Sorry to hear that. That seems pretty low but I've never priced that brand.

My point exactly, jayco says $37 then wonder what Jayco prices a MaxxAir vent at? I don't want to use Jayco's price for the EzBreeze then use a dealers price for the other.. Grrrr

Sad that Jayco continues to use things like these that is knows for poor quality when they are to me the Top RV Manufacture. Jayco wouldn't give me a price difference, they said that is something the dealer would have to do ..

I think all of us agree fully with this. I'd rather have a quality fan, or a vent with no fan at all. A garbage fan doesn't help and is a waste of money.

Not sure I agree with you on this. Why would you expect Jayco be able to give you a cost of a fan that they don't use in the manufacturing process? It would be something through the dealers parts department, so the parts department at your dealer would be the one to talk to.

Well I spoke with Jayco again and they said the retail price of the fan is $46 and that would be the allowance towards a different fan. I'm waiting to hear back from my dealer on what they'll do for me. This will be my 4th trip taking it back to the dealer since March so I asked them to cover the difference for a better fan - we'll see.

At least Jayco gave you a price. When I spoke with them it was like I was asking for the security number to their saving account or something. I just wanted a figure so I would know or have a ballpark at what I was looking at. I really don't think you could go to camping world and buy a EzBreeze for the $ they are saying. This really bums me that they know they have a problem and aren't really doing much to try and fix it. What if they got their money for their rv's like they are dealing with this issue? If mine was the only one I could understand a little better but it seems to be a widespread problem with quit a few. Why would I want to put the same back on when the first didn't last but 2 camping trips? Grrr enough belly aching from me, sorry for the rant and rave..

Looks like you can buy this POS at CW at twice the price that Jayco is allowing for replacement. I've had over 30 issues already addressed under warranty and you would think Jayco could step up and put a decent replacement fan in it. The MaxxAir manual open sells for $125 online so you know cost has to be under $100.

Add another one to the list... I got up on the roof to do some maintenance and the EZ breeze fan was brittle along the edges and cracked when I touched it. I added a vent cover, which should protect from leaks. I think anyone with this fan needs a cover to protect from UV/Leaks. Not sure if I'm going to bother bringing it in if they are going to replace it with another of the same kind. Also, checked all of the caulking and all was good except for around the antenna. There were several cracks in the caulk around it. I'm guessing that the antenna moves, so it might be prone to pulling at the caulk. I put on some dicor and will probably replace it with a fixed antenna soon...

What cover did you use on the broken vent? My unit is in service right now and i am trying to get this repaired under warranrty. Dealer stated i must have hit something and cracked it. They stated a maxair cover wouldnt fit this??? Anyone else have luck getting this repaired under warranty?

Fan-tastic Ultrabreeze Vent Cover - Black - Dometic U1500BLS - Vents - Camping World

I put this one on. I thought it was the best design and easy to install. A little pricey, though. I am happy with it.
