Maxair covers

Are Maxair covers worth doing? And why

Yes they are worth it. You can keep your vents open when it rains. They also protect your vent covers from sunlight and maybe hail. Your original vent covers will last longer.

Lets you keep your trailer 'venting' when not in use with no risk of rain water getting in

The keep the vent area cooler inside when direct sun is on the vent
We have a vent in our bedroom, with a black vent cover it keeps the early morning sunlight out of the bedroom.
Plus as other have stated it allows usage during rain.

They are nice to have and serve a purpose as stated above. They do not stop 100% of rain water though. I had my vent open last year in a heavy rain storm and very strong winds and you could feel a mist of water while standing under the vent. That is the time that happened and was what i considered Extreme conditions. Hope this helps.

I talked to Fantastic vent and they said that if the lid hits something it will stop, and do no harm.

My Fantastic fans came with a warning that they impede air flow on power vents.. but I still think they are great.. I can leave my vents open all year for fresh air flow..

I leave mine open a bit when it is sitting for the winter, covered in snow. Never had any problems.
