When installing the Maxx Air vents, do you have to drill new holes in the roof or do they use the existing holes that the original vents are fastened with?

They fasten to the vent frame. You must drill small holes for the mounting brackets. I put 4 on in about an hour and a half. Love the vents!

Do you have to do some more sealing afterwards, and if so, what do you use?

No sealing required. As others have said. A lot of good positives. I would not have an RV without them. Another positive. When in storage, you can open the vents without rain and it helps keep it cooler when vents are open.

No but if you use the fantastic vent over a fantastic fan you will use some existing holes and put some self leveling dicor on and that still only takes 1/2 hour or so for that vent cover from start to finish

Sounds good. Question, since I've never bought or installed one before. What do I need to know before purchasing, so I get the right ones?
