Fan-Tastic Fan for $10!!!!

Hey guys,
Just wanted to let you know that I picked up a (used) Fan-Tastic fan from one of the RV shops I frequent for $10. Now I get to cut a hole in my roof to get it installed ahead of our Memorial Day trip to the woods. I have the perfect spot where the manufacturer put a subwoofer in the ceiling. I'll just remove the tiny speaker box that's up there and it's in the PERFECT spot-dead center of the "cargo" area.

BTW, they sure are proud of their vent covers, aren't they? $30 for a replacement!!!!

PS. I will add some pics of the install to this thread so that others can see what it takes.

That's a really good deal! They work great to help keep the air circulating in the camper.

No, I didn't know that. I would assume that doesn't cover the fan cover, though. In any case, it didn't come with a cover, so I would likely be buying one anyway.

Yeah, it's wiring for the subwoofer and goes to the AV cabinet, which has a 12 volt supply. It's probably 14 gauge cabling, so I would imagine it would be adequate for the fan. The fan wiring looks to be 16 or 18 gauge.

He'll probably just use a spade bit.

Yep. I would assume the vent lid isn't covered, but we've had plenty of trailers we've bought and had to get new blades, motors, and switches for. All free.

I'm going to head out here in just a few minutes to get a new cover for it and then swing by the trailer yard and bring it home so I can get to work. That's great news about the lifetime warranty. Thanks for mentioning it.

Jarrod, I'm sure whatever I use will be disappointing compared to using a chainsaw.
