None in my 801200. Manual open/close three speed (converted to variable speed). Sometimes simpler is better. I decided I didn't need a remote in a 60 sq. ft. van. Black tape?

Ha! LOML cut that puny fan hole with much trepidation, but left the real work for a real WOman: 4 max-size Motion Windows.

Totally agree.. automatic open/close is kind of convenient for us and keeps us from having to climb up on the bed every time, but we could definitely get by without it.

I am going to try to cover the light.. it is strangely tucked up inside the unit, beyond the screen and fan blade!

Nothing like a remote to turn your fan on and off! A fantastic (ha ha) idea. I use mine constantly.

It's 9:30pm. I'm almost asleep. Roger snuggles into bed beside me. "Did you turn off the fan?" "Oh, I forgot." "OK." Click.

That's beside the fact that a creaky neck and bifocals make it difficult to look up at the controls.

Powering a MaxxAir 7500 fan

Anyone have an easy schematic for powering a MaxxAir 7500 fan. I am really only going to be powering it might use an inverter from time to time to power my laptop.

What type of battery?
How do you connect to alternator to keep charged?

Any help would be great. Looking to keep it super simple and cheap.

Thanks

Hmmm, does MrNomer know about this Roger bedmate?

Well you could just run a fused always hot wire from the battery or fuse box directly to the fan, with or without a switch, if you have a remote you don't need a switch. Of course you have the risk of draining your starting battery doing it this way but the fan really uses minimum power and should be good for overnight without draining it to the point of no return if you remember to start the van and wait till the battery recharges.

A better but obviously more expensive method is a second "house battery" with an isolator switch which has been covered ad infinitum here. A search should provide more info than you want to know !
