What Big Al said. The maxxi can be left open in any rain, and thats when you need the ventilation. Just my .02. Sal.

I ordered 2 Fan-tastic fans with rain sensors. No vent covers at this time.

More roof questions...

I have a new Mach15 sitting in back of truck ready to replace the old Coleman 13.5. Is the gasket enough to seal it or should a caulking be used as well?

I am also going to paint the roof white. Many have mentioned Ceramiflex, but it is not sold in California (rolling my eyes). Home Depot has a product called Henry's 587. Has anyone used it? Any other suggestions?

Should I replace the stripped gear in the old antenna or just replace the antenna?

And while I'm up there, I'm going to just pretend the dent in the rear cap is not there (at least it can't be seen from street level).

I just installed the second MaxxFan on the Hagarstream yesterday. I put the first one in to see how I liked it. It worked great but you still need a second opening for the air to come in or go out. A few days or nights in the rain with the vents open and circulating air makes it all worthwhile. Being shut in the coach with two people and a large dog and no ventilation is not fun.

Cheers, Dan
