Maxxair RV Vents and Fans - Roof Vent - MA00-03812W Review


Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the MaxxFan Dome Roof Vent. This is going to have a 12 volt fan and a six inch diameter, and basically, this is just going to be a nice little exhaust fan for your bathroom or shower in your RV. It can be mounted in the roof or in a side wall, so you can either have it vertically or horizontally mounted, and it's just an easy opening vent. To open that up, you just have this little push button on the handle, push up on that, and it opens up our vent to the outside, so we can exhaust the air. Now the fan can't be reversed as far as pulling air in, it's just going to allow air to escape, so it is an exhaust only fan.There's two wires to connect to run that fan, and it comes with an extension, if our walls are thicker than an inch, so we'll have about a six inch extension here to get everything sealed up.

It also has a shield, so if we want to use this in the side wall configuration, you'll mount this so that the solid portion is at the top, and that acts as a rain and debris guard to make sure that nothing can get in there and cause any damage, but also is going to help to prevent any obstructions getting in there and causing a collision with our blades.I'm going to grab a power source and plug my fan in, so you can actually get an idea of what it sounds like, because I know that sound can sometimes be a concern for folks. So there's just again, those two wires to connect. So my ground is going to go to the white wire, power goes to black wire, turn that on, and then there's a push button to actually turn the fan on and off. So you can hear how loud that fan is. Not too loud.

This is kind of a small fan, so it shouldn't cause too much issues there, but it's pushing out a nice amount of air to help exhaust our room, and get that warm, moist air out of our RV, and keep everything a little bit cooler inside there.It does come with the hardware to get everything mounted up, and also the two butt connectors, so we can make our electrical connection for our power and ground. So all in all, a pretty nice compact exhaust fan for our RV or our camper. I'll give you some measurements to think about, to make sure that this is the right fit for you. And the fan itself inside there is going to be a six inch diameter, and that's going to be this inner portion here, the rough cutout.Its overall dimension from this outside edge to outside edge is about eight inches. From the inside portion it's about...

Or the lower portion that would be actually mounted to our roof or our side wall, that's more like nine inches wide. Whenever we have this closed down, it extends up by about three inches tall. Open it up, it's going to sit up above our surface by about three and three quarter inches, so it just moves about three quarters of an inch in travel.It does have a fuse installed, so we don't have to worry about any shorts backfeeding into our RV's electrical system. It's going to be a five amp fuse, and this does work with 12 volt power. Our extension here measures six inches long by six inches in diameter, and then the collar ring that finishes off the look inside there, outer diameter of that is about eight and a half inches.We've also got all the screws that we need to get everything in place.

Now, this kit is available in black and it's also available with an LED lighted interior ring, so if you want to get those, you can find those right here at etrailer.com, and that's again, both available in black or white, and with the LED or without the LED. So check those out if you're interested.But that's going to do it for our look at the MaxxFan Dome Roof Vent. I hope this video has been helpful in determining if this is going to be the right thing for you. Thanks for watching, and we'll see you next time.
