MAXXFAN RV Exhaust Fan Install – RV Upgrades



I show you step by step how I installed a MAXXFAN to replace the tiny and basically useless exhaust fan that came with our RV. This was a great low cost upgrade we made to our RV.

On an 80 degree summer day with the sun blasting down on our RV it will easily get over 90 degrees in our RV. The tiny factory exhaust fan was not meant to move air throughout the RV at all, so we are replacing it with a MAXXFAN by MAXXAIR to help cool us off on hot days.

    Too bad you didn't install a vent cover at the same time – they allow you to have the vent open in the rain and wind. After having them on my first RV (as well as my current one) I wouldn't be without them. They also help your max air vent cover last a lot longer since it's not being exposed to direct sunlight after a vent cover is put on.

    Did this upgrade impact affect the RV factory warranty in any way?

    My heart skipped a beat when you reconnected the leads to the battery and the wrench almost touched both terminals.

    I installed the maxxfan In my e 250…checked the 12 v voltage feed. Installed fan , hooked up , no work..I called etrailer who I purchased the fan from, they sent out a new fan .guess what, it didn't work either…I suspect it is an issue with the printed circuit board, ( maxxfan power boards do no work well with anything over 12 volts.if you have DC surges it will fry the board) I sent away for another board hopefully this one works.

    Ive thought about holes in the floor, with pvc pipe and a ball valve to close or open the draft. Much cooler under the RV then opening a window. One under or near the bed, one under the table. With windows closed, open the valve to draft in the cooler air to replace the outgoing from the roof fan.

    Ive also thought of 2 of those fans, with one in the BR. Allowing you to vent either the front or rear of the RV.

    As a general rule you don't want too strong a fan in the bathroom, because if it's running when you flush the toilet, black tank odors will be pulled up into the Rv. With enough windows open shouldn't be a real problem.

    2 things.…
    Eternabond tape is much easier to work with than dicor.
    You only have to disconnect the negative battery terminal.

    Have you already said where you have the litter tray for kitty? Great job! Could you have just used the old interior piece if you had wanted to?

    How’s the fan holding up ? Friend of mine said they rust easily.

    Thank you so much for posting this video. My husband got me a MaxxFan for Mother's Day/Birthday and we tackled the install yesterday. We watched your video a couple of times before starting, and it was SO helpful! Thanks again for taking the time to walk us all through how you did this project (and for setting realistic expectations about the effort involved).

    Great job. as for the flow, you did get the LOWER end one, right? 4 speeds??? the 10 speed does a great job but it is way Louder.

    Fewer windows open will increase the speed of the air. The best way to use it to cool the camper is to only open the windows that are on the shaded or coolest side of the camper. It will make a huge difference.

    I just paid a total with tax included, of $176 for Maxx fan exhaust fan with the aerodynamic top. It looks like the deluxe, but it's only for exhaust and is manual to open and close the vent. I'm installing it on a 97 Geo Metro hatchback RV conversion.😎 Then i plan to sell the mini camper car so I can buy a van.

    important information: For better pressure of airflow, close the windows more.
    Now imagine trying to blow out a candle with your mouth like this:😮 You get no pressure that way.
    Now try blowing out a candle with your mouth like this 😯. A smaller opening increases pressure of air flow. You just need to find the perfect ratio. Try putting toilet paper strips in front of the windows and close the windows a bit more until the breeze gets stronger to blow the paper around, flapping. The more the paper flops around, the better the flow and you'll feel the wind breeze the best.😳

    Great video buddy, just managed to order one from the US as they're rear in the UK (or ridiculously priced). Thanks for the vid I now have a much better understanding of what's in the box etc.

    We have a stock exhaust fan in the bathroom as well, and the rest of the trailer. It definitely doesn't absolutely nothing but make noise lol maybe I'll look into doing what you did here. I dont full time rv and we get just as annoyed about the moisture lol
