Can Fan-Tastic Vent Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan be Installed on 1-7/8" Thick Trailer Roof


My trailer roof is barely 1 and 7/8 in. thick. Will the Dometic Fan-tastic fan work with this thin a roof. The short screws are three in thick.

Unless you have some support beams for the Fan-Tastic Vent Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan # FV801208, like you can see in the attached video on a trailer, it will be best to add some plywood like you see in the attached video of the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # MA00-06200K on a 2018 Nissan NV 2500 van.

We recommend using the installation kit # Roof Vent Installation Kit # 344270KITW for vent installations which comes with #8 x 3/4" screws which are quite a bit shorter than 3". Since each application is different though you may need to use longer screws.
