Maxxfan

So I ordered a 26BH. It only has one roof vent which is located in the bathroom. Is it worth upgrading the one fan to a Maxxfan or just put a vent cover on it? If I had two vents then I'd put two Maxxfans in there without question, but with just one it doesn't seem worth the trouble. What say you?

Ha. I've been wondering the same thing. Following this thread for advice.

My initial thought is since we have some boondocking planned, more airflow can't hurt.

But with just one vent? I think I'll just open the windows.

If you open a window and use the maxxfan it works great to cool it down. Much better than just open window and no fan

I figured it would work like the exhaust fan in my home. Open the windows, turn on the exhaust fan, and it sucks the cool air in through the windows.

So the one vent in the bathroom will provide enough draw to make the Maxxfan worth it? I wish I had two vents.

Cool Exhaust Fan(s)

My 23RBM has only one exhaust fan and it too is located on the bathroom. I wonder if it is feasible and/or possible to add a second exhaust fan in the living area. Has anyone out there done this?

I would do it all over again given the choice. One (three) of the best mods I've done.
