Video Transcript for Review of Maxxair RV Vents and Fans - Enclosed Trailer Parts - Operator Mechanism - MA10-20281K-1AF

Today we'll be taking a look at the replacement operator mechanism for the Maxxair MaxxFan Plus or MaxxFan Deluxe roof vents. This is going to be a direct replacement from Maxxair for that crucial component to actually open up your vent or fan. You can see when I turn this small portion that little hex portion turns. So that's what's going to open or close our vent and provide us with good circulation inside our RV or camper. This is a fit for the Maxxair MaxxFan Plus part number MA00-04500K or the Maxxair Deluxe MA00-070003 or MA00-0700K. That's for the powered lift roof vent.It doesn't come with any other hardware.

It just comes with the mechanism and then this small bushing to go over that portion there. It will reuse the same hardware to attach this in place. It'll get you back to working with your vent. If you need any other replacement parts for your Maxxair fan, check out etrailer.com for more replacement parts. That's going to do it for our look at the replacement operator mechanism for the Maxxair MaxxFan Plus or MaxxFan Deluxe roof vents..

Not so much about the items I have purchased, but the fabulous service during and after the sale that you get when buying from e-trailer 584831

I had to modify my MaxxAir MaxxFan slightly to make this replacement operator mechanism work. I have the older MaxxFan and this operator mechanism is all I could get as MaxxAir changed the design slightly and the older mechanism is no longer available. Once I installed the mechanism, the MaxxFan vent lid now opens and closes as it should. The old mechanism was stripped out and the vent lid would not open correctly. It would not stay open either, even if I opened the vent manually. etrailer had the part I needed and all is good. 763442

Part arrived ahead of schedule. Great follow-up by Etrailer. Attached picture is of defective part which was easily removed with manufacturer instructions which was included with new part. 551017

I am glad my fan is working again. I am surprise the original part was already broken in several pieces. With new part installed, not making loud banging noise and save my house battery from quick discharge. I have backup part for future. 584586

Still good as new

Over the top, outstanding customer service. While traveling, my power vent opening/closing mechanism failed. After contacting Kim, we weren’t sure the in-stock part was the right part. Kim contacted the manufacturer for me, confirmed it was the right one and shipped it to me express. This is clearly outstanding customer service. I’d give more than 5 stars if it would let me! Thank you! 474677

While on a camping trip one of the Maxxair fans in our RV stopped working properly. We ordered the part from etrailer so we would have it when we got home. It was the part that we needed and it arrived two days earlier then the expected delivery date. We were able to get it fixed and we are ready for our next trip. Also ordered a spare in case the other fan has the same problem. Would definitely order from etrailer again. 581631

The defective operator was in an electric operated roof vent. It would open part way then drop down and repeat several times before stopping. This was an exact replacement. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Took about about 15 minutes to replace. 576901

I had to replace this part a couple of years ago and had to order it directly from Maxxair. They sent me just the part with no documentation. Because of this I believe that I installed it improperly and caused the part to fail. etrailer included complete instructions and I feel this will be trouble free now. Shipping was quick and it was well packaged. Thank you etrailer! 494700

Easy replacement of my operator mechanism that stripped when the lid stuck closed. Came with easy to read instructions showing how to install/replace complete with photos. As MAXXAIR rep told me, hardest part of the job is going up onto and down from the unit roof.....part gets replaced from the top. HINT: If you have a helper, position them inside the unit to move the lid lift arms up and down to better enable getting all the screws out/in without interfering with the arm hardware and position the arms to re-engage the lid...will save you a couple of trips up and down the ladder. Other than that...piece of cake. 519353

Our MaxxAir Fan was skipping when opening and closing. I contacted MaxxAir Customer Service and was told I needed a new Operator Mechanism but unfortunately they were on back-order and a ship date was not available. I checked etrailer.com and they were available in stock. Quick shipping and comes with detail remove and replace instructions that made the process very easy. Thanks eTrailer. 588413

E-Trailer is now my go-to place for hard to find parts. Everybody else wanted to sell me the whole fan assembly instead of the one part I needed. Thanks! 900685

EZ Install......... I even did it from inside the Montana High Country! Fits and works perfectly. Make SURE that you follow the instructions so you don't install it 180 degrees out. LOL 898120

It has been working great. Have had no problems with the arm/ lid going up & down. First thought it was the arm but found the “teeth” were warn/broken in original mechanism. Easy to install. 884773
