Should Fantastic Fans be covered with a Vent Cover

Wondering if the Fantastic Fans should be covered with a Vent Cover.

Saw one post that said they should not be covered.

What have others done? PROS / CONS

I think all vents should be covered so you can open them in the rain and still get air. I have 3 vents and installed covers on them all. It will also help in the summer when traveling you could leave the vents open and not worry. So I guess I say yes good idea. Very easy installation which is a plus. But that's just MO, maybe others think different...Safe Travels to you. I really do not see any Con to them...

I have mine covered, like being able to use them during a rainy day.

Should Fantastic Fans be covered with a Vent Cover

Was wondering the same thing since I installed a vent cover over mine .
But did you notice he meant the fantastic fan that has auto open/close lid?
I'm pretty sure that's why he said no go, now with that said my lid is remotely controlled with a rain sensor that auto closes it and it has a vent cover over it.

See I think he was talking about the remotely opening lid, which you think would hit the top of vent cover then bind up however it goes up and hits it and stops.
I have max air fan mates and love them.

I used the actual fantastic vent covers, and mine operate automatically on a temp sensor or rain sensor.

Fan-tastic fans can be covered, just use Fan-tastic Vent covers and you will not have any problems. If you check You-Tube there are videos showing how Fan-tastic covers do not cause any drop in air flow while other brands do impede the air flow. I added two 7350 fans with Fan-tastic covers, and the optional snap in bug screens and they work great. See Here for more info on our setup...
