My next project, Bilge Blowers for engine comartment, starter cooling

Bilge Blowers are required and serve several purposes in the Marine Industry.

Safety is what requires the law requiring installation and usages to remove unwanted fumes ! But Cooling is as important in a closed marine engine room as under the body of an R.V. !!! Especially with Tight quarters and when in slow or stopped traffic, let alone after a long, hot day on the road. a well placed and plumbed fan running 10 to 20 minute's can cool starters and wiring along with reducing the Moisture that can be created on natural cool down periods with hot, Humid condicions promoting condisation acumulation.

We always open the boat engine compartment for an hour or so or run the bilge blowers for as much as an hour after a day on the water ! to prevent disrtibutor cap condisation and other premature longivity issues !

West Marine is a good place to Start !!! For $100. or so we can have a very nice and effective method for longer life and less maintenace cost's of our RV's and tow vehicles !!!
