How do I install a Fantastic Fan?

I have a 2011 Scamp 13 with a roof top air conditioning. I want to install a Fantastic Fan behind the AC unit.


Inside I have the rear cabinet. Has anyone done this before?

Which fan do I get Hi or low profile?


Thanks


Bill

Hi BillE...Do your self a favour and Install a MaxxFan... We did. It's a much better unit IMHO. Here's some pics.

Hi: BillE... I cut 2- 3/4" plywood rings and installed them inside the fiberglass...under the liner. I worked on a sunny hot day so the glue was pliable. First ring accepts the S/S screws from the fan shroud. The next ring attaches to it to accept the trim cowl. This cowl can be cut to fit the depth required. I fished the wires to the upper kitchen cabinette for 12V power.

I took out the light over the rear table and cut the hole there and used the wiring that the light used for the fan. Make sure when you cut the rat fur you dont cut too much away - you want to make sure you have enough to fit back under the trim you use on the inside. I used a low profile fan but it still hung down into the trailer a little so I just added a wood trim piece around it on the inside to match the one on Scamps escape hatch. Not perfect as it does come down about a 1/2" inch but as it over the middle of the table so no ones is going to hit their head on it. Used Butyl tape to mount it flush on the outside.

If I was to do it again I would make sure which ever brand of fan I purchased had more than 3 speeds and that it had the auto closing feature in the event of rain.
