MaxxAir vents made a huge improvement for us.

I installed a MaxAir II vent cover on my vent and leave it open, I do not run heat at night, I only turn it on when I get up in the morning since I usually don't camp where there is power. The warmer you try to keep the trailer on a cold day the more likely you will get condensation. I only run the heater sparingly just to take the edge off the cold. I have had very little issues with condensation since. The key is ventilation especially if you have a number of people sleeping in the trailer.

How do you like your MaxAir II covers compared to the original MaxAir covers (if you owned those)? How about colors (smoke/clear vs. white)?

Crack the vents and a window or two as others have stated. Also if you have the single layer glass windows you will typically see condensation pool up at the bottom.

I installed the original MaxxAir (white) on our first TT (X23B) and the MAxx II (smoke) on the newer 5th. I don't see much (any) difference in performance but the Maxx folks claim the II vents better due to a larger vent area. The II has the "hinged" mounts which is nice. Both keep the rain out and we leave the vent open pretty much full time even in storage.

Do any MaxAir owners have a preference on color?

I have read that they darken the room since the vent is being covered. Curious if the "clear smoke" color is worth the extra cost or if standard white works just as well with letting in adequate light.

Hmmm, haven't considered this before. The first TT had a white Maxx and it didn't affect the light much. Our 5th that has the smoke Maxx also has a skylight so it hasn't affected it either.

I would expect a bath without a skylight would be darker. The smoke does let some light in and I would expect the black to pretty much block light but the vents will allow some in so I wouldn't expect a total blackout.
