Based on this thread, I think you are correct.

Nice job Fred!..and oddly enough, for some insane reason this morning, I thought about when I pushed the Big Burro up that ramp!

I liked your US map with States visited decals, if my guess is correct...

Cool Air Conditioning and a Fantastic Fan

Now I need to cut a new 14" x 14" hole to reinstall the Fantastic Fan in front of the A/C.
I measured and marked the new location. Then I drilled 3/8" holes in the corners. Used a jig saw to "connect the dots." Since the Fiber Stream is un-insulated, all I have is about 1/8" of fiberglass to cut through. From my scrap materials bin I found some leftover pieces of Trex and milled it on the table saw. I used Butyl tape to attach the Trex frame to the top of the 14" x 14" hole. A stained wood frame was Butyl taped to the underside of the hole and the two frames were drilled through the fiberglass and screwed together from the inside. I then installed the Fantastic Fan to the top of the Trex frame with more Butyl tape and screwed it down. Then I finished the job by caulking with DAP® DYNAFLEX 230® Premium Indoor/Outdoor Sealant and then reinstalled the cover over the Fantastic Fan.

The Fantastic Fan is centered in the trailer. Note the gray conduit that brings the 12 volt wires from the kitchen wall to the fan.

The Air Conditioner replaces the Fantastic Fan. The gray conduit remains and a new cord is zip-tied to anchors glued to the ceiling to bring 12 volts from the AC enclosure to the new Fantastic Fan location. 110 volts is brought from the outlet inside the top of the Pantry/Refrigerator cabinet on the other side of the AC enclosure.
