MaxxAir vents covers saved our TT!

This past Saturday I received a call from the lake where we have our TT parked for the summer, saying that there was a very bad hail storm the night before and they were contacting everyone they could to come check there TT for damage. Long story short, the 2 MaxxAir vent covers that I installed the day I brought the TT home, saved us a ton of greif (and damage)! Both my brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws TTs (neither had installed, or even heard of for that matter, of some sort of vent cover) had every roof vented totalled destroyed. My brother-in-laws was not too bad...the trees in our site helped block a lot of rain, so not a whole lot of water ended up in his TT. My sister-in-laws, however, was a mess...carpet throughout was soaked...not cool at all.

The $100 or so it cost me for the two vent covers is now well worth it...and I think I know 2 people who will be installing MaxxAir vent covers and their TT very soon.

I dropped my trailer off this past Sunday at my Jayco dealer just to have three MaxxAirs installed.

You don't specifically say, but I assume your Maxx/Air covers were totally undamaged. The Maxx/Air covers were one of the first upgrades to my TT back in 2000 when I installed two of them. The rear Maxx/Air cover, over the bathroom, was replaced with in 2002 with a Turbo/Maxx fan. The fan gets a lot of use and we've never had a problem with it. I stored the replaced Maxx/Air cover in my garage as a spare in case the other one on the TT "bought the farm". It's still in the garage. Outside of losing it's lustre and Maxx/Air decals, the one on the TT shows no sign of needing replaced even though it's been up there for 13 camping seasons.

I had 3 installed before I took our tt home from the dealer. I hope we never have to test them in a hail storm but its good to know that the will hold up. I got them so we could leave the vents open while traveling and during rain storms.

Without a doubt, they are the only reason I didn't have broken vents and a very wet TT (over 3" of rain fell in a very short period of time).

Hail damage to my bathroom vent forced my install of a Maxair there. I had already replaced the one in the kitchen with a TurboMax

Love em...
