Thanks everyone. Got it all sorted out and installed. A 1 1/4 " shim on the outside of the fan/vent will allow the plastic trim to sit flush with the ceiling. Looks very neat and tidy. Now i dont have that annoying chain hitting me in the face .
The 4 holes in the knob trick worked fine. I did decide to cut i bigger hole in the floor just because i feel it will add good ventilation and will pull cool air from under the RV. The hole will fit a 1 gallon ice cream bucket. I can remove this bucket at will.

I'm always very happy to come up with something that is dual purpose but I must say you've got me beat by a country mile!!

1) drain water
2) prevent wet floor syndrome
3) provide good ventilation
4) pull cool air from under RV
5) make ice cream

'I cant exchange the fan for the low profile because i ordered the fan from the US(Thanks Donna D) solely because Canada wanted to RAPE me of my money. I could pay $400 and get it here or pay $169 and get it there. Hmmmm. Which one to choose.'

Oh, so good to hear from someone else in Canada who is tired of the pricing on RV products!!! I was faced with the same issues here. $400 for a fan??? I bought one off eBay for $155 + $24 duty (4000R) new from a RV dealer in Tennessee. (Oddly, I received the same crummy attitude from them as I get up here.) Much cheaper than any dealers I called here in Ontario.
