Over a year ago I completed installing a roof vent with solar
powered fan in the roof/ceiling of my fiberglass truck camper shell.My experience may be of interest and use to some FRV users, so I am posting here. I have attached a description of how I did it.
cell charges a small battery
, and it is the battery
that runs the fan. So, fan can be used day or night.
I am very pleased with the installation and with the product. It helps remove moisture to reduce inside condensation in rainy and/or cold conditions, but it does not eliminate condensation entirely. With a window cracked open to allow air inflow, it will exhaust some heat, but not much. It comes with two fan blades, and I have only used the exhaust blade, and never the intake fan blade.It runs very quietly, and is not a very strong fan. It was designed to ventilate boat cabins, especially during storage.
If any one wants to try it, I will sell you the hole saw and mandrel for 1/2 price (see Page 1 of attachment), plus shipping. Just Private Message me via FRV. Any questions? Post them here so others can benefit.
There's extensive details, plus references via hyperlinks, in the attached PDFs. I had to break the PDF "How I did it" into 10 smaller files, due to the limitations of the FRV tool for uploading.
