Fantastic Fans

Has anyone installed the fantastic fans under the Max air vent covers on the FR3. I have been told that there would not be enough air flowing through the fantastic fans to cool the motor home. All replies are appreciated.

We have (2)FF and when the Vent is open in the Bed Room with these 2 running it is like a Wind Tunnel! We have Max Air Covers on all 3 opening! Youroo!!

We have one FF in the front end and opening the window in the back is all it takes for a great breeze. Close off the other windows at night , leaving the vents open and the back window open is great.

I had three FF's in my 34' class A. I'll be adding the third fan in my XLR in the garage where FR has a 4' fan that is mostly useless. Yes, I like a good breeze inside a camper...keeps me from having to run the a/c which I only do if it's unbearable. The MaxAir covers will fit & function fine.

I suggest using Fan-Tastic Ultra Breeze Covers. The video below shows the difference in air flow between the different covers.

I had two 7350 Fan-Tastic fans, with the Ultra Breeze vent covers, installed in our MH. With one set to intake and one set to exhaust it can be wind tunnel if you want one! Don't forget the optional snap in bug screens for the UltraBreezes...

Since the XLR arrived with the MaxAir covers I gotta use 'em...otherwise I would use the Ultra Breeze vent covers.

I have 3 Fantastic Fans with MaxAir covers on them, no problem at all. Lots of air movement...more than is needed. We used the MaxAir11's...a bit more air flow due to wider design.

We use the Maxx Air 2 on our Fantastic Fan and it works just fine.

I did by those universal fans that can be mounted from the inside which is great (so I did not have to mess with the roof). They are half the price and take about 10-20 minutes to install. Not quite as nice as fantastic fan, but it sure works well. It is called the Vortex II. Got it at camping world.

Basically remove the inside vent 4 screws. Grab your low volt wires which should hopefully be there. Remount.
