Maxx fan

The 17 foot escape comes with a Maxx fan roof vent. Possible options include a maxx fan upgrade 7000 K or maxx fan upgrade 7500K (smoke grey) both with remote. What are the differences?

You stated them. Standard is manual and white. 7000 series has a remote and is white and the 7500 is smoke. The remote on the 7000 series means you have a power lift and close. There are no additional features and in 17 the controls are always close by on the vent. Remote is nice, however, if you don't want to get out of bed to adjust the speed or open or close the vent.

All I would add is that while power opening seems like a extravagance, and the manual opening knob is easy for most to reach (especially in the 17', with its lower ceiling height), if any of the users of the trailer have physical difficulty reaching over their heads then power opening/closing would be a valuable feature.

It is? I'm 5'7" and have zero problems. Is it because the one in Ten Forward is located in a different place because I don't have A/C? Hummmm.

Correct, those with a/c have the MaxFan vent located forward, almost over the steps, Donna can you open that vent easily since yours in the rear?

I thought the upgrades both offered an auto thermostat feature where it will try to modulate fan speed to keep in a temperature.

True? False?

I mean .... Other than "smoke" to let in a tiny bit more light
And the ability to power remote open and close....

Why bother?

All the fans have thermostat control standard and upgrade which is all we wanted so didn't look at the upgraded fan because we didn't need a remote.
