I have the MaxxAir II's over my vents without fans and the Fanmate over the bathroom vent which of course has a fan. I used these vent covers the same way on my old tt as well. Never had a problem.
I have read several post where people have used the MaxxAir II's on vents with fans. So far I haven't read of anyone having any problems.
Do whichever way you're comfortable with and enjoy.

We run a max air 2 over my fantastic fan in the bathroom. Never noticed any extra noise or reduced performance. The fan will still pull the bathroom door shut, even on low. Best $50 I spent. I have two original max airs, I should swap them out with the new style to enable easier cleaning.

Happy camping,

Shineysideup

From the MaxxAir website: "
The MaxxAir II Vent Cover can be safely installed over high-powered RV ventilator fans, however
our Fan/Mate Fan Cover specifically designed for this application allows higher air flow from your
existing ventilator fan."
If I remember right when I was installing them on my TT a coupler years ago the Fan Mate was a lot more expensive than the MaxxAir II. My experience is the same as Shineysideup's, and have been very happy with the performance of the MaxxAirII with the Fantastic Fan.

Same here, no extra noise with my MaxxAirFanmMate.

grhodes50 / Gary and Trish, what do you use to clean your roof? I definitely want some of what ever it is. Cleanest roof I can ever recall seeing. Please let me/us know.

That's why ended up with a maxair2 on my bathroom vent. I was too cheap to buy the "proper" vent cover the first year I had the trailer. The following year the maxair2 came out and I didn't think I had much to lose. Turn's out, this is the first vent that should have a cover! The fantastic fan can really pull a lot of air, creating a major breeze through your trailer, covered, this can happen rain or shine!

Happy camping,

Shineysideup

Would anyone know if the Camco roof vents and the Maxx air ll would take the same bolt holes? My dealer installed the Camco vents. He said the were easier to clean. Our new trailer has the Fantastic fan option. I was wondering if I needed the Maxx air ll's for better circulation.
Thanks,
Randy

I installed the Camcos on my non motorized vents....much cheaper than the MaxxAirs. I don't see how the MaxxAirs could do any better than the Camcos.

I just answered your pm and included a link to this thread I posted last summer after I used Protect All Rubber Roof Treatment for the first time.

Here's the link if anyone else is interested; http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ent-13764.html

Well I'm glad that this thread is so active - I'm actually learning something. Better than some of the others . . .
