The FanTastic Ceiling Fan Vent is the perfect solution to removing stale, stuffy air from your RV while it draws in fresh, clean air in just seconds! This versatile three-speed, reversible 12-volt fan fits standard 14" x 14" openings and uses 3 amps on high.
We had a Fan-tastic Vent installed in our class C when we purchased it new in 1993. We use the vent all the time, often in lieu o...f the air conditioner. It is very quiet, very efficient and uses little power. After about seven years of use, the switch broke. We called Fan-tastic vent and they sent us a new switch without charging us a cent, even for shipping. We are replacing the other two vents in our motor home with Fan-tastic vents this spring.
I can see why they call this fan "Fan-Tastic" because that's just what it is! We installed one in our previous motorhome and now ...have to purchase another one for the new motorhome we just bought. Works for days witout any draw on the battery and is so much more quieter than air conditioning.
Just spent 10 days in 100+ degree heat in Colorado. The A/C was on during the day, if we were in the camper, and the FantasticFan... was on at night when the temp was in the 60's. This fan created a nice breeze in our 23' TT, and it exhausted all hot air right away. We let it run all night on 1, and it cooled us perfectly.
It is quieter, more powerful, and superior to the silly little bath fan in most RV's. I bought it on the road, in Denver, installed it in 15 minutes, and am very happy with the results. I only wish that they included some silicone with the fan....this would have saved me a trip back to Camping World (which was fun, but time-consuming).
I put off buying one for a long time because of the price. I finally broke down and got one, only to discover that it is worth ev...ery penny! We mounted it over the dinette so that the air can be blown down onto the table. Most of the time it cools almost as well as A/C but with very little noise. We dry camp but with this fan we are able to leave it on exhaust during the day to keep the heat from building up. A great little fan and easily worth the cost!

We had one of these fans in the galley of our 5 year old 30' motorhome. It did such a wonderful job I'm installing 2 (galley &...; shower) in our new 36' motorhome. We live in the cool damp climate of the Pacific NW (known locally as the "Incessant Naggy Drizzle State") where window condensation and mildew is a problem. Operating the Fan-Tastic Fan on low at night eliminated window condensation completely and helped keep mildew at bay... even during winter. The slight amount of extra propane the furnace used with the fan running was no big deal. The coach was always dry, warm and never developed that dreaded musty smell. When traveling in hotter climes it kept the coach interior quite cool and minimized the use of the A/C unit. Easy to install and cheap to operate... what's not to like?
We purchased one for the bedroom which is a front bedroom in a 28 foot Aljo pull trailer. It works great and really cuts down on ...the amount of A/C time. It worked so well that I purchased a second one and replaced the small fan in the rear bathroom with the fan-tastic fan. I use one for intake and the second one for exaust and it really creates a breeze through the trailer. I wouldn't be without a fan-tastic fan and I highly recommend it to anyone. This one is a five star winner!
This Fan is the greatest! So quite you wonder if you have it on. Lots of air flow. I got one when my center vent gave up the ghost.... Loved it so much I got another one the same week for the bathroom. I only have two vents and can’t hear them even when they’re both on at the same time. But I can tell they are drawing air. In or out these things work great. Ya Baby!
I bought 3 of these fans and originally was going to have camping world install them. After opening the box. it looked easy to do... myself. Had no problem installing. The hardest part is is wiring to a 12v electrical. If one is already there for a previous fan, you have it made. Otherwise you'll have to tap into a light fixture or anything 12 v. Also I advise you pre drill holes before using the screws to tighten. On older motorhomes the wood becomes so dry and hard that you cant get the screws to go in. These fans run great. Put out some major air in no time at all

