Max air II vent on a X23J

I want to install a Max Air II vent cover over the roof vent on my 2011 X23J. The problem is the black tank vent is right next to the roof vent. I am wondering if anyone has explored this project, will it fit, will a Max Air standard vent fit? I would expect the 23B to have a similar problem?

I ran into a similar problem on my Eagle. I initially installed the Maxxair Fan/Mate cover, the problem was it extended right "over the top" of the stink pipe...not good.

Took it back and installed the standard Maxxair cover as shown below:



Just a little tip...., if your bath vent fan is a high speed unit, remove the fine mesh screen from the the Standard Maxxair (if you use it), it will reduce the back pressure when the fan is in use.

tslarson-- On my 19H the corner of the max air cover just goes over the sealer for the vent cover about 3/4 of an inch, so I cut a grove in the sealer, not all the way through but enough the make the cover sit level. Just as an fyi, I have you haven't got that far yet, the cover doesn't sit touching the roof. Larry

I was just on the Max Air website and found great diagrams of both vents and how they compare with each other. Just have to print them out, and do a little measuring on the roof. Should have checked the website days ago. Thanks for everyones help.
