I just joined the Crossroads family and plan to upgrade the sub-par fan
that is coming in on my unit. I've researched quite a bit and plan to
kill two birds with one stone and pulled the trigger on two Maxxair
Turbo/Maxx fans. It is actually a roof vent cover with the fan built in.

Anyone have experience with installing and using these fans?

Yes, I installed one in my bathroom. No problem, just tie into your electrical into the existing wiring for the current fan. I left my old fan installed and operational. Works great.

I installed a Maxx Fan Deluxe with remote a few years ago. I installed it in the bedroom to replace the factory vent. The install was pretty easy since the 12 volt power was already there. Just be sure to clean away the old sealant before installing the new fan. The remote has a digital thermometer on it and you can set the fan to kick on and off at any temp. you want. My only complaint is the loud BEEP the fan makes when you push any button on the remote. I think a peice of tape over the source of the beep will quiet it down I just haven't taken the time to try it. The fan itself operates quietly. We use the fan in reverse mode to pull air out of the trailer most of the time. Since most of our camping is in the spring and fall it helps keep the trailer cooler without running the A/C.

Had two in our former Cruiser. Work great and moves a lot of air.

Thanks for the responses,


The Maxx Fan Deluxe is nice, but I am going with the Turbo Maxx in the bedroom also, leaving the existing vent in place. If was scott is saying is the same on my new unit, the wiring "should" be there for 12 volts. We bought a 300BH with the second AC capable 50 amp upgrade, so I know there should be a 120 line there also. We'll see.

I was questioning whether to remove the existing fan in the bathroom, but BDLuke convinced me to leave and just splice into the linek.
