Maxxair exhaust fans that reverse direction

The Maxxair fans that are installed in my coach ceiling are exhaust only, but Maxxair makes fans that reverse to also bring in air - has anyone upgraded them? I wonder if it will help much cooling the coach on warm days

We have maxxair fans if you run them on exhaust and open just one window close to the fan it will draw in quite a bit of outside air. The trick is open only 1 window.

What Larry said.

I have a reversible fantastic vent fan, and only use it in exhaust.

I crack open a window in the rear or a roof vent and it pulls the air in.

I would try this first before spending the money to replace the fan.

I've got two of the Maxxair deluxe fans in my camper. I can put one on intake and the other on exhaust and change out the air in my camper in about a minute. Of course, this only helps if the outside air is cooler than inside the camper. The remote makes it easier to adjust the fan speed etc over the bed. I don't have to climb up on the bed to make adjustments. You can also operate the fans when it's raining and leave the vents open during travel to help keep the camper cooler. They are kind of expensive ($300.00) but a nice improvement.
