MaxxAir Questions

Hey everyone,

I have a two stationary vents (w/o power) and one powered fan vent on my new TT. I need to understand if it's the MaxxAir II that goes on the stationary vents and the FanMate over the powered fan vent.

Thanks! Joe

Not exactly sure what you are asking but the MaxxAir II vents go on the outside over top of your existing vents - can go over all three for that matter

when you open your inside vents the Maxxait II vents allow air to come in and keep the bugs and rain out.

I have a powered fan in my bathroom and a no fan over my bead and they both have Maxxair II vents over them - Keeps the rain and bugs out - wouldnt go without ever again

X2 - The MaxxAir II will work fine with a Fantastic Fan.

I put the MaxxAir II vent covers over my two non power vents. I didn't put one over the power ventilated bathroom vent. Probably will end up doing it but just haven't yet.

According to this flyer at http://www.maxxair.com/brochures/fanmate_front_page.pdf the FanMate is designed to fit over Fantastic Fan, MaxxFan Standard, ShurFlo Confort Air or any other high volume RV roof ventilator.
By contrast, the bullet comments located at Maxxair II | Latest indicates the MaxAirII "can be safely installed over high powered RV ventilator fans; however our Fan/Mate® is specifically designed for this application allowing higher air flow from your existing ventilator fan."

Based on this information, I would use the MaxAirIIs over your regular vents, and put the FanMate over your fan powered vent.

+1 for the the FanMate over your fan powered vent, according to Napa RV. They claim that the Maxxair and the Maxxair II restrict the maximum airflow from and they only way to get all the benefit is to install the FanMate.

Thanks for the clarification and feedback on the MaxxAir II & FanMate, there seems to be quite a few ways to improve air flow in the cabin.

I went to the fantastic fan site, this is what they have. I am looking at the MaxxAir FanMate also. This is what Fantastic fan quotes on their web site.
Note:
Never place a vent cover over, or filter on a
fan. Greatly restricted airflow and increased sound levels
will occur.

Anyone hearing additional noise from their added cover, vibration seems possible, but that could be dampened I'm sure.

You probably have the same vent setup that I have which is a vent w/o a fan (fan-less) in the living room and bedroom and a power vent in the bathroom. The Maxxair II goes over the fan-less vents and the FanMate goes over the bathroom vent where the fan is located. I just recently purchased and installed these on my travel trailer.
