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..

Shipped quickly and got my MaxxAir Fan working properly again. Install was pretty easy, Just need a phillips screwdriver and some patience. Took me a few tries to get the range of motion properly set. Hopefully the replacement lasts longer than the original lasted (18 months).


Comments
The regulator is still working great, I ordered an second one to have on hand as a spare. MaxxAir was no help with warranty, but I got what I needed from etrailer.com.

The Maxxair fan is a sore spot in our Sun Ray 149 travel trailer. The circuit board failed when practically new and we replaced that. Then the operating mechanism broke into several pieces. There were no falling limbs, shooting stars or any other external impacts involved. I could not get it from Maxxair but etrailer shipped it to me quickly, while we were on the road, with no problems in transit. Installation went well. Then, during my third episode of dismantling this troublesome fan to get at a problem, I noticed oil had leaked from the control mechanism, onto the manual knob below. The replacement mechanism continues to work well, even while we are on the road 4 months each year. I am giving the deal 4 stars for the excellent relations I have had with etrailer.com, and omitting the fourth star because this fan and it's replacement parts seem to be much too flimsy.


Comments
AOK, Thank you, etrailer!

This product was much better than the original one. It was easy to install. Heavier metal than the original and they used bolts to hold it together. Great product.

Replacement operator mechanism for MaxxAir Fan is a perfect fit, easy to install and works like a champ.

Exceptional customer service. While my part was delayed by the manufacturer, the etrailer team reached out to me several times to keep me informed of the status and estimated delivery date. In the end, the part arrived much sooner than expected. I can’t think of a time when I’ve received this kind of service from another retailer. Great job. This wasn’t my first purchase from etrailer and it will not be my last.

Product was just what I needed. Stacey was great to work with placing order. Arrived in a timely manner and installed easy with the included directions. Pictures attached is the old mechanism.

The part was exactly what I needed. etrailer shipped in a very timely manner. The directions (Maxxair) were confusing— pictures were not too helpful (although they looked like they would be). Tried calling manufacturer only to get a recording to leave a message and someone would call back within one business day. Not helpful when you’re on the camper roof! However, we eventually figured it out. Folks at e-trailer were extremely helpful in identifying what we needed.

I have three Maxxair units and two of the factor gearboxes have broken. This is a drop in replacement which I hope is more robust. This time I ordered an extra because it takes a little time to get them.

I purchased this item as a replacement for my rv bathroom fan(to lift and close the cover) and it fit perfectly. Install was fairly easy.

My transaction with etrailer on ordering this part was made so much easier, for having had the opportunity to have worked with Ms. Ana S. From the very beginning I was told that the replacement part for my MaxxAir Fan was out of stock and possibly unavailable until May of 2022. I stated I would still need the part to repair a perfectly good fan that had been working fine. Ana not only helped me get the order placed, but has kept me updated often so as I wouldn’t think they forgot about me. This order began in early November/2021 and today I received the part, checked and it will be an exact replacement. I cannot say enough about both etrailer and mostly Ana’s kind and supportive help through this process. My wife and I love this fan in our RV and will once again be able to use it after I replace the part. In these trying times it has become so hard to try and cope with just getting through your day, well thankfully there are people like Ana to help us along. Thank you etrailer and Ana for your wonderful service, greatly appreciated!

Greg's service on this order was fantastic! This part, which was on national backorder, was needed to replace a defective OEM version in my realitively new motorhome. Order was shipped and received promptly. Order many items from etrailer, will continue to use as a high quality supplier of RV parts and accessaries.



- MA10-20281K-1AF

Part was out of stock when I ordered. Etrailer did an excellent job of keeping me informed on the order status and delivered the part before the projected date. Much better quality part than the OE version too!

Adam E provided fantastic. Our automatic fan is an essential tool in van, especially during summer. Adam found the part and got it to us in record time. It was a perfect replacement.


Comments
Still working perfectly after one year! Its always better to replace parts than to try to remove and replace a through-roof fan.

This is THE part that fails repeatedly on the MAXXAIR fans and NOBODY has stock. The folks at etrailer said they would order one, it would take a few months. They did, and it did. Thank you.

The lower connector did not fit onto the shaft down in the fan mechanism so I took out the old screw mechanism and put it in the new part. The grooves would not line up properly on the new connector shaft.


Comments
I reached out to the manufacturer who had one suggestion to press that coupler on to the lift motor first and then the operator mechanism.

Finally received the fan gear mechanism after waiting well over a month. Better late than never, I guess. Would be helpful to have installation instructions - your link is dead.


Comments
Instructions for replacement parts are difficult and we do not typically supply them. I will contact the manufacturer and email you the set they have.

This was a part that was in short supply and was not expensive ($37) but the etrailer team kept me up to date on its status. There is no update process if you order parts directly from MaxxFan. Thus the service from etrailer was a pleasant surprise and most welcomed! I am sold on your service and from now on will be ordering all my needed parts from you. Your support team is the best! Part is installed and working.

I’m so happy that etrailer carried the Lift mechanism part needed for my MaxFan 7000K, to replace the old part that was malfunctioning to lift the cover. With the instructions provided along with the part, I was able to have a trouble-free installation. The part, itself, looks pretty solid.


Comments
It worked absolutely fine thru the day I sold my rig, June 30, 2021

When the gear assy on my Maxxair fan fell apart, Camping World told me I would need to replace the whole fan for about ${XX]. etrailer had the gear assembly for about $[XX]. It even had directions with it. The quality of the replacement part was far better than the original. I replaced it in about 15 minutes and it worked fine. I highly recommend etrailer for your trailer parts.


Comments
Gear on Maxxair fan still working fan after over one year. $[XX] for part sure beat $[XX] for new fan. Thanks Etrailer.com

Product was exactly what we needed. The only issue we had was the order was in stock but you waited so long to ship it.

The controller I need is no longer available, mine has the four sided hole. I have ordered a new lift arm that will fit the octagon controller, will modify it to fit/work My Maxxair was installed in 2008. I don’t want to buy a new vent. I will make it work. If I get it to work I will buy another controller because they are junk and will not last.

The new part fit perfectly. I have sold the trailer a year ago.

Perfect fit....used it several times and it seems to work fine. Hope this part holds up better than the original part....its been a year now, so we will see.
