Roof vent cover installation help

I just purchased 2 roof vent covers for our TT one can be installed as directions show for the bedroom vent but the one that goes over the bathroom vent doesn't seem to work.The directions show mounting 4 brackets to the side of vent then installing vent on to brackets. As I said that worked for one. The bathroom vent is a power fan vent and I dont see how to install it this way. Any suggestions for install?????? Can I mount directly to roof and not side of vent???? If so help with that also.

which vents did you get?

I would not install it to the roof - as that will compromise the rubber membrane.

can you take pictures of the vents?

You may have to pull the fan section out and then re-mount everything

When I installed the roof vent on the power fan vent,I had to drop the inside panel with the switches to access the area to put the washers and nuts on.

This is a MaxxAir II over my Fantastic Fan. Not sure what issues you are having, but maybe these pics will help. The brackets will sit about 1/4" high off the roof. One pic shows how much the lid opens with the cover over it.

Thanks for the pics thats exactly the same vent Im dealing with, What I dont see is how the brackets are secured the the plastic vent itself ? Do you have to remove power vent to install brakets

You don't have to remove anything. If you have MaxxAir covers the bracket has holes that you can see in RoadDog 66's first picture. Predrill a hole and use included screws or nuts and bolts to secure the bracket to the plastic lip of vent. See picture 2a of the instructions.

My vent cover is a Caper World cover but it does have the same brackets.I installed the first one and it bolted into the metal frame. The picture above is the same power vent I have and Im just not sure about installing the brackets to the plastic frame which is also wider then bolt length provided thats why I asked if it needed to be disassembled in order to bolt on brackets

The Fantastic Fan on my Roo has an all plastic surround and was easy to drill through. The bolts provided with the MaxxAir were plenty long enough. Maybe you just need to buy some longer bolts. The fan itself stays in place and doesn't need removed. I just opened the fan cover, climbed on the roof, drilled the holes and installed the brackets. The MaxxAir II has a hinged side that allows the cover to open to one side for cleaning, not sure about the Camping World one. Best of luck.

I have power vent fans that I recently installed the Maxx Air II on. I had the same issue until I noticed the supplemental instructions on the paper cover that came with the fan. I used the small screws to install it. You need to be very careful in drilling the holes to avoid hitting any of the electrical connections. Also the hole to predrill is smaller than the bolt holes. When I purchased the unit, these instructions for mounting on power fans is not clearly evident, at least they were not to me. I had all of the stuff on the roof and was ready to go, but initially ran into the same problem as you. Covers work very well. Good luck...
