I love mine. Great idea. Easy install that allows you to vent while raining

We put the FF ultra breeze in smoke color on both of our fans. Dealer remarked on how easy they were to install over the existing FF vs. the Max Air cover.

I first installed them on my Alfa, I had a wet load of snow smash my vent cover over the bathroom. So loaded with snow there was a snow melt shower over the toilet.
I have then installed on my AS too.

I don't think I could handle the aesthetics of these vent covers. When the time comes I think I'll replace the Fantastic fans with a MaxxAir duluxe model vent.

The manual operation knob may be on the motor.
You may have to push or pull to turn the knob manually.

What are the chances! As I read this thread, I decide that I will install a Maxx Air vent cover over the FF. I do the research and see the pricing. etc. on EBay and Camping World etc. Before I actually order the covers, I take a ride through the Campground at Sunshine Key FL at the FL Rally and what do I see but a yard sale here! My wife says LOOK, a Maxx Air vent cover. new, cheap. Can't wait to install when we return home! Looks like an easy install, viewing one of the videos in this thread!
Bill and Janice, We're lovin' it! (Airstreaming)

I installed the regular MaxAir over our vents. Airflow was greatly reduced!! Considering changing to MaxAir II or the FF covers.
