Review of MaxxAir RV Vents and Fans MA00A04401K


Today we're going to be taking a look at the MaxxAir MaxxFan. This fan is going to draw out stale, smokey or hot air from your RV. If you'd like to use this as a ceiling fan, you can close the vent lid and the motor will continue to run and circulate air within the RV cabin. It's going to feature a four-speed design. Right now I have it in the fully-open position. With this installed in the fully-open position, it's going to extend above the roof by about 12-1/4 inches.

If we move it to the fully-retracted or the fully-closed position . It's just got a manual nob right here so I'm rotating that. We're going to move it all the way to a closed position. With it in a fully-closed position, it's only going to extend above the roof by about 4-1/4 inches. I'm going to flip this over so we can see these components right here. You're going to have the manual nob.

Right here, you're going to have your on and off keypad. That's also going to be a four-speed design that's going to allow you to get the fan speed you desire. Now the fan is going to have a diameter of 12 inches and it's going to feature a 10-blade design. It does comes with the roof flange or the interior garnish or trim piece. That is included.

It's going to feature that easy-to-us keypad to control the on and off functions of the fan as well as, again, to adjust between the speeds. Now a couple of thing about the manual pull nob, which is right here. It does have a locked and unlocked position so when it's pushed in, it's locked. When you're ready to open the vent lid, you just pull that out and then it's unlocked. Then you can just rotate it clockwise or counter-clockwise to open or close the lid.

When you're done with it, whether it's open or closed, just push that back in to lock it in place. It's also going to come with an insect screen. That's right there. That's going to keep out unwanted items. That can be removed for easy cleaning. These tabs right here that just keep it in place, they rotate and then you can simply remove that. Located right here on the same point on the other side as well, we're going to have the waterproof molded mounting tabs. That's going to allow for fast and tool-free installation of a MaxxAir FanMate vent cover. That item is sold separately. The lid is smoke-colored and it has a translucent design to let through some light. Another neat thing I want to point out is right here. I need to open it back up, but I just want to point out that on the underside of the lid, it's like a dual brace design. It's got two lifting arms. What that does is that provides sturdy support for the lid when it's open. That's going to help it withstand high winds without fluttering and it can remain fully open while you're driving. That's the dual arm brace right here. It gives the unit a very strong and stable feel and overall just increases the strength, durability and stability of the unit. There is also going to be a rubber seal that goes around the opening that's going to keep dirt and moisture out. This is going to install into the standard RV roof opening, the 14 inches by 14 inches. It's designed for a maximum roof thickness of anywhere from 2 inches to 6-1/2 inches. It does comes with the necessary hardware to get it fully installed and it's going to have two wire connectors. On this unit, there's going to be a white wire and a black wire. Your white wire is going to be for ground and the black wire is going to be for power. You'll need to get that connected to a minimum 12-volt DC, 5 amp service. It comes with those butt connectors right there to easily get your wires connected. Again, it's going to come with all your mounting hardware. You're going to get the screws needed to get it fully installed. Overall, it's a really nice design. All the holes are there. They're pre-drilled. On the flange right here, they don't actually pre-drill the holes. What they do is the put divots in here so that's like a pilot start. That way, you can put the hardware in there and it just indicates where those holes are. The last thing I want to mention is the measurement we have from outside edge to outside edge. If we do that real quick, going across the front, that's going to give us a measurement of about 18-1/8 inch. Front to back, that's going to measure right around 16-1/2 inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the MaxxAir MaxxFan.
