Back in the day my old TTs’ roof vents: hand crank open/close & push the on/off button… no maintenance and worked every time. Easy-Peasy.
My last two TT’s: automatic roof vents with remote controls. After 3 yrs in the current TT two vents are belly-up. I’m not handy so I hired a local traveling RV repairman who came out, took them apart, and found two dead motors that need to be replaced…parts and labor well over $200.
I installed a Fantastic Fan with a wired remote. The remote was mounted next to the over-cab bed of our Class C so nobody had to get out of bed to change anything. The Fantastic Fan also had a moisture sensor so we could leave it open when we left for the day and we didn't have to worry about rain. We came back to the RV many times to find the vent closed and turned off and we didn't know that it had rained, but after asking the neighbors, they said that it did.

My Grandfather replaced his 1950 Ford with a new '63 Fairlane. I was with them when a Uncle was showing off his new '69 Caddy, and all it's features. His judgement? Over time, we abbreviated as "Too many FREDs"
Yea, but now you can sit in the plush recliner, hit the remote and if something breaks...all you have to say to your phone is.."Hey google (or Siri) call a repair guy to fix (name of part)" No hunting down the 100 page catalog, find the pic of it and then go to the rv place to get it.
