That one vent cover hinged the wrong way absolutely must be turned so the hinge is forward. Any kind of additional cover requires it properly oriented or the additional cover will also face the wrong way which will be a disaster.

I bought cheap Aero-Flo over-the-vent vent covers from Walmart on-line and picked up at the store for $30 each. I am told they do not hold up well to UV, but our rig is stored indoors. If stored outdoors, I would paint them to protect them from UV damage. The top half removes from the bottom half by removing a big screw, making for easy cleaning when needed.

Here is one installed on my rig. It worked great during a strong wind & rain storm, so well that I bought a second one for the bathroom vent, not yet installed. They are great for people with less money to work with. I always seek the lowest cost, yet reliable solution.

One final consideration was that I needed a cover with a height that was not higher than the a/c unit or it would interfere with the garage door opening.

Reading about the Maxaires. Do they just go over top of the old ones? The dimensions seem funny.


The 1200T did.

If you have a Fantastic Vent brand (now owned by Atwood) the domes have a life time warranty, be sure and remember that when it breaks or cracks.

Sorry I wasn't able to reply faster. Storm damage has forced us to open up and use the RV until we get power back. Another storm supposed to hit Wednesday
Anyway the front vent, the one over the cab opens to the rear. I agree with you if it opened forward it would rip off. This is going to be my first project too. Replace these flimsy vents. Let me know how you make out.

I will let you know. I come from Connecticut before living in Utah. I see you guys were really getting weather. Hope you get power back soon.
I need to study my backwards skylight. Can you just move the hinge or do you have to uproot the whole thing from the roof?
Thanks for all the good replies. Now I just need to practice posting pictures.

Ordered some maxaires today, three to be exact. Went with the middle of the road. You can buy those things from $20 to over $300 with fans and remote control
