Ep.3 Sprinter Van Conversion | Maxx Fan Install

Ep.3 | Maxx Fan Deluxe Install


I bought 2 x Maxx Fan’s (Deluxe Model) to install in my van. I picked these fans for a few different reasons. They can used in the open position whilst it is raining and they’re also bi-directional so they can extract or blow air down like a fan also.

They have 10 speed settings and come with a remote control (they can also be controlled on the unit itself). It draws 0.16A on low setting and 2.5A on high at 12V. The cutout hole size on was 356mm x 356mm.

I mounted one fan off centre above where the gas cooktop will be in the front of the van, and one centre in the back over where the bed will be. My reasons for having 2 fans was mainly so that if the van is completely closed up for (stealth) reasons, I can still effectively extract cooking fumes by having the rear fan sucking in air while the kitchen fan is extracting.

I bought some 10mm thick x 40mm wide putty tape on Ebay which was somebody’s old stock. I don’t think I could refer you to this exact product because they have probably sold it all by now. This tape acts as a sealant and spacer so the mounting flange can sit over the ribs on the van roof.

I used a grinder to cut the holes but I recommend using a jigsaw if you can, as this won’t leave dust size metal filings and will be easier to clean. I also used Sika Pro for the final seal around the mounting flange, and screws.
