Maxx Air roof vent.

I am wanting to install a roof vent cover on my 22 FB. It has a factory installed fan in it now.
I leave my vent open a crack most of the time, I have my TT parked at my house, so I can close it during inclement weather.
Would installing a Maxx Air cover be alright for circulation or should I upgrade my fan as well?
Thanks!

We have factory installed fan in bedroom and a fantastic fan in the bathroom. We covered both with the Maxx Air cover so we could keep fans open in inclement weather. The air definitely moves much better with the fantastic fan vs the regular

I put Maxx Air II's on all my units and they do not leak one bit, even during heavy downpours. If you get a sideways rain you might get some inside, but normal rain not one issue. All my vents stay wide open underneath at all times. Towing, stored, or while camping without AC. They are easy to install and can be opened up with the pull of 2 pins on either side to clean or work on something. Mine are all white except the front which I is silver to filter light for over my master bed. On my Northern Breeze fan, (high volume) in the bathroom I installed the fan mate 850. This is just a cover to handle the increased volume of air leaving the camper, not an additional fan. They make upgrade kits that plug into exisiting hatches you can buy online for as little as $35.00 and put in without making new holes to upgrade your stock fan.

Maxx Air or some external cover are a must do mod IMHO. If your out, or away from your camper and it rains unexpectedly you have nothing to fear. We came home to a wet bed once! Never again.

I have two on my Designer. They work great and I have never had a leak in any weather. I don't leave the vents open when I tow however. I want as little dust coming in as possible.

Same here. I put a dark one above bed room vent to cut out the light and sleep longer. The others are white. I have never had a leak, even above bed when towing in heavy down pours.

I also have a FB22. I had the bath vent removed and had a Fantastic fan installed and a Max Air vent cover. works great no leaks and better circulation than the original fan.
