I'm in AZ where it's 75 degrees in the winter, and I never have cooling issues.
    That's true. It will definitely be cooler here... Thx!

    I got these for my ammo boxes
    https://www.roundvents.com/3-round-b...PLBL-100-3.htm
    using 2 on each box and and I got some cheap 80mm 2 pin 12vdc fans off eBay from China for 1 of the vents, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F263219432684

    Manufacturer:
    Maurice Franklin
    Item #:
    PLBL 100 3"
    These small round plastic vents are made of high quality UV stabilized wire and cable grade polypropylene.

    They have a unique polypropylene screen system to keep insects out.
    They are easy to install. They fit into the hole made by a drill-type hole saw and are held in place by knobs on the side of the vent. No nails or screws are needed.

    How well do they keep water out?

    I don’t know. But with some Ge silicone around the vent. They should be just as good as the expensive bud Inds. Vents they look the same as far as holes in the vent

    In a driving rain (what we call "horizontal rain" here) water can get in.
    In normal, "falling" rain they seem to do OK. The Bud vents are superior in that they are actually covered by a hood with the air opening at the bottom of the hood.
