I just looked at the specs of the Maxxfan and found that it only has 3 speeds. I'd prefer continuously variable speeds, which is a favorite feature of the Shurflo.

Hi Mike & Rosemary-you moved! (Coming to Lake San Antonio Rally?)

Thanks for info on Maxxfan, will look into that for bedroom fan, the remote would be a plus.
Anyone ever change/modify cooktop fan-that one is the loudest of all???

Leslie,

Yes, we sold our stationary home on July 20th and are now living in the Airstream full-time. We'll start the construction process in September when we get to Arizona. We should be able to get free for the Lake San Antonio rally and then continue at a leisurely pace down the coast to San Diego. It will be months before our new home is finished so there's plenty of time to hang around.

If you want all the bells and whistles, I'd encourage you to look at the Shurflo Platinum Series. I wasn't impressed with the specs of the Maxxfan and it is certainly more expensive than the Shurflo.

When we get to Boston, I'm going to assign my father the task of doing something about the stove fan. At a minimum, we expect to make it a variable speed unit.

See you on the road,

Thanks, will look into that fan for the bedroom for sure. Let me know what you come up with on the cooktop fan.

Please keep in touch, especially before you head down here-there are some nice places and we'd love to catch up with you guys.

Old thread on vent fan noise

Here is an old thread on vent fan noise that may have a solution for you. Bathroom and stove vents are discussed.

Not to hijack but..

I was at the mothership about a month ago, and they wanted over $500 to install a second fan - saying it was two hours of labor. Did anyone "do it yourself" and if so do you have pictures? JohnHD saved me $200 with his "how to winterize" and I'd greatly appreciate the chance to decide whether this project is a no-brainer/no-brauner or whether it would make more sense for ME to pay someone else to do it for me.

I'm also willing to consider brands other than OEM.

Paula,

When I pulled my dead vent in the rear of the CCD to replace it with a MaxxFan, the entire process was about an hour. It's not hard to do as the vent openings are all cut to the 14" X 14" standard (or should be).

Was that $500 including the cost of the fan?
