Should we use the interior fan for duration of winter storage or a separate “table” fan?
This depends on the area where you are storing the trailer, with high humidity areas we do suggest leaving the MaxxFan vent open to promote air flow and reduce any unwanted moisture. Leaving the fan running will draw 12v power and the batteries would need to be charged regularly to ensure they do not die while in storage. This can be done however the above is important to note.
Thanks Dustin. The trailer is stored outside in our driveway. We do have the Maxxfan vent open a bit. The trailer could be plugged in to house power to run the Maxxfan (or portable fan, which ever is best) if that is what we need to do. What we want to know is 1. Do we need to run a fan continually in the trailer during winter storage? (trailer plugged in to house power).
2. Would a small portable fan or the Maxxfan be best?
Plugging the trailer in allows the batteries to stay charged while using the MaxxFan, if you keep it plugged in you will need to monitor the battery distilled water levels to ensure they are topped up.
Storage procedures vary for each customer, for that reason I can not provide a direct answer, the storage practice will be dependant on the climate you live in. Start with having the vent open and if you notice condensation use the MaxxFan to help expel the moisture.
