I too had a similar problem. It turned out a critter (mud-Dabber) had built a nest under the lip of the vent outlet, against the screening, blocking the vent. I cleaned it out and darned if he/she didn't come back and rebuild the nest a second time the following week. I cleaned it out again and sprayed the screening with some repellent which seems to have done the trick.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
