My bathroom fan is on a wall switch; this turns the fan on and off, but you still need to open the vent manually (too high for wife to do).

Is there a fan/vent unit available that turns on the fan, and opens the vent when powered on, and then closes the vent when powered off. There are covers that can be installed to allow the vent to stay open; I'm not a fan of them.,

Thanks,
Doug

Doug, one thing that came to mind is fabbing up some kind of handle/extension that would fit over the vent knob. [emoticon]

We had a MaxxFan 1200T on our MH. We traded it for a new MH, I went to get a new MaxxFan 1200T to put on our MH and found they are no longer made. Anyone know of a used one available?
Sure would like one.

I think Fantastic Fan has models that do that.

Yes and even better is the Fantastic Fan with the remote - its super fast to open and close Model 7350 Roof Vent

Maxxfan and Fantastic Vent fan both do what you want but are expensive. A notched piece of PVC pipe might make a usable extension.
