Not that I know of but I better check.
You need to check the floats. Flip open the cap @ top & use a skinny probe like a coat hanger to push on the white button; that is the float indicator & should be fully up but depressable like against buoyancy pressure when cell is full.

There should be 1/8-1/4" from full up position to bottoming out. If it is up, but cell not full, you have ESP (error some place) w/the float.

Mike,
Do we get trade-in value for our battery fill system if we buy AGM batteries? LOL

Hey Mike,

We met you when Bud bought the two Maxx-Air vents and the outdoor rug in August. He LOVES his vents and is especially proud of himself for installing them! He moved the fan from the kitchen into the bathrom, put the two new Maxx fans into the kitchen and shower area, and we can now pull in cool night air and exhaust warm daytime air by reversing the fan direction. These fans are also on a thermostat. Wow. David Fernandez was right that the yellow electrical wire is easily available to give power to the shower area fan. Bud said to be aware of the unexpected sensation the bathroom occupant experiences when switching on the vent! Another type of "wow" experience!

We also love the rug. Expensive but worth it.

You were great. Thanks, Mike.

Thanks for the update, Pamela! Too funny...I'll 'warn' people about the effectiveness of those fans in a bathroom...

Let me know if you guys need anything.

You and Gus drive safe, ok?

Thanks again!
