ceiling fan

I installed this Comfort Air 14"x14" 12volt, 4amp max. ceiling fan It has a remote, automatic rain sensor, auto temp control. retail cost $395.00. I bought it for $200.00. because of the economy. I ran the wiring to the dome lighting in the rear upper cabinet. on the interior I made a spacer 1 1/2" high. I screwed the outside of the trailer thru the 1/4 " ply ceiling material with 4 stainless screws, because the contact cement was not holding the foam lining and the ply up tight to the fg roof. I used countersunk machine screws, with nuts, a washer, and lock tight. the interior spacer is 3/4" wide and it sits proud of the screw nuts. The spacer was screwed to the plywood ceiling, and then the interior bottom trim was screwed to the spacer. It is all very tight.

Later Kenny

I left the original Vent in the ceiling added a VORTEX upgrade Fan, 12 volt $42.50 from the net (1) speed but you don't have to remove any thing but the hand crank and screen-,no worries about any leaks,12 volts all ready in the ceiling.

Now you need to cover the screw heads with some caulk, other than silicone.

The screws are stainless steel and the caulking under the vent is LEXEL, got the idea to use LEXEL from a post by Norm. "We don't need no stinken" silicone. Would one still want to cover the screw heads?

Most RV dealership Shops use (Dicor) Lap sealant (flo seal) stays plyable and holds a very long time-

It will only help the situation.
