They attach to the vent frame. You drill a few holes in the vent frame and bolt the brackets there and there are carriage bolts that go in the brackets to hold the vent in place. It takes maybe 20 minutes per vent to install them.

Last month I bought 2 Camco covers. I'm so handy that I made the dealer intalling them. Nice job and I like it!

You do not want to caulk around them This is from Maxx Air's website:The gap between our Vent Covers and the RV roof is designed to be there so any wind driven rain or condensation that collects underneath the Vent can easily drain out. Please Do Not Use Caulk.

I have two Maxxair II's on the front and rear main vents, and a Fan/Mate 850 on the Create-a-Breeze in the head. All were a snap to install and work great

If you have your standard vents open more than an inch or so, rain can come inside...bad! Even just "cracked" I've seen heavy rain splash hard enough to penetrate. And going down the road these standard vents should always be closed.

With the MaxxAir covers you can leave the vents fully open and stop worrying about the rain. Also, they prevent leaves and pine needles from falling down onto the vent screens. You can also leave your vents open when traveling (except perhaps in the most violent of rain storms) without worrying about water penetration. A final benefit is that it protects the cheap plastic on the standard vents (which can be a pain to replace) from exposure to the elements so they last much longer.

Ruben, Maxxair air vents is almost a must! If you can afford them get the newer model has more vent area and easy to clean.
