Still on one of my (many) lists also...

Is this vent really required for the vent with the fan installed?

The way I read it, it looks like 2manytoyz installed a standard vent over the fan...

MrSen, 'only need two'? Were you going to not install one on the bath vent/fan?

FYI....
Camping World and RV suppliers have now brackets available to modify the original fixed mounts for the vent covers so they hinge and you are able to clean your vent screens without having to remove bolts. These new brackets run about $9.00

Sounds pretty slick. I just might have to check them out.

Thanks,

You betcha! Just be safe about it, don't fall off, wear good rubber soled shoes (so you don't slip), make sure your shoes are clean no rocks (very bad on rubber roofs). Most RV roofs are 3/8" plywood (some are 1/2") with a pretty sturdy sub-frame under them.

Now if you're on the large side (over 275lbs), you may want to grab a couple of half sheets of clean 1/4" or 1/2" plywood and use those to distribute the weight more evenly across a larger area. Make sure the edges and corners are sanded smooth. Use the "place one infront of the other" routine and walk yourself over to where you need to be. If you use this method you may want to place your tools and other items in a bucket and leave them on the ground and tie a rope to it to pull up after you get to where you're going.

Just be careful and use common sense. Keep control of your tools and sharp objects. Remember you are doing a modification and don't want to have to do a repair job on the rubber roof afterwards.


Good luck and let us know how it goes!!

Greg

Oh, and while you're up there, it's a perfect time to wash your roof and check for tears and potential problems around the objects on your roof (AC, skylights, ladder mounts, TV antenna............)

And you don't need any "special" rubber roof cleaner or treatments (waste of money and may void your warrenty). Plain 'ol car wash soap or Simple Green work just fine. Get a good soft scrub brush on an extension handle though to speed up the process.

Well said and I use murphy's oil soap on my roof and it works GREAT!

Thought I'd revive this post to ask a question.... I have Maxairs on all 4 vents, including the two bath vents that have Fantastic fans. What is everyone's thoughts on replacing those two covers with the ones designed for the higher airflow of those bath fans? If I didn't already have the regular covers and if they weren't in good shape, I wouldn't think twice, but is there enough advantage to warrent upgrading?

This works for me. Turn the light switch, the light and the fan on. Now use the switch on either the light or the fan to control that individual unit.
