Aero-Flow Vent Covers
I spent a good portion of the afternoon installing Aero-Flow vent covers on my two Fantastic Fans. The covers have louvers on both sides as well as the rear and shouldn't choke the fans appreciably. They are not at all bulky and look quite nice on the trailer. They open easily for cleaning the dome.
Fantastic says that we can drive with the lids full open and I have done that for the last 12,000 miles (2 cats in trailer), but I still had qualms about the wind from passing 18-wheelers. I especially worried about the rear lid that is in the disturbed air from the AC. hence the vent covers.
I'm not fond of working on the roof at the best and the combination of the skylight and the TV antenns made the front fan miserable to work on. To make things worse, we had a sudden hard shower with me on the roof and my tools all spread out. I put the vent lid over the tools and got the heck down when I heard thunder in the distance. Fortunately, the storm blew past quickly.
I now have a brand new AC/heat pump as a result of the reversal valve sticking in heat pump mode. I hope this one lasts longer than the first (1 year).
