This Fan-Tastic Vent roof vent has a built-in 12V fan that uses a thermostat to help maintain an even temperature inside your RV, camper, or enclosed trailer. The fan can also be controlled manually with the built-in hand knob or with the controls on the vent housing.


Ceiling Vent and Fan with Thermostat

Air out your RV after cooking or just draw in some fresh air while you sleep. This variable-speed ceiling fan operates in 2 modes: manual and automatic. To activate the fan you can either turn the speed knob to the desired setting or you can simply activate the in/out switch, which will cause air to be pulled into your trailer or pushed out of it.


To use the fan, you must first manually open the dome by turning the hand knob. The dome must be left open while the fan is set in automatic mode.


When using the automatic mode, you can preset the fan to maintain a desired temperature inside your RV. The thermostat dial shows a range of temperature settings that are color-coded from dark blue to dark red. The fan's internal thermostat will sense the actual room temperature, and the fan will run until the preset temperature is achieved. When the temperature rises above the preset temperature, the fan will automatically kick on again. So when you go out, you don't have to waste energy by leaving the vent running at full blast just to ensure that your RV is cool when you return. And because the fan will activate anytime that the preset temperature is reached, you can set up the system to ensure that your pets remain comfortable while you're out.


To control the fan manually, turn the speed knob on the vent housing. There are 3 speeds: low, medium, and high. There is also an off position.


Installation

This vent requires a 14-1/4" x 14-1/4" opening in your trailer's roof and ceiling. To replace an old vent, install this vent into the existing opening. If your roof does not already have a vent, you will need to mark and cut an opening between roof joists to install this unit. And the 2-wire design makes it easy to have your vent hooked up and ready for use.

It's shocking to me how expensive a few pieces of cheap plastic are. It also came DOA. I used my very meager electrical skills to figure out that there was something wrong with the fuse assembly. I couldn't even get into it at first. The cap wouldn't release, and I ended up pulling the whole thing out of its mounting and ripping one of the wire connectors off its connection. I worked harder at it, and the cap came off, leaving the fuse and the metal fuse housing lodged in the tube. I ended up breaking the glass of the fuse trying to get it out. I've never seen such a simple thing work so poorly. I'm a moron when it comes to electrical stuff, but even I have easily and successfully replaced every fuse I have ever blown.

After a trip to the auto parts store, the thing is finally working and installed. I played with the fuse to see if it would come out easier the second time, and it will not. If I blow the fuse, I'm going to have to break into it - literally - to replace it.

An important note about the thermostat that no one seemed to mention in any of the reviews I read: it is very obviously aimed at a higher temperature range than I would have expected. Room temperature is deep, deep down in the blue zone of the knob. It's about 85% of the way from hot to cold. 85 degrees is about midway. I can't test how low the coldest trigger point is (it's summer when I'm writing this review), but I suspect that it is somewhere around 70. That will be fine for most people, but it not ideal for me. I tend to set the heat around 55-60, and it would have been nice if the vent could have come on at a lower temperature. Closed-up trailers sitting in the desert sun heat up quickly in the morning, especially in the spring and fall. I tend to wake up when the trailer gets too hot in the morning, not really when I'm done sleeping.

Otherwise, I would say that my experience mimics those of most other reviewers. It is way better than the complete piece of garbage that came with my cheap travel trailer. It's sort of quiet on the low setting, but nowhere as quiet as it could be if it were made from higher quality components. On high, venting out, it definitely draws in a nice breeze, especially if you only have one window open. It will definitely help when I camp in full sun without tree cover, which is mostly what I do.

I wish I could have found a better fan, with a thermostat, priced more reasonably, but I don't think it exists. So, at the end of the day, I am mostly happy with my purchase.


Comments
After a year, about the only thing that I would add to my review is that the thermostat adjuster knob is a bit more logarithmic than I expected. That is to say, the bottom end of the range is down in the mid- to low-60s Fahrenheit. So, it came as a pleasant surprise that I could set it at 65F. Once I got the fan working and installed, I have been happy with it.

Wow am I disappointed. This is the 5th Fantastic Fan I've installed, 3rd in my rv and 2 in a friend's. I installed it over the bed and the past few days are the first time I've wanted to use it. The fan squeeks so loud the I can't run it at night. I've been very pleased with the brand in the past, but this one is a permanently mounted useless vent. I will have to replace it, so I am looking for alternative brands. What changed?


Comments
You mentioned that the fan is squeaking and is not useable. I did reach out to the manufacturer for a solution and they advised that the motor will have to replaced. We do carry the replacement fan motor kit, it is part # FVK8017-00

Easy replacement of my original almost worthless exhaust only bathroom vent. Very pleased with how powerful it is for both intake and exhaust. It is much more quiet on the highest setting than the original one speed fan. Air is not reflected back into the camper since the fan takes up all the space. Great order, speedy deliver and knowledgeable efficient staff. etrailer is still nailing it. Keep it up and don't slide into the bad habits of other companies that over promise and under deliver.




by:

GREAT FAN. WE HAD A FAN-TASTIC FAN IN OUR FIFTH WHEEL TRAILER THAT LASTED 20 YEARS, THE NEW FAN CAN PULL AIR IN OUR OUT OF YOUR RV, WERE AS THE OLD ONE WOULD ONLY PULL AIR OUT OF YOUR RV. THE NEW ONE IS GREAT.




