Took some time to install the Maxxair 6200 I received the other day. Very easy and simple to do, the most trouble I had was trying to remove the old caulking and mastic puddy. I had a overhead light that I just tapped into, unit works great, love the fact that I can leave it open and running under any circumstance almost.

I was wondering about installing another air vent over my bedroom area. How hard is it to install and when you cut through the roof could there be wiring or something in the way . If so how can you determin it.

Also I thought about a sky light in the bed room also has anyone done this?

This was a replacement to an existing standard vent above our bed, so electrical was available as was the hole. Making a new opening would not be a DIY without some serious investigation first to determine whats there....

I really doubt you'd want a skylight in your bedroom after you had it for a while. Skylights let in a lot of heat in the summer and they're cold in the winter. They're to bright for a bedroom plus they're just something else that can leak. Even at night you'd have light from street lights coming in if you were parked in a campground. Of course you could cover it up with some kind of foil but then if you did that you wouldn't need one in the first place.
