Heng's Vortec II in existing vent

I'm not sure if its been done before into the existing vent. It is an inexpensive fan so I thought I would give it a try. I trimmed all the vertical sides off the Vortec II and a little trimming of the plastic to fit under the existing frame.

Not sure of the power draw or any benefit over the existing fan. But by feel, it is moving more air.

A side interest. The crank handles for the roof cover. Mine failed a few years back and I sent a picture to Jackson Center and they told me Airstream never used them that I had installed it.

Did you install yours or is JC just full of it?

I had to rebuild mine.

I'm not the original owner, 2 before me. All three roof vents have the same crank but I cant say for certain.

Those are the same cranks I have in my '77. I would wager that they are stock.

Yes they used them for maybe 20+ years. My comment was just to calibrate the lack of knowledge currently at Jackson Center.

They're also the same on my 77 Argosy. I gave my spare plastic handle to a 60's Airstream owner with an earlier vent with the metal handle missing and it fit that vent too.