by:

This fan has a lot of power to suck out the air in the trailer compared to my old fan. The old fan covered about 1/4 of the vent. This fan 100% of the vent opening is covered by the fan blades and has drawing power to remove stale air, hot air and humidity, plus it has a temp switch.




by:

The 2250 Fantastic Fan still working great after a year!
Pretty quiet and the thermostat is a handy feature that works well.
In my application, it has a tendency to open itself while driving around unless it has been cranked down fairly hard. Driving with it open doesn't seem to be a problem other than the outside noise that comes in that way.
My application was a fiberglass raised top on a Chevy van. I had to make a wood frame as the fiberglass did not provide a flat surface to mount to. Photos below show inside frame, fan, and insulation.


Comments
my Fantastic Fan is working GREAT! We installed it in a 15 pass van converted to a camper with 24 raised top. The van is very well insulated all around with interior curtains as well. The thermostat works great still. I describe it as equivalent to being in a shaded gazebo. We are quite comfortable leaving our dog in the van for any length of time parked in full sun as long as she has appropriate water and food supply. She always seem quite fine and happy on our return. Quiet enough to leave on during hot night. Thermostat will turn it off when it cools suffeciently. Very happy with unit.

Works great. Perfect replacement for my original 15 year old fan-tastic fan




by:

On the cover, the screws connecting it to the linkage to raise & lower the cover broke off the plastic they were connected to. On our 1st trip & after maybe 3 or 4 uses this happened. I"ll be ordering a replacement cover soon. I don't know--maybe wind is responsible. Otherwise, an excellent product. And was easy to install after removing the original, cheap one.

Customer Service will contact you. The dome has a lifetime warranty.

I love my new fan! It is great for keeping fresh air circulation in my truck camper. I live in my camper full time so it is getting used regularly and I just can’t say enough good things about it. Installation was a snap. I actually did it up in the mountains. The night before, it rained hard all night and I experienced several leaks that night. Next morning I installed the new fan and of course stopped the leaks. I highly recommend it.




by:

The Fan-tastic vent roof fan arrived much sooner than expected. When I opened the box to inspect the fan every thing looked very nice. It will probably 8 weeks/ early May when the weather is nicer before I install the fan. It will be a nice improvement for the trailer.




by:

So far this fan has been an upgrade over the previous competing brand it replaced. It is quieter, if a bit less powerful. It's not my first Fan-Tastic RV van and it won't be the last.




by:

Only recommendation is to keep the sensor's push pin clean,that activates fan when opening vent. Dirt/sand will build up and prevent fan motor operating. Darn blowing sand in the deserts!




by:

Last project built. Used etrailer for almost all parts, including roof vent and so on. Friend wants one now so started another one. I will be getting all the parts from etrailer...




by:

Great service!! I had to add something to my online order and had to call eTrailer. Terri N was VERY helpful. My revised order was received 5 day’s earlier than expected.




by:

Very pleased with the fantastic fan/vent. Easy to install. Delivered on time




by:

Second one I have purchased. One for my horse trailer and one for my RV. Did not want any other gadgets to contend with, like remotes, so chose the manual lift vent fan.




by:

Easy to install and look great!




by:

As always, you have a great price and prompt service. I am replacing the fan in my bathroom. The motorhome already has one of these in the front and in the rear bedroom.... but they installed a CHEAP and noisy fan unit in the bathroom. Upon returning from the mountains, I noticed debris on the toilet. When I looked up, the cover was completely cracked. I thought that maybe I had hit a tree limb or something. I was just going to replace the cover. When I saw the poor quality of the entire fan assembly, I thought that this is the perfect time to replace the entire unit. The other two units have worked great. They draw and circulate air through the whole MH. Great products.




by:

Fast shipping. Product arrived as ordered and undamaged.




by:

This is a great, simple, fan, though not quite quiet enough for a teardrop build. Even on the lowest setting it is pretty loud and my wife declared it to be too loud for our trailer. We ended up sending this one back and spending more on the remote controlled one with something like 11 speeds. It is much, much quieter on the lowest setting and is currently on our build. I really loved the simplicity of this fan, but noise was a factor in our decision and this one is just a bit too loud.




by:

The fan blades were what I expected....had to drill shaft hole a bit bigger (0.116") and cut plastic mounting shaft shorter by 0.161", but they work perfectly now with old long motor.

Tomorrow I tackle installing the new fantastic fan.

I am very impressed with etrailer's service!! Thanks, I need as much time to get stuff done as possible!. I

We bought this a year ago and installed it in our truck camper. We primarily winter camp in high elevation snowy climates and it worked great to dump moisture out of the camper in the winter and it helps circulate air and keep things cool in the summer. Love it!




by:

GREAT! Quick service. Easy installation. Thanks for your help, again.




by:

The fan itself works really well....but they have a consistent problem. Had it with my last fan and hear other people complaining about the same issue. When you go down the road the screw that holds the crank handle vibrates loose and the crank handle and screw fall to the floor. I lost the screw on a long trip and had to stop at an rv dealer for a replacement. Sounds trivial but its a dumb little problem they need to fix. Otherwise the rating would be 5*




by:

Fan has been great and installed easily.
