Non-powered vent covers

Hi,

I'm planning to put vent covers over at least some of my vent lids on our T-2553. I've looked at Maxxair and others. Maxxair has one model that has a larger louvered area and is hinged to lift for clean out. Reviews sound good.

Any thoughts from SOC members about non-powered covers?

Thanks for thoughts.

Paul

go with the model you are looking at MaxAire II - it allows you to clean the underside when it get dirty without taking off the entire vent.

Poppy & Nana,

Thanks for your comments. The Maxxiar II does seem to be the way to go.

We have the older type of Maxxiar. As I was mounting them I said, why didn't they make a hindged clip on these things... and then they did.

As far as the Maxxiar quality, it is very good in the type of plastic they use. It holds up well to the sun.

If I ever buy new ones, I would get the hinged version.

Good luck and report back how they mount etc if you get them.

John

Self cleaning vents! Yes, I like it! LOL..... I had to pull the screens out inside last year and wipe off the inside of the crank out covers and up in the Turbo Max fan.

Mine will hit 10 years old this November from birth at Sunline and they are still going strong. I do 303 UV protect them to help. I cannot say the same for all the rest of the plastic up there. I have replaced all of it already expect the 2 roof vent stack covers on the holding tanks. The Original owner did not do a lot of TLC to the camper and I think it sat almost 8 to 9 months on the dealers lot waiting for us to snatch it up. 2 1/2 years on a new camper with no TLC living outside can set the stage for a long time. Plastic and decals take a hit.

I have the hinged type now and had the older ones on my Sunline. I also have the larger Maxx Air covers for high powered fans. Every vent always had a cover for the peace of mind not worring about rain while asleep or away. Wouldn't leave home without them.

Unless the heat or air is on, the vents are always open, even in the winter for airflow.

Just ordered 3- Maxx Air II’s for my Sunny. I really like being able to open them and clean without using any tools. I am always a little weary about climbing on the rubber rood with a sharp pointy screw driver... I’ll keep you posted.

Just got three Maxx Air II's at Kelly Mobile Homes/RV at West Milton, PA. Paul, the service tech at Kelly Mobile homes installed them for me. Also did a bearing repack on the T-2553. As far as I can tell, he did a good job. Now I can have the vent lids open and still get better air flow even if it's raining.