I purchase one of these from Camping World last year to replace the old small fan which is often standard in the bathroom of trail...ers, etc… so the wiring was already there. The installation was quite straight forward, only minor adjustments needed to be made for the fit. The screw holes though were not in the same plave as the old one but hey a small but drill and fill in the old holes, drop it in, connect the wires and do the sealer on the outside. I am very happy with it. I also bought the vent mesh screen accessory from Camping World to give the fan a sort of extra filtration. I am thinking about putting in another one in my trailer, it will be the third vent fan that I put in my unit, they are great.
The fan worked well and was easy to install but It quit working after one year of light use.
I installed it in the bathroom and I... think the problem is moisture. It is often dripping water from condensation and when the outside humiidty is is high it quits working only to run again after a few dry days. In the cold of winter I don't use it too much but the last few times I have tried it, I couldn't get it to turn on.
When winter is over I am going to try to find what is wrong. I suspect a switch. Toggling the in/out switch sometimes makes it work.
Too bad I am not in a dry climate this winter, I was in San Diego last winter when I bought it.
I bought two of these vent fans from camping world and installed
them this weekend in my motorhome.Easy swap out installation.Th...ey
work better than my ceiling fans in my house.Really quiet and cool
down the rv alot.Left them on all night on just 12 volt power and my
battery gauge barely moved down.Should have put them in years ago.
We bought 2 powered fan vents one was another cheaper brand .. Wish we bought 2 of the Fan-Tastic. This is the best - quiet motor,... well constructed, smoke vent cover that lasts, includes all mounting screws, reversing fan, shuts off when closed... and this is just the basic model. Spend the extra $ on this and you will be happy. Remember that it takes effort to install so why cheap out on this.
I thought everyone might like to see a long-term review on this item. We first started using Fan-Tastic Vents in 1993 when we pur...chased a new class C motorhome. If you are not familiar with their operation, these vents are so quiet and move so much air, they really live up to their name. After more than 100K miles and eight years (well after the warranty) the switch on the fan broke. I fully expected to buy a new switch, but Fan-Tastic Vent sent me a new switch at no charge. I will never buy any other brand of vent. That motorhome is still in the family and the vent still works like the
day we got it over 17 years later. Our current motorhome is a Class A Country Coach with two Fan-Tastic vents with thermostats and rain sensors - both work flawlessly. This is a great company with great customer service. These vents will last longer than most people own their
RVs. Highly recommended.
I have an '04 Chalet Arrowhead A-frame pop up camper. The original Fan-tastic vents are mounted on the top, backwards, into the w...ind. When the camper is set up, it is plain to see it is the only way it could be mounted, not taking anything away from Chalet, they are fantastic campers and very well built. BUT the dome on top flopped when going down the road. I called the Fan-tastic vent company and.... you can not believe the FANTASTIC customer support on a fan in a camper seven years old. They have since redesigned the domes for the Chalet's and sent me new dome and locking mechanism to mount in my existing vent, (UPS, no charge)not only that they sent a
white dome and reluctantly , I called the person that sent the white dome and said my Chalet had smoked clear domes and he said NOT a problem and sent another dome immediately in smoke (UPS, no charge) . I did tell him you guys are really fan-tastic and he said we are an american company and are proud of what we sell and if anyone has a problem we will fix it. You can't beat that for customer service. Furthermore, I have just purchased a new toy hauler from Coachmen and the power vent over the bath in it is a SOB (Some Other Brand) , It will be replaced with a Fan-tastic Vent fan.
I installed the fan and it is working great. It is quiet and moves a lot of air.
The only down side was the intstructions don'...t mention that the inside trim plate should
be installed prior to tighting up all the mounting screws on top. In my case I had to loosen
the screws to fit the trim plate in because for some reason with the screws in place and
tightened the opening for the trim plate was too small.
Have not purchased one recently but mine came with my 2001
Mirage 5th wheel. It is a 3 speed with thermostat. I
recently began h...aving some issues with it running properly.
Then it completely stopped working. I looked on their
website for some parts info and such. Saw the number listed
for assistance and made the call. I cannot tell you how
polite and patient the gentleman was that assisted me
through many different calls to try to solve the problem.
Being totally inexperienced with electrical issues he guided
me through various power checks and such. Bottom line is he
has to send me a whole new screen assembly that contains the
various switches, at no cost. Not only is it a great vent
