Have any of you lubricated the 12 volt ceiling fan in your RV? If so, where do I squirt the lubricant?

Funny you should ask. A few nights ago our ceiling fan started chirping so I pulled it down, tore it apart and lubed the bearing. It did no good at all. I've contacted Crossroads and a new fan is on the way.
Sounds like they may be starting to have a supplier problem, our Cruiser is a 2010 also.

Today I sprayed some WD-40 on the fan bearings. The chirping is gone.

I hope your experience is better than mine. When I oiled my fan bearing the squeak went away but unfortunately it came back.

I too had mine to start squeaking on our last trip tree weeks ago. A couple of shots of WD-40 and the squeak was gone. I also have a 2010 model. Next trip is on Labor Day weekend and I'll be sure to listen closely.
