Additional Information
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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noisy 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value I installed this upgrade in a standard ventline non-powered roof vent in my rv bathroom. I tapped 12v and ground wires from my bathroom ceiling light. I found the installation to be simple and straight forward. I just followed the directions that came with it for my application and did not have to make any modifications. The actual installation (after running the wires from the light) took about 15 minutes. As previous reviews indicate, the fan is very powerful and somewhat noisy. If it came with a variable speed switch I would give it 5 stars. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement My main concern is that the vent this is supposed to be a direct replacement for Ventline and requires a 360 degree knurled knob for the vent open/close mechanism to attach properly. My original vent gear was keyed instead of knurled. As in it was a round shaft with a flat spot on one side. In my case, I was able to get a different vent opening mechanism from a different vent cover that did not have an original fan in it. The Vortex seems to move quite a bit of air. I put mine in the main living area and it is a bit louder than expected, but not a big deal unless trying to watch TV. Will likely install another in the garage so I can use it to cut the noise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good replacement fan I purchased this unit about 3 months ago. Installation was simple even though the gears were off at first. I realized that the gear mech was movable and once I did that it worked fine. Not as quiet as I thought it should be but it does displace a lot of air. Note: Make sure you inspect your vent cap also. My coach was less than 1 year old and right after I replaced the fan, the cap fell apart while I was cleaning the roof. Sun deterioration I guess. When I replaced the cap I also sprayed it with white paint for plastic. Has some UV properties. I would recommend this instead of disturbing the roof membrane.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing difference I had noticed moisture on the ceiling of my bathroom after showering this spring. Decided that need to be addressed. I saw an ad for the Vortex replacement fan and read the reviews of it before ordering one. What an amazing difference. So easy to put in. No more than an hour and I went slowly to make sure I did everything according to the directions. No problems. The amount of air pulled by the fan so much more than the original fan. If a window is open, you can actually see the curtains being pulled by the flow of air. Wish I'd done this sooner. Moisture problem is solved. And, I don 't find the noise lever bad at all. Of course it's a big improvement over the other fan.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Out of balance blade The Vortex vent fan upgrade is a great product and a money saver. My only complaint, as of just having installed it, is that the fan blade is so out of balance that it vibrates the whole trailer with a loud, low frequency droning noise, much more annoying than the old cheap fan that came with the trailer. So I have to solve that problem ASAP. I have just sent an email to Heng's to see if they will give me a properly balanced replacement blade under warranty. If so, then I will be 100% satisfied and will report back about it either way. If I can get a balanced blade, it should run very quietly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I purchased a new RV that was equipped with the small Ventline fan in the bathroom. It was noisy and did not exhaust the steam from the shower. My previous unit had a Fantastic fans that did a good job. I was looking for an alternative so not to disturb the original roof seal. Saw this and thought I would try it first. Installation was easy,about 20 mins. The directions were adequate but poorly printed. The fan is noisy but so was the large Fantastic fan I had before, no worse, It does exhaust the shower steam as good as the original fan in my old unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good upgrade but install modification needed I am very happy with the Vortex upgrade for quietness and improved air movement verses the OME ultra loud Ventline. I feel it is a well engineered product but I had clearance problems with the install due to a lot of excess vinyl roof material around the vent roof opening that the old Ventline was in. Not wanting to disturd the roof material, I finally cut off the 2 small tabs on all four sides of the Vortex. Putting the screw in the opposite side of the frame that the crank is on helped me get the correct alinement for the crank. Connecting the wires was a fight also, I removed screen and fanblade assembly so I could reach the wires to make a proper connection. I am embarrassed to admit the total time for install but it was over 2 hours

    Will this work for a 1995 Jayco travel trailer

    Asked by: Anonymous
    This is a universal application product. As long as your vent is a standard 14"x14" design and can access wiring for power, Yes this upgrade can be installed.

    How much sealant does it take to replace the whole vent?

    Asked by: Garth
    One tube of sealant usually works with a single 14"x14" vent. The size of the bead being laid affects yield, 1/4" may get around 24 linear feet, where 1/2" may net 6 linear feet for theoretical yield.
