The first thing I did was put 3 Max Airs on my 5th wheel. At $19.95 (on sale) it was a cheap mod.

Vent covers and/or fans

Would installing a Maxx Air cover be alright for circulation or should I upgrade my fan as well?
Thanks!
We have a factory installed Northern Breese in the bathroom vent- It is quieter than the plain exhaust fan we have had in the past- It is also more efficient- We think the Northern Breese fan is a good investment and plan to have one installed in the living area vent which currently has no fan at all- We have a vent cover on the bathroom vent and leave it open at all times- JMHO-DD

How many inches clearance is required on the left and right side of the vent that you want to install the Maxxair II vent cover on?

Very easy. All the hardware is provided you just need roof sealant, drill, small bit for pilot holes, socket or wrench for holding the small nuts and a phillips head. Maybe 1/2 hr to 45 mins each one once your on top.

So easy you'll wonder why you didn't install one sooner.

So has anyone added a vent cover in a dark or smoked color to help reduce the light that comes in? I don't mind the light in the bath room (in fact the more the better, but the vents above the bed's could go with a little less light, especially in the morning.

How effective are the dark covers in blocking some of the light?
