What's involved in installing the Maxx Air covers? Do you use rubber well nuts or go right into the roof and seal? I do all my own work, just never messed with a fiberglass roof. Thanks.
Have installed MaxxAir covers on all my campers.
Installed the MaxxAir II on my newest.

As for installing them, they do not fasten to the roof.
There is a 2” +/- flange around the vent on the outside.
The MaxxAir brackets screws to the flange.

The MaxxAir covers come with (4) brackets & both sheet metal screws as well as machine bolts/nuts.
It takes about 10 mins per cover to install.
On my latest install I tossed all the screws/bolts & use pop rivets. Why, I don’t know just had them in my tool bag when I got up on the roof.

Maxx IIs are hands down the best way to go.
They are hinged for easy cleaning.

A max air vent does not attach to the roof but to the side of the vents. They are easy to install. Just follow the instructions. You can go to the max air site and see how they are installed.

I stand corrected:

My bathroom fan opens at the rear, as you would expect.

Just went out and checked.

Musta been looking at it "sideways" last time......

Except for a Dec trip to FL we don’t winter camp.
While in storage I do keep the vents with MaxxAir covers open all winter to help promote air circulation within the camper.
Have never had a moisture issue with any unit we’ve owned while it was in storage.
We used to use Damp Rid, emptying the container every month but as our campers got bigger Damp Rid got expensive & impractical.
