Upgrade your old, inefficient powered vent easily without replacing the entire vent or disturbing the rooftop seal.
Just replace the existing screen and small 12-volt fan with the Vortex fan kit to turn your roof vent into a powerful ventilation system. This kit upgrades your present powered roof vents into a powerful high velocity air movement system in just minutes. The Vortex I is a single speed fan.

Installation is easy with only a Phillips head screwdriver! Just take out the current screen, garnish and motor and replace it with the Vortex system. Non-powered vents can be converted with additional wiring.


  • Over 300% more air movement than standard small vent fans
  • Quiet operation
  • Easy installation with only a screwdriver
  • Requires no tampering with the rooftop vent seal
  • Universal fit for use with Ventline, Jensen and Elixir powered vents

Installs very easily but mine had no instructions inside the box as the back instructions stated it should. The vent gear did not line up and needed to be moved - instructions said to read instructions inside on how to do that - well there weren't any and I searched and searched the web to no avail. I think I figured it out, I have a screw left over so who knows. Fan switch is mounted opposite the original so the wires are pulled pretty tight. It does definitley move air but is not quiet at all. We will try for awhile and then decide whether to put the original back in or not. I may add a pot to it so I can vary the speed.

Good investment... but MaxxAir affects performance as with all fans

To begin installed in a 2000 Cardinal fifth wheel I have been talking about adding Fantastic fans in all vents for 3 years. Installed my first Vortex, I say first because I am buying 2 more. To set the stage I have MaxxAir vent covers on all vents so be warned that this will affect overall performance, as they do with all fans including Fantastic Fans. Does it work, yes. Is it quiet, quieter than the cheap standard bath fans of a few years ago, yes but not as quiet as a Fantastic Fan but close. Is it easy to install? I installed over bed where there was no fan before so I was converting a non powered vent to a powered vent. Perfect for conversions. You do not have to do anything on the roof, everything is from inside. That is best part besides being easy. If you have a light next to your vent, most RV's do, drop light tap into 12v dc wiring and now you have the required wiring for the fan. I had to snake wires only about 8-12 inches, not hard, small hands would make it easier, but mine are big but still not hard. The wife liked it enough to suggest that I buy 2 more so I am ordering now. The other reviewer was correct that there are no instructions other than what is on the box, contrary to the instruction on the box. The provided instructions are basic but useful. Luckily my crank lined up so no issues. I rated 4 stars because I would have liked it to have been a little quieter and it was missing instructions and a screw.We all have extra screws so no biggie. Since it was not perfect I only gave a 4. I definitely suggest that you look at this for $59.95 - vs- $200.00. If the folks at Fantastic Fan are smart they will look at doing this with their product and cash in on the ease and cost. If you are good with electricity you can install a DPDT switch and reverse the fan direction for pulling in air as well as exhausting air, making the value even higher Highly recommend product.

Simple Sweet Easy to Do

Who needs instructions when you have common sense. It took longer to get the tools together than it do to install the fan. They could have placed the wires on the other side but my leads were long enough to reach. Now they need to put a pull chain for the fan w/auto open on the lid. Well worth the money.
