Pros: added ventilation during storage, reduced heat all the time. The Sun will tear up the little lids from the factory - UV is a killer. Protects the cheap lids, can keep open during rain if needed. Our major plus is heat. We have black maxx air on ours.

Cons: you have to put them on. Get someone to help, or you'll have to go up and down to make sure they are lined up appropriately.

Get them.

I've got two Fan-Tastic Vent's Vent Covers on both my Fantastic Fans. The standard fan in the bathroom has a Maxxi cover. Withe the FF brand covers I notices little if no restriction when the fans are turned on over how the fans worked without the covers. For me the extra layer over the vents gives me peace of mind in case a branch or hail hits the roof. It's one more layer to keep water out of the interior. I'd rather pay to replace a cracked or broken cover than have a vent cover break and let it rain/snow into the inside of the motorhome.

Mike , I see your coach is similar to ours, so I think are vent sizes are the same. I was just looking on Amazon and I see the MaxAir II is 22.5 x 20 x 11 inches. Is that the right size. Seems a little big. Thx, Ben

On a standard (non-fan) vent, use the MaxxAir or MaxxAir II covers. On a vent with a high powered fan like the Fantastic Fan, use either the Fantastic Fan Ultrabreeze cover or the MaxxAir FANMATE cover. The MaxxAir II will restrict airflow on the higher fan speeds but may be OK at lower speeds.

I had MaxxAir covers installed on my current TT by the selling dealer before it left the lot, but they are an easy DIY install.

I prefer the MaxxAir models with a hinge for easier inspection of the Dicor sealant. With the Ultrabreeze, you have to fiddle with cotter pins and washers.

I installed 2 MaxxAir II covers on my 2700DS today, very easy install. I have a Fantastic Fan Ultrabreeze cover to put on my Fantastic Fan but I need to buy some Dicor to reseal where they have you remove the fan mounting screws. The Fantastic Fan Ultrabreeze cover allows you to open the fan cover almost all the way.

Thanks

Youroo, great help. Dealer did not know what was coming and I almost ordered Ultrabreeze. I was not aware of the fan mate version. Guess I've been under a rock or something.

Now, I'll just wait for our 30WFKSS to show up.

We use a sombrero down here.
