MaxxAire Mod

Finally! finished the mod that should have been done months ago...indeed SHOULD have been done in the factory instead of those POS fans in the Bathroom and toilet and the Fantastic Fan without a remote control on a 7' ceiling

Wonderful MaxxAire 7500K automatic fans with covers replace the stock fans. And WOW they are super quiet to boot (the stock fans were very noisy!)

Looks good Bob. I thought you would like those. Did you put them both in?

Our salon fan is a Maxxair form the factory, however it's a four speed all manual without the all weather cover. Nice and quiet though.

Looks great Bob.

I'm looking to replace the MaxxAir fan in my bathroom.
Not because of not being able to reach it to turn it on (It has a wall switch) but I want to reclaim the outside height of the current fan and the MaxxAir cover that sits about 12" above my roof line.

The MaxxAir Deluxe would save me about 6" on my already 13'+ high 5th wheel as it is at the top of the roof slope and sits even higher than my A/C unit.

Thumbs up

Have two of them in our Lexi 283ts, one in front living room and one in bedroom.
When one of them is on 50% air in, and the other is on 50% air out, you can feel a nice little breeze flowing through the rig.
Really a nice fan.

Thanks and Roll Tide Brother!!

What you cannot really see is how freak'n low profile they are - they close up lower than the low profile Dometic A/Cs we have!

Put all *3* in

With the 7' ceilings Anne-Marie could not reach the Fantastic-Vent, so I replaced that too! It really is nice to have the remote controls at eye level in the kitchen, bathroom & toilet(and snazzy looking too!)

Thanks SO much for turning me on to these Jim!

Ours was a Fantastic Vent - high end fan, and nice BUT we have 7' ceilings and Anne-Marie could not reach the fan and FR did not provide a wall control

You will like these! Ultra low profile - closed they will be much lower than your A/C units.
