I like the remote! I had a short in the PCB and when I ordered a replacement board, I asked for a remote. I am not sure, but possibly the base model will work if you buy a spare remote for it. Maybe someone could confirm at one of the rallies? Mine does not have the opening motor, but the other functions work via remote.

Regards,

Matt

In the 5.0TA it might be a good idea to have the remote for shorter folks.

I would surely want that, right? if there is a void somewhere, I wanna open it up and cram something in there!

Very tall person here, I unlock my awning with my fingers. I love the remote for the MAX fan, nothing like not getting out of bed to adjust speeds, open, or close it.

The stock cover on the MaxxFan is opaque and and you can not see through it. If you want any moon/star light at night, the smoke lens will work. If you want to see if it is raining/snowing the smoke lens will work, the stock will not. Remote is nice for convenience, how many of us do not use a remote with their tv?

Methinks we have all done it a time or two.

Yes, but the windows work well for that too.
