Video Transcript for Review of Maxxair RV Vents and Fans - Replacement Lift Arm - MA10-20222KS

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at Today we're taking a look at the replacement lift arm for the MaxxFan roof vents. Now this is going to be the arm that obviously lifts and lowers your vent fan for your camper or trailer. This just attaches to the operator mechanism to turn and lift that up at increments and then hold it there, and also again, let it back down. So this is going to fit several different fans, including the MaxxFan, the MaxxFan mini, the MaxxFan plus, and the MaxxFan deluxe.

For all those part numbers, they are listed on the product page here so you can find the exact part number to match with your fan.The lift operator mechanisms, which are just a little piece that has a screw that attaches either to the motor or to the handle to actually operate that up and down, those are available separately. There's two different ones that this works with part numbers MA10-20281K-1AF. And also MA10-20281K-3CF. Both sold separately again, Those are going to attach onto this smaller end here, and it has that hexagonal shape to operate that up and down and gets you back enjoying the fresh air or closing up your vent as necessary.

But that's going to do it for our look at the replacement lift arm for the MaxxFan roof vents..

Replacement Lift Arm for MaxxFan Roof Vents - MA10-20222KS

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (44 Customer Reviews)

Replaces the lift arm for your MaxxFan RV roof vent with fan. Lift operator mechanism (MA10-20281K-1AF or MA10-20281K-3CF) and lifter arm bushings (MA10-20287) are sold separately.


We received our order a day earlier than expected, that’s awesome! Parts were easy to find on your site, that’s a big plus for me. We will go to for our next part.


Drive shaft fit perfectly. Arms and bushings did not fit factory bracket openings for arms. Had to widen brackets to fit arm attach points and bushings.


I have a MaXXfan 6200K. Before ordering, I contacted the manufacturer and etrailer with the model # and S/N # for my fan. Both assured me this part would fit my fan. After receiving the part, I find it does NOT fit my fan. In particular, the 'nubs' on the 2 arms are too large, the hex shaft does not slide into the gear box, and the hex shaft is too long. So now I need to make several modifications to get this part to fit my fan. This ordeal is completely unacceptable.

I am sorry that this item is not a fit for your application. I have sent this information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you in a possible return. However, if you have made any modifications or installed the item, we will not be able to issue a return.


The product arrived in good shape in a timely manner. The only issue I had was with the diameter of the "nubs" that are in contact with the lid of my Maxxfan and do the actual lifiting of the lid. They were too big to fit into the channels that recieve them on the lid of my fan unit. I had to grind a couple of mm of metal away with a Dremel tool to reduce their diameter. Once done, the product functioned perfectly.



After a year it still works as it should.

Inequitable return policy! I purchase this product for about $25 + $5 shipping but did not need part after all. Attempted return of item and was told return shipping would be $18+. I asked why almost 4 times the return postage they responded that was cost to get to me also, but the company paid the difference - THAT MEANS THE $25 ITEM WAS SOLD FOR SEVEN ($7) NET.

Then I try to write a review on the unjust treatment and find these guidelines:

BUT, there are many other sites where customer review can be written.

NO MORE purchase from etrailer and nothing but bad review at every opportunity.


etrailer rocks!
Megan is on the ball,
Refreshing to speak with a pro with RV knowledge!


These were easy replacements for the missing lift arm on my MaxxAir RV Fan.


It took awhile but parts Made it. It been a strange time for getting replacement parts, lost of delays on everything.
Greg from etrailer never gave up, kept me informed on the orders progress. When the back ordered part arrive at etrailer he kept me informed on its shipping progress all the way to the mail box.
Thanks Greg.


Perfect fit.


Simple install and direct replacement for the maxxair fan on my 2018 Solitude GK-R.


