Aero-Flo vent covers

Anyone use these vent covers???? Since Stoltzfus is cleaning and working on my roof, I decided to install vent covers. (I can't handle any more beatings from Sue because I flooded the living room when it rained). Anyway, the guys at Stoltzfus recommended Aero-Flo for the low profile and ease of cleaning.............................but hey, I've got to check with you guys first. Thanks, Marshall

yes Marshall I have the aero flo covers or atleast 2 of the 3 I installed two years ago,but last spring when I went to clean out my vents one of them broke already,it was real brittle,the other two I managed to save but I know this year they will break also because they were also brittle and the little tabs that hold the top and bottom together are gonna break,the one that broke last year I replaced with a camco

I like this set up better for cleaning the vents out, it's much easier then the aero flo and no tabs to break,the camco also does not sit any higher then the aero flo covers,the reason I did not go with max airs is because they sit so high.As for how will the camco hold up well I guess time will tell.

Those look nice. I like that the grill opens for cleaning.

How do they attach to the camper? Do they have brackets similar to the max air? Or do they mount to the roof? (In otherwords, do you have to make a hole in the roof, or mount to the existing vent frame?)

Thanks,
David

David I'm assuming your reffering to the camco since you said about the grille opening to clean,yeah that is what I like about them you take out two screws and the entire grille comes out so you have easy accsess for cleaning the vents out,they mount to the vent frame just like the max airs or the aero flo's.

I would just like to add for marshall that even though the aero flo's look easy to clean they are actually a pain in the you know what to get apart and back together especially without them breaking after getting brittle.

Thanks Rich. I also like the Camco. They seem to be made a little better. To tell you the truth, I was a little bothered by the whole top lifting off on the Aero-Flo anyway. If those tabs you talk about get brittle, you could lose your top.

Just for grins.............Camco makes the Aero-Flo

Maxx Air now make a newer pivoting mount if that helps any.



Maxx Air has a 6 year warranty on them and I can tell the plastic they are made out of holes up to the sun better and is stronger and more pliable. They blend the plastic different and start with a different type.

I may look into getting the hinging kit to convert mine. They did not offer it before.

Good luck with which ever one you get.

John

that being the case I sure hope the camcos hold up better,they seem to be made out of different thicker plastic,plus no tabs to fight with.

We have vent covers of some type. I don't like them because they block my view. I like being able to open the vents all the way and see the sky.

I put the hinges onto all our MaxxAirs when I did them- the hinges screw into the existing frame, and are really easy to put on. The slidy things that clamp the vents closed do it nice and thight, and they seem to work well so far. I do miss being able to look up and see the sky, but will trade the rain protection and cover protection for that anytime.

For cleaning, the Maxxair brackets allow the top to pivot over so the top edge of the cover rests against the roof- TONS of room.

pwb01 is an unknown quantity at this point
I have a Maxx Air over the bathroom and a Maxx Air with fan over the living space vent. Each took about 30 minutes to install and another 30 minutes for the power hookup. Nothing to it and no penetration of the roof.
I recommend them, works great and no water even in a very heavy rain.
