What he said! Don't have to keep checking to see if the dicor has cracked. Eternabond and done!

I went with the Maxx Air 00-07500K MaxxFan Deluxe with Remote - Smoke from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Maxx-Air-0000...2CQZ4EHY69254C
For the following reasons:
1) Fan is reversible - run as a ceiling fan when lid is closed
2) Temperature controlled.
3) 10 speeds
4) Quiet
5) I have pets so when we are out, the fan can keep the temperature stable by cracking the farthest window and set the fan to pull air out to allow air circulation
6) Can operate it even when its raining.
7) Lid open/closes via the remote or you can open/close it manually as well.

Don't understand all the trimming. The new shroud should fit the new fan, and you should only have to trim the new shroud for length, right? Or easier to use the old shroud?

Eternabond is so good I am waiting a while to make sure my fan isn't defective before using the tape! I have only tried to remove Eternabond once before and failed miserably.

Good advice. I got the eternabond in the mail a few days ago, and opened the container. It looks like it would be a bear to take off once applied, lol.

I was hoping that the old shroud would fit as it would have saved a few step. It does not, at least with the POS that Jayco installed in the bathroom of the 2018 Greyhawk. The stock shroud is smaller so if you have the same situation that I did you will need to use the shroud provided with the fan.

Thanks. By the way, are you happy switching from your fifth wheel toy hauler and diesel to Greyhawk living?

Without dragging this too far off topic, yes we are. The toy hauler, Honda SXS and Duramax were all great. My second Duramax BTW, and I loved that truck but family camping became a major issue with 25 of us and calendars that never seemed to mesh. The prep, setup, and then take down got to be a big deal so we made a decision to downsize some. I love my Jeep Sahara almost as much as I did the Duramax We still do family camps but on a smaller scale.

To keep this on topic I had switched the fan in the bath of the toy hauler to a Fantastic with remote and added another to the vent in the bedroom later.

Thanks for that. I'm looking forward to installing the Maxx Fan with remote. The only vent in our 5'er.

air movement

Assuming I can get a fan that fits (I have the same rig as Davolson..28.5) the shroud, do you think installing it in bathroom where the existing bad fan is would pull enough hot air out of the adjoining bedroom? It would make wiring much easier if so. Otherwise I would try and install it in the bedroom vent and try to fish some wire to it. But that is a whole 'nother venture.

No doubt. It moves a lot of air especially on high. I use it to move the moist shower air out also.

I think it would...........they are really powerful and move a lot of air.

I have a Pinnacle with bath and a half. The fan in the half bath died and replaced it with the MaxxAir with the remote. Easy to do, love it and soon going to replace the one in the other bath with the same MaxxAir.

The only vent in my camper is in the bathroom where I installed my 7500. With it running on a medium speed, there is a decent amount of air movement felt in the bedroom on the other end of the trailer. On high there is quite a bit of air movement.

Well I finally was able to install the Maxx Aire fan with remote in our 355MBQS this morning. Did it early to beat the heat. Only problem I had was with the shroud trim. The new one did not fit, was about 2" too short, did not go all the way to the ceiling. I kept it as a backup in case I screwed up trimming the old one. I trimmed the old one and had to notch all four corners as each corner is "indented" about a half an inch and would not go up into the new fan. Once notched, it fit pretty good. Not perfect but better than the new shroud trim which I still don't know why it was too short. I should've taken a picture of that too. Forgot. Anyway it's done. And it's a nice fan!