Part arrived quickly, and fit perfect. This armature requires a bushing like the same two that fit on the ends. (3) bushings. My bad for not looking closer. The drive side fits in a hexagonal slot while the pivot side just turns freely. Very happy with purchase.


eTrailer is great at communicating and shipping. The price is good and the company is excellent. Will shop and order again as needed.


Great replacement parts for my rv. Good quality and fit perfectly. Would recommend to any one!!


Lift arm arrived quickly, and worked perfectly. Question and answers really helped me repair the fan right the first time.


The part I needed, but sold the coach



Lift arm was a direct replacement and worked fine.


Exact replacement, fit perfectly. Got my order sooner then the projected ETA, which made me a hero to my customer!


have not installed it yet......looks fi ne


I was able to find the right part easily. Price and delivery were excellent.


great to deal with AND speedy delivery too


Shipped quickly, arrived fast, as advertised, fit perfect.


Appears to be made of better (maleable) metal than the original part on the fan. Fit perfectly and took less than 2 minutes to install.


Perfect fit and works well


Delivered in timely manner! Product appears as advertised. It is installed in RV, solved the issue.
Thank You!


Works great!

  • Troubleshooting A MaxxAir MaxxFan 4500 Model Lid That Will Not Open
    If the knob is turning but you're getting no lift with your vent lid and you're able to simply lift it with a stick then the gear inside of your lift operator is most likely chewed up and in need of replacement. The correct replacement for a 4500 model MaxxAir MaxxFan is the Replacement Operator Mechanism for MaxxAir MaxxFan Plus or MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vents # MA10-20281K-1AF. The operator lift will require you to get up on the roof and hold the lid up to access it but is super simple...

  • Replacement Operator Mechanism for MaxxAir MaxxFan Deluxe with Square Drive
    It sounds like you have an older model of the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent # MA00-07000K. Repair parts for these older models with a square drive have been discontinued. The Replacement Operator Mechanism # MA10-20281K-1AF will not work with your older lifter arm. I do have a solution for you though. You will need to replace both the Operator Mechanism with Item # MA10-20281K-1AF and the Lift Arm with Item # MA10-20222KS. Check out the vent assembly diagram on page 4 of the Repair Parts List...

  • Recommended Replacement Manual Lift Operator For A MaxxFan 5100
    To replace the manual lift operator on your MaxxFan Delux 5100 series, you will need the # MA10-20281K-3CF. This will be a direct replacement and will get you back up and running in no time. I will also mention that sometimes the actual lift arm can also get stripped out, so you may also need the # MA10-20222KS, which is also a direct replacement. This is less likely to be an issue, but it never hurts to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

  • Replacement Lifting Mechanism for MaxxAir 7000K Roof Vent Fan
    It sounds like you could be referring to either Replacement Operator Mechanism part # MA10-20281K-1AF or Replacement Lift Arm part # MA10-20222KS which are both fits for a MaxxAir 7000K Roof Vent Fan. If you need a different part let me know but these are all that's available for the lifting mechanisms aside from the Replacement Lift Motor part # MA10-20270. If you're looking for a less complicated replacement that would be the MaxxAir MaxxFan Mini Roof Vent part # MA00-04401M which is...

  • Troubleshooting a Maxxfan 4700K Malfunctioning Under Shore Power
    The battery will be charged off of the inverter so it makes no sense that your Maxxfan 4700K is operating correctly while only on battery power and not plugged in. Since you have already replaced your circuit board I recommend checking your wiring connections. If you have a wall mounted controller this is most likely malfunctioning and causing your issues. The problem could also be in your inverter. We do offer the Replacement Lift Arm for MaxxFan Roof Vents item # MA10-20222KS to fix...

  • Maxx Air Fan Lid Unable to Fully Open
    It sounds like the lift arms aren't able to keep the lid up to the fan's fully-opened height. There are a few things that may cause this.

    I took a look at your MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # MA00-05100K, and yes some play in your vent lid is completely normal. Since you are in an area with relatively high winds like you mention, some play in your lid is expected.
