X7 on the Maxairs. I don't leave home without them partially open for air circulation.

I guess I'm x??, but I rarely close my vents, and don't give it much thought.

Maxx Air, it is! Will do for next season. The crank should not be worn out, as it is a new trailer.

Had the same problem in ours, I was not tightening the handle enough. Just put on covers this weekend so we don't have to worry!

The crank is faulty then, Have them put a new crank in under warranty......or have them send you one and put it in yourself.

Hey, can I join the club?

I just installed a pair of Maxxair II's a few weeks back. I left them open when we got deluged with 4 inches of rain one Saturday. Nary a drop inside.

We have the Maxair covers and never close them. Keeps a little air circulating.
We got inches of rain last weekend a diary drop inside.

If you run with the vent covers on and the vents open, you might not want to do it in the rain. The negative pressure created inside the camper would probably draw water in past your slide seals.
Otherwise, they are the bee's knees.
