My Fantastic fan with the motorized lid works fine with the Maxx Air cover.

I hardly ever turn my fantastic fan on. If it gets hot in camper DW turns on the A/C. We have two A/C plus the fantastic fan.

I put Maxx-Air covers on all 4 vents simply for the rain & UV protection. The Fantastic Fan cover doesn't open 100% but almost...haven't noticed any performance issues yet....

Saw one post that said they should not be covered.

What have others done? PROS / CONS
Another reason for having a cover over the vent it allows you to keep the vent open in the winter when you are storing it. That way you get air circulation and prevent mildew from forming.

I have covers on all three roof vents. MaxAir on the two normal exhaust fans and a special one for the Fantastic vent. Camping World sells them for both fans (the Fantastic vent is designed to allow additional air flow for the fan and costs just a few dollars more, slightly different shape but colors are the same). If you're in Good Sam, they'll even install them for about $15 each which was way cheaper than me breaking my neck falling off the roof!

Also lets you air out the trailer, when it isn't being used, by allowing you to open the vents without fear of rain getting in.

When I got to installing the vent cover on motorized vent I realized cover would hit. I had chosen cover to match those already in place.. Called manufacturer (which I believe is same as yours). Answer was that it is ok if cover hits as it has torque sensing and stops at that point with no damage done. That was over a year ago and all is well. Call them to verify for yourself.
