Here's a look through of the back of the cover. Clearance is the same on both sides, and basically the same toward the front of the cover (trailer). And I installed it using the instructions from Fantastic Fan.




After you lower the top, you can pull the cover off in seconds. Just remove the hairpin cotter pins and washers from the four clevis pins that the cover is mounted to at four locations. Then lift the cover straight up and off.

Here's the instructions for installing on a clamp mount fan mount. So if you remove the cover, you can see if they installed the screws at the four proper locations.

I think my fan has screw style not clip cause without drilling I don't see how he would have installed it and I don't think he drilled it. He didn't have a drill but after he started I went inside and paid and talked to the guys about other stuff but he was done in minutes. Hopefully I can look at it tomorrow or Monday.

If you have a screw on mount, then there will be a bunch of screws all around the horizontal mount perimeter.
But that is even easier to mount, just remove the 2nd from the front and back screws on each side.

Yeah that's what the directions say and the youtube video. Hopefully it's just the seal

Kinma, taking a look at my 276 vent, there are no exposed screws around the vent. If yours is the same as mine, then the installation uses the clamp style.

I just cleaned my roof and forgot to close my vent in the bathroom . I was directing the hose spray all around the vent, to get the loose crap out from under the edge. End of story went into the trailer and found the vent was open and was surprised there wasn't a drop of water anywhere.

Well took the pup down and took the cover off looks like it's a clip mount. But the dealer used the brackets that came with the cover. They just drilled and screw the brackets down. Guess it's going back to the dealer. Thanks for everyone's help. Just hope they can fix it

Clip mount or clamp mount? But if clamp, that is how it is supposed to be installed. Drill four holes, mount brackets with enclosed screws, tighten. (Caulk the hole and the top of the screw head too.)

Well called fantastic vents today . They say the brackets for screw or clamp style are the same just clamp style they have the drilling locations. Hopefully the dealer located the cover b4 drilling and it's just the lock or seal. I'll find out Thursday due to rains coming tonight and all day tomorrow. Figure crossed
