Search for fan
Hi. Hoping someone can help me identify this part.

This is a small add-on fan that appears to be standard for this 5th wheel.

The issue is, the boss would like for me to modify the ceiling vent in the master bedroom and add a fan exactly like this.

The trick is, the ceiling vent is already set up to accept the bolt on fan and its accompanying switch.

My searches have turned up no clues.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I've added a fan in two units in the crank up vent in bedroom. You should or I did have 12volt wires in the ceiling to power the fan. I have installed two fantastic fans. You can get them from eBay or Camping World. These are a big upgrade from the cheap ones that come standard in the bathrooms. On eBay they run from $113.00-300+. Depending if you get the rain sensors and remote control ones. The one I installed were the cheaper ones without all the remote stuff.

Re: Search for fan
I was hoping to get away on the cheap. But I find myself leaning towards the route you took, that being the 113.00 ebay route.

Thank you for the advice!

With your hint, I found what I believe to be OEM : Hengs 71112-????. I'll put the decision to the boss/comptroller/wife.

Thank you again for your help.

The Fantastic fan will be much quieter for the bedroom, plus it will have multiple speeds.

Fantastic Fans are an awesome upgrade that is really easy to do if you already have power to the vent.

Ordered the Fant-tastic 1200 off ebay this morning.
dog-legging the power off a nearby wall-switched light. Havent checked yet to see if there is other unswitched power close by, but we'll check at installation.

Thank you, folks, for your invaluable input.

Once you pull the cover down from the vent there should be 12 volt wires nearby in the ceiling.

Also you will find if you ever have trouble with your fantastic fan they have excellent customer service...In my old camper I had a problem with the fan called customer service and they stayed on the phone with me for about 15 minutes and helped me trouble shoot the problem and sent me the switch that had malfunctioned...Great company...:D
