I believe that the OEM vent covers are non-UV stable by design. If they were UV stablized they would sell about 1/10 as many as they sell. A milk jug left outside will outlast a new RV OEM vent cover. So yes you need the aftermarket vent covers or stock in the OEM covers.

ps: Depending on the model of Maxx Air cover placed over a high output fan vent, you may want to consider removing the screen on the Maxx to allow for adequate air flow.

Agreed! When I replaced my original vent and cover with the Fantastic Fan, the cover itself was yellow, brittle and the rubber gaskets were just about gone. This was only when the unit was one year old.

This is one area of design that I could fix by adding a single sentence to the drawings. Perhaps they are unaware that engineers with extensive experience in plastics buy their products.

Yes. Vent covers work. And, work great. Suggest installing white over bathroom and living areas. And, install black over bedroom areas. Especially if you like to sleep in (and hate morning light).
