Make sure you --------

Make sure you "UNSNAP" the vent hood vent cover outside the wall before operating the hood vent fan.

I open when parked, snapped closed when traveling.

in your bedroom with no noise of the fan running.
We like the maxxair over our bed because we can much better feel the
breeze when it's blowing down on us. If we put it on exhaust and open
a window only one of us can feel the breeze due to window location.
Also in a hard rain we can't open the window next to the bed.
We can use our maxxair over our bed in the hardest rain if we choose.
Also the maxxair over our bed can be switched on or off without
getting out of bed. Can't do that with a fan in another location unless
you spring the extra buck$ for a remote control fan.

Plus if we put a fan on exhaust mode with all windows shut except one
as we might need to do in a rain- the negative pressure in the trailer
WILL pull a smell out of the toilet. Using the fan for intake air
creates positive pressure in the trailer and the odor from the john
is not there.

We've had maxxair fans over our bed in 2 trailers and wouldn't consider
going without it.
Gotta have some breeze unless we're cold camping.
Wife has hot flashes and I also like the fresh air.
