RE: MaxxAir II Vent Covers - Installation

Ahh...deltabravo- used your video as my guide to do my MaxxFan install back in Jan. Very nicely done, and helped tremendously. Not sure why I waited so long to do the replacement of the OEM fan. that think is a pos. MaxxFan is wonderful.

RE: Rear view camera

Update on the Type S Took the rig out down to the Texas Coast this past week, and used the camera for the first time. Previously had said I thought I needed to velcro the bottom of the camera to the trailer, but- not necessary. Just needed to tighten the nuts all the way on the plate, and it was fine. Camera worked fine. Biggest benefit is seeing who's behind you before you change lanes. Didn't really use it for backing up. I trust my side mirrors and me poking my head out the window more than looking at a camera. Just a matter of me getting used to the camera view and what I'm really looking at I think, but even then...may still prefer not using it when backing. If anything, I may use it as another data point when backing, along with mirrors and "head poking".

RE: Rear view camera

Wife bought me a Type S for father's day. Went out last weekend to the storage lot to see if it would work. Here's my thoughts: o Was a little concerned about how it would fasten, but that was fine. 2 screws holding the plate line up with the Type S mounting holes. However...I have that stupid combo light/plate holder that most have. The one with the plastic mounting tabs that always break. One has already broken, so I have a metal angle bracket in it's place. That side holds well. The other side, the plastic tab cracked, so I siliconed the crack pretty well, and it's been holding. Where this becomes an issue is- the bottom of the Type S is a little heavy, so there seemed to be a bit of sway (was a windy day when I was testing this out). My concern is- with that sway back and forth, it'll put a fair amount of stress on the plastic mounting tab. Thinking about getting velcro fasteners for the bottom of the license plate/Type S to hold it to the camper. o On the box, it says the signal has a max distance of, I believe, 30-33ft. I have a 27 ft camper, towing with an Expedition, which is about 12-13 ft. Was worried I'd be at the max range of the signal, but- it came through fine to the front seat. Picture was pretty good. Now...haven't road tested this yet. That will be in a few weeks, but at least....trying it out at the storage facility seemed fine. Just need to see if the velcro solution will be viable.
