OIC, sorry to hear that.. I am not far behind your I think, and not looking forward to it. Maybe I will upgrade to a quieter fan before then.. maybe not.

Have to talk to my family about my hearing issues! I'm sure ac would solve the issue, but I'm too cheap. Most nights up here cool down enough. What's the Maxx fan?

Looked the Maxx fan up. Nice, but I'll probably try the O2 cool first. Thanks!

Or camp on the shore of Lake Superior at Two Harbors or Grand Marais and pray for a NE wind.
Better than A/C any day.

John, if you run the fan with only one window open, usually the one you are near, you will get a nice air flow over you. If you have many windows open you will feel very little air movement.

I found the tiniest Vornado fan and it does this job really well in tandem with the indispensable Fantastical Fan that all of us should consider as standard equipment I think.

The Vornado is really small and folds up into itself for storage but like every Vornado just somehow moves a lot more air than you can imagine?

Its the one that looks like a Bullet.
It is called the "Flippi"?

No pics right now,Google it!

Also I have a few of this o2 fans and they will run for 8 hours on D cells in my experience and they can be connected to larger batteries too as they have a DC input jack.
I use them on every emergency radio deployment I am on and could not live without!
Fantastic also makes the Endless Breeze which is a standard box fan looking deal and it blows amazingly well too again like everything they sell.

We use the O2Cool fan in our Scamp 13 as well. We position one tied with zip ties to the counter support of the sink, blowing across the bed, and then the kids each have clip on fans to blow on them in the bunks. We also leave the screen door open, through the night, so that draws in a lot of cool air. Last summer we camped in eastern Nebraska, temps were 80's during the night, high humidity and we slept very cool.

(edited to add, that we have a voranado fan in our son's room at home, because his bedroom is SO HOT no matter how low we turn the AC. That is one amazing little fan! I'm very impressed with how well it cools his room down.)

You can spend a bit more $$ and replace your exhaust fan with a MaxxFan. It is also made by Fantastic, but with the added feature that it can be left open in the rain. The fan itself is shrouded. the blade tips are surrounded by a ring so it moves more air with less noise. 3 speed both in or out.
It requires a flat mounting surface. I made a wood frame to fit the curve of the roof and provide a flat place to mount the fan.

what about computer fans, quiet, low cost, low 12vdc power usage, various sizes. Some even have three speed settings or variable speed control. Guard grills are available. I used a 230mm fan in my fantastic fan when it blew a blade. It moves 160cfm at .38 amps. Also used smaller one in the bathroom vent and 2 on the stove vent. Mount one or 2 in the window frames.

thanks for straightening me out. I should have said MaxxFan by MaxxAir.
I was just on top of my Scamp, and learned how to open the lid for cleaning.
