Maxxair 7500 fan install

So, the madness is coming to a close. 15 months of mods, and this was my final big ticket project. Two Maxxair 7500 fans installed. I love the ten speeds, they’re so quite now, and the skylight look from inside with the smoke lens lid. They can reverse, and you can use one to draw air in, while the other expels it, creating a nice flow through the cabin, or any variation thereof. You can even run them closed, just to circulate the inside air. And, they work open or closed in the rain. The remote controls are nice too, one is mounted in the bedroom next to the bed, amd the other on the hallway next to all of the controls. If it weren’t for the sewer cap hitting the very edge of the front fan closed at the rear, this would have been an easy project.

A big thank you to YGOHOME K9NEG for helping me walk through my options.

I ended up with a fix, that I’m hoping will work, the lid of the fan cover just barley hit the sewer cap, so I ended up removing the OEM sewer cap, and cutting down the sewer pipe, and inserted a pipe on the inside, rather than the outside of the sewer vent pipe. That gave me just the clearance I needed without having to replace the entire cap contraption. Then, an elbow and a small extender with a screen I built into it, to keep any insects from getting in or making a nest in there.

I’m confident this will work, but the test of time will tell.

And while I was up there, I cleaned off the front cap seal, and used Flex Seal rubber roof material to which I painted over the seam. Seems as though, as the sun degrades the Dicor self leveling stuff, it brings white streaks down the front windshield and and side windows. I HATED that. Only thing that would easily remove it off of the windshield, was rubbing alcohol, and we all how hard it is to come by that stuff nowadays....

oK i'M thinking that should work ok. it just has to be a simple vent. Even if water gets into it; not a problem.

I m curious what my MaxAir is lacking with the model I purchased? I didn't have to modify the vent, but what is the difference?

I think there are several differences. One pain in the arse, is that the MAXXAIR 7500 doesn’t exactly “fit”, without modifications to the sewer vent (in our Intent model).

That said, I was willing to tackle that to gain the benefits. So this fan operates similar to the stock fan, in that it can always be open—rain or shine.

But besides that, it can operate in a fully closed position to circulate air in the cabin, again, rain or shine.

I don’t know about the CFM between the several models, so I didn’t compare that here.

Hey, anything was better than the OEM cheap fan they outfitted this with...

Last set, one flew off after only three months. Replaced it with these guys, Much more robust design. Note the spring loaded arms for better contact with the windshield. The OEM and the ones I replaced them with initially did not have that. The image on Amazon, doesn’t show the spring loaded arms, so I took a photo of them installed.

Regarding your wiper blades...I purchased these on May 7th this year and they were as pictured, single beam, not like yours, and one flew off! I found better replacements at a local RV shop, but I’d prefer to have some like yours with the extra tension. They’re so long that the passenger end doesn’t do much.

Funny, (NOT), I had another brand (single beam) fly off too.

Here’s the direct link to the ones with the tension springs.

I made a mistake--The Trico ones are the ones that flew off. I have corrected the link above.

These are the right ones...

ClearPlus 77 Series HD Windshield Wiper Blade - Frame Style - 32" - Qty 1

etrailer sells the ones I bought that are spring loaded...

Thanks Wyatt. I need new blades also. Mine didn't fly off, but the blade wipers had too much sun.
