MaxxAir ceiling fans

I just installed two MaxxAir fans in my 20' Flying Cloud (2016). These fans are AMAZING!

I have a solar panel on the roof and both fans operate using stored power and are SUPER QUIET. You can't hear these fans operating and they really move the air.

I LOVE MAXXAIR Fans.

I installed myself and they were very easy to install after watching YouTube videos.

I really like the maxx air deluxe I installed on my argosy. I put in two: one in front and the other in the back. Super quiet and seems to be made well. Just wish the didn't cost so much. Love the upgrade though.

The crank that raises the hood on my 7 year old Maxx Fan failed. I really like the unit. BUT,

Unlike Fantastic Fan Customer Support from Maxx Fan does not exist on a retail level. I am also unable to find a dealer to buy parts or repair the unit.

And you can keep them open in the rain. One of the best upgrades I've made.

Yes, we replaced both Fantastic Fans this spring with Maxxair Deluxe fans and had the same positive experience. Its was great to be able run one pulling air in and one pushing air out. We dry camped for 2 weeks in June and ran them all day and into the evening.

I've had Maxxair fans installed for roughly six years. I had an issue with the crank failing within a couple of months. A call to their customer support group solved my issue promptly.

Later, I had a branch land on the plastic cover damaging it as well as the crank mechanism. Those parts were quickly shipped (after purchase) and I was back to camping within two weeks. The repair was a DIY event.

Lunatic, take advantage of the links by 57Vintage or SeeMore and purchase a new gear set. My Maxxair was 6 yrs. old and I just replaced mine last month. Easy job and fairly good instructions (but you can't install with gears in the down position as instructed, because well, the top has to be up while you're working on it). Other than that, it's a very straight forward swap.

Took me about 20 minutes. However, I could have done a second one in less than half the time, once I had experience with the first one. You'll stop the rattle while driving and be glad you got your fan working again.
