The roof-mounted FanTastic serves as an efficient exhaust fan, drawing fresh air into the trailer through windows and door, and pulling out interior air with cooking smoke or natural heat buildup.
Jacks comment reminded me of something we discovered using our Fantastic Fan awhile ago. When you're cooking something like bacon or other smelly stuff, switch the fan to "IN" instead of "OUT" (exhaust). By pressurizing your trailer and opening only the window nearest the stove, (we have one right over ours) you shove the smell out quickly instead of sucking it throughout the trailer. Makes quite a difference.

Sorry. Now back to your regular program ...

I'm pondering the big investment of 13 bucks at Wally's for a battery/12v fan. It doesn't come with the 12v plug or the 110 to 12 adapter (or the batteries ). I'm sure I already have both around here somewhere.

If I break my piggy bank and buy it I'll let you know how it works.

Christi, I would think for the 110 to 12v it would be no problem. WW has adapters in their electronics department. For the 12v only I'm going to probably make one, a "cigerette" lighter adapter set up. You can probably buy them too, maybe at Radio Shack? At this point it's all just ideas in my head.

Lizbeth, look at this: 25 ft. 12 volt extension cord

This is just the first site that came up when I googled for them. I think mine came from Camping World (not sure). But, yeah, you can buy them ready made ...

Mary, the fan has a small 12v jack that has to be adapted to. So it would need the male "lighter" end with the little plug on the other.

That extension cord you posted is neat! I've never seen one.

This may be a dumb question but where do you plug the Endless Breeze fan in inside your camper? I'm thinking of getting one since I don't have the correct size vent hole in the roof for a roof fan.

The Breeze Fan has a 12V male plug that fits into the ports in some trailers. Some trailers have a regular household type electric plug and others have the 12V receptacle, some have both and some have no plugin capability at all. Your trailer may not be wired for the fan.

... but outlets can always be added, if you're up to running wires, finding a suitable circuit (or adding one at the distribution panel), and mounting the outlet in a cabinet or on a wall. Lots of people have done this; my Boler has no built-in 12V outlets, and I'll probably get around to adding some this year.

Start a debate: ask what kind of outlet is best...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I suspect you knew I would pipe in here: Speakon connectors (panel mount and line mount). Push in, twist slightly, click in, and a sleeve automatically locks it in place. To remove: pull sleeve out slightly, twist left and pull. Lots easier to do than say. Secure, positive, high quality, easy to wire up, cheap, and taste good too.

When your cooking bacon who wants to get rid of the smell?? thats what I go camping for.

We take a 14" fan with us but it has nothing to do with inside the camper, we use it while sitting outside in buggie season, with the wind blowing they aren't quite as bad

The vent hole can be modified to accomodate a ceiling vent fan if that's what you really want. People add them aftermarket all the time.

Mary probably has the bigger escape hatch sized hole? Cutting another hole is no big deal (at least to me). Measure about a million times, cut, all is good.
