Vent fan

Hello all, I have been thinking about installing a Maxxair fan in the living room area of my trailer. The only vent fan in the trailer currently is in the bathroom which came with the trailer. What I want to know is how much would a vent fan in the living area help keep the trailer cool. The trailer spends most of the time in sunny hot Florida. Just getting some thoughts on the subject before I pull the trigger. Also if you have a Maxxair fan how do you like it. I am think about the 7000k model. Thanks in advance

Not a lot of info here, but using it as an exhaust fan could take warm, stale air OUT of the rig.

We have 3 of the 4500K and have the Maxxair Fan/Mate Vent Covers. I would say the cross ventilation they create makes a big difference and having the fans running on Auto is much more pleasant than running the AC all the time, but you're in FL and we're in Southern Alberta, Canada - apples to oranges. Overall - they should be mandatory IMO.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to order one and see how it works out. If it's okay I will get one more for the bedroom area. It has to help some what. It's 94 right today

My vent in living room does a great job pulling warm air out and making sure there is good airflow even if there is no wind.

Have a Maxx-Air in the living room/kitchen area I have one with the remote pulls air in or out and can be used as a ceiling fan.

I do not recall the model number.

Thinking about getting one for the bedroom.
