Can The Camco RV and Enclosed Trailer Roof Vent Cover Be Installed Off-Centered


Can the MAxair vent cover be installed off-center over the fan opening? I have a 2021 Winnebago Micro Minnie 2100BH and there is an exhaust pipe located close enough to the vent fan that I would not be able to install the cover centered from front to back - only centered left to right. If the cover is installed further to the front than the back will it prohibit the factory cover from opening properly?

Installing the Camco RV and Enclosed Trailer Roof Vent Cover w/ Detachable Louvered Screen # CAM40453 a little bit off center shouldn't be a problem since the shape of the cover doesn't taper down too much on the sides. You'll still want to have the cover facing the correct direction though.

A lot of RV vent covers with this design don't allow the factory vent cover to fully open any way so you will have no issues with it not fully opening if it ends up touching the cover due to it being off center. If your MaxxAir vent is a manual open you'll just want to make sure you don't over-crank it when opening.

With you installing the cover off-center you won't be able to mount it to the frame of your MaxxAir vent and will instead need to mount it to the roof of your trailer. You'll need some screws, butyl tape, and self-leveling sealant for a water tight seal, which you can get packaged together with part # 344270KITW.
