$100 extra or $125 extra for a remote seems like one place we could save a few $

does anyone know the model # of the stock fan, currently?

thanks.

Do any of the Maxx fan options have the rain cover or are they all just the basic fan, some with a remote, with the lid that opens?

The MaxxFan cover is a rain cover, it can be operated in the rain, not to be confused with the other brands that may need a rain cover.

Jim - good news and thanks for clearing that up. If I had not installed a MaxxAir II vent cover over the Fantastic fan on my current trailer the vent would have been useless in the rain.

The lid of the Deluxe models (which are the ones used by Escape, even as standard equipment) do have integral folding rain covers; there are lesser models of the same MaxxFan brand which do not have this feature.

Thanks. Good to know.

I am in the early stages of considerig options for our future Escape and was confused by seeing a Maxxfan ad last night for a (apparently) lesser model. Installing a vent cover is not a big deal but so much better not to have to do so.

Question

so then I guess the 'stock' Maxx Fan that ETI currently uses is the 5100 - so white, and no remote - correct?

we dont need the remote, for our 21' (we can easily reach)

so the only thing that makes me think about spending the $125 CAD for the "7500k" would be the smoke (translucent) cover, so blue sky would (sort of) be visible.

is the blue sky view out the small opening worth having? I know it is subjective.

(edit)

I just found a post, here, from 2012, that indicates that a replacement smoke lid is fairly inexpensive......

does anyone here happen to know how fiddly it is to swap out a Maxx Fan lid?


here is the info I found:

The price of the MaxxFan Deluxe Smoke Lid Assembly is as follows:

(1) 05-30520 $29.47
(1) Shipping to 17403 ZIP code $17.47

Sales tax will also be charged on this item.

If you wish to order the Smoke Lid please call Customer Service at 800.780.9893 x23 with a VISA or MasterCard for payment.
We will require a shipping address and serial number of the MaxxFan to ensure we ship the correct replacement lid.

You can always look out a window, or go outside.

The stock fan is the 5100
The same fan with a smoke cover and without the remote is the 6200 but I don't think ETI offers it. It would be worth dropping them a email.

Or alternatively, if you have a good medical plan, when you get home after a trip, just have your chiropractor fix the sore neck you got from looking out the Max-fan opening.
