Upgrading Roof Vent??

My FR trailer came with 2 overhead vents installed. The one in the bathroom has a small fan it it that is controlled with a wall switch. The vent in the kitchen area had no fan but I installed a HONGS Vortex single speed exhaust fan in it, however it is noisy and marginally effective.. Is there anything better on the market that will mount in the existing frame that would work better? I do not want to change to one that requires removing what is there and having to reseal the roof opening.

It should be a 14x14 opening, start looking at places like CW or any RV supply, that is common size of the vents. Should have a lot of choices out there.

We had a MAXX-air vent fan installed in the living/kitchen area because it has a remote, it does a great job with moving air in or out.
It opens and closes automatically and can be closed by hand is need be.



The noise level is not a bother.
