Silver is different.

I like you batteries, Mike.
And what is a rounded on your AC cover?

It's the original one that used to reside on a tripod where the rear solar panels are now. He mounted on top of A/C w/o the tripod.

Yes it can be flipped 180 deg very easily by removing four screws that hold the core unit to the mounting frame that is attached to the vans roof. I had to flip the MaxxFan to make room for the solar panels in front of the A/C unit. Only limitation is I don't leave it open when driving. I newer left it open anyway since it puts a lot of strain on the mechanism.

Right on 73shark - it's a Winegard omni directional antenna that they don't make any longer. I think the replacement is a Roadstar model on newer Interstates.

I moved the antenna after I saw Lew Faber do it to make room for more solar behind the A/C unit. There are other solutions using a smaller antenna, but I wanted to work with what I had and it works very well.

Hi, deionized water does work. This is what was used at one of the Ford dealers that I worked at. In Southern California the Sun could dry your car faster than a chamois or towel leaving water spots that are very difficult to remove. Sometimes the water spots can't be removed. The lot men could go down the line and wash every car on the lot, one right after the next, and not worry about damaged paint jobs. I would love to have one, but for the cost, I just learned to wash when the weather was just right. In the morning before full Sun or in the evening as the Sun is nearly setting. And dry them fast.

Yes there are two screws in metal holders on each side keep the fan unit. Simple to remove and insert back when putting more black silicone around the unit to patch leaking on a new vehicle haha ))) But it is probably to the AI FLAWS thread