fan when working the after sale assistance is remarkable.
Get one, you'll be glad you did.
I purchased this for the bath room to replace the broken factory fan/vent cover. It is a fair amount of work to replace a vent, so... I suggest anyone not willing to put 3 hours into it to
have it professionally installed. Vent and cover are well made and the fan moves a lot of air... it moves so much air that it creates a breeze into any open window. I only purchased the exhaust version with variable control due to the cost of the reversing unit... which does not make a lot of sense when it is directly over the shower. As for the fit, that is where I had a fair amount of trouble. The fan is thicker than the factory unit so it
hung down below the ceiling and I had to add a wood spacer to get the factory garnish to fit again. There are different sizes and you can get other size garnish from the factory. Too bad I did not know that before I went to all the work. Despite my lack of knowledge,
the project was completed and looks factory. I have used the fan quite a bit and sometime the fan requires a push to get it started. I'm not sure if that is due to an electrical problem or if it is the fan. I gave it a 4 because of the lack of information on the box for fitting it to the right ceiling thickness and for the fairly high cost of the unit. Overall,
very satisfied and how well it moves the air.
I already had two wireless fan tastic ceiling fans installed in my RV so I was familiar with the quality of the product. The one f...an that I did not upgrade at the time of coach purchase was the second bathroom ceiling fan. Immediately after purhase I wish I had upgraded it as it
was really noisy. I was concerned with the ease of installation. When I got the fan I read the instructions which were pretty straight forward. I took the old fan out without any problem and inserted the new fan tastic which fit great. I had to trim the collar off a little bit but that was no problem. I connected the wires and the fan started right up. After sealing it
and tightening all of the screws everything was great. It took about 1 1/2 hours to do the whole job. I have not experienced any leaking and the fan is quiet. I highly recommend the fan tastic to replace any noisly or unworking fan.
This is a good buy for the price. The only negative is this one is not remote controlled. Same quiet running, same excellent quali...ty...Just have to turn it on manually. The same fan with remote is excellent too!
I have not had the chance to use this fan camping, but if it works as well as the other two
fans in the camper, (which I know it... will) we will be very well pleased with it. And it was at
a very good price, if I recall, with the sale price, cheaper than the first two we installed.
Also, very pleased with Camping World.
I replaced the fan in my Road-Trek 210 with this fan using the MicroSealant install kit
catalog #77864 and it is very easy to in...stall. I get more air flow through out the entire
camper now. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is replacing a vent or adding a
Installation was fairly easy except for the fact that I didn't figure out where the seal was
until after I had already put on a ...lot of sealant. Nothing in the parts breakdown indicating
that there was a seal included. Works very well now that's finished.
I added two of these fans to my travel trailer. They fit directly into the opening and the wiring
was simple. The interior trim ...piece was a little wider than I needed because it fits a variety of
trailers. I simply put into the opening and measured the distance from the trim edge to the
ceiling and cut that much off. Finished project looks like they were installed from the factory.
The fans work and look great.
No, you will need to go to an RV dealer and order an OEM model Fan-Tastic vent that can be hooked up to a wall thermostat. All of the models we sell are Retail versions and are unable to connect to a wall thermostat.

If your current vent were to be completely removed, the rough opening the vent was installed to will likely be 14"x14". This fan vent is designed to fit an opening of 14"x14".

Can I buy now, have it installed later ?

I have a trailer on order...expect to take possession in a few weeks. They do/ will not install this item. I would like to take advantage of the sale price IF possible.
When measuring a typical RV roof vent including the mounting flange, you will likely end up with dimensions like 16" to 17". While the rough opening the vent is installed in, is 14"x14". The only way to confirm 100% is to remove the interior garnish of your vent so the rough opening can be measured. Probability of fit for this vent on your Jayco is very high if the factory vent is not a skylight or escape hatch model.

What is the vent model number?

the description say it include the reverse function then I guess this is the 1250 model.
Speed 1 draws 1.86 amps, speed 2 draws 2.29 amps, and speed 3 draws 3.00 amps.

The manufacturer number you have online is CW4000R.
The picture online shows a smoked dome color.
I was wondering if the manufacturer number indicates Clear (C) and White (W) for this particular item.
I wanted to be sure of the product color before ordering.
Thank you in advance.
The side seen from inside the RV is white.
