This vent you cannot put a maxxair cover on it so the design should prevent rain from getting in. Has anyone else with this model or this type of vent had this happen?

It only leaks when open. If I leave for the day and leave it open, and it rains, I will have a puddle in the bathroom.
I read your post 3 times and am wondering if you have a cover over the vent. Cuz if you don't and you leave the vent lid open, it will let rain water in, no doubt about it.

The vent is designed to be left open. If it leaks something is wrong.

So the way this vent works is, you turn the knob about a half turn, and that lifts the lid which opens the sides to let air in and out. I am guessing it only opens 1/2" if that....then you turn it, and it lowers down to close. There is a built in cover on it designed so you dont need a vent cover.

It doesn't lift the lid it opens a flapper. The lid is fixed.

Ours does the same. Everything about that vent/fan disappoints me. Our fan quit working on our 2 week trip we just got home from. Wife wants to have the dealer fix, I want to just put a Fantastic vent or Maxx air vent in its place instead of getting garbage to replace garbage.

Mine was cracked and I didn't notice until I got it home after initial pick up. I put gorilla tape on it and took it on the initial camp. Took them 3 weeks to get the replacement vent. These things are cheap and honestly, I don't see myself opening the darn thing at all. Will just run a small fan to circulate air

Ditto, not the greatest fan by any stretch. I had to 'rebuild' the on/off switch on our 2nd trip out, fan just wouldn't stay on as the disk inside wasn't making good contact.

That said, mine hasn't leaked during rain so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Knock-on-wood, mine hasn't leaked either. I was up on the roof yesterday, inspecting all sealant closely before our trip. I checked the vent closely and I don't have any cracks and it appears to be some-what sturdy. Not something you can put your finger easily through as another posted mentioned. Mine opens and closes the same way (sides tilt up to vent) and the fan (so far) still works. We've been to 7 camping sites so far, for 17 nights so we are getting use out of our new rig.
