Others may differ, but I wouldn't install a cover on the Creat-a-Breeze in the head. The manufacturer recommends against it in the literature, saying it will decrease the effectiveness of the unit. I followed that guidance, and installed Maxxair II's on the remaining crank-up vents in the TT.

I have a fantastic fan in our TT bathroom. I installed the maxxair 2 over the fan. I'm sure it does slow it down some but the fan is so powerful that it can pull the bathroom door shut if it is slightly open. This way, you can run the fan in the rain also... I realize there are several models available for this purpose but I couldn't justify the difference in price for a vent cover.

happy camping,

I was concerned about the caulk around the vents also. I called Max Air they told me NOT to remove any caulk. They told me to place the brackets on top of the caulk and drill the holes. Piece of cake did 3 in 30 minutes.

I installed a white one over the Fantastic Fan in the bathroom and the fan still works great. The white cover lets plenty of light in. I installed a black one on the vent over the bed. I wasn't interested in a lot of light early in the morning! The black cover does a good job of blocking the light and I have not noticed any heat gain.

threegr8katz, here are the black ones installed on our 2702SS. No noticeable extra heat due to the color black, and the create-a-breeze fan doesn't appear to be restricted by them in any way.

IMO, they are sharp looking.
