Before you order the Fantastic Fan, take a close look at the new MaxxFan. I installed one about six weeks ago and love it! The MaxxFan can be left open virtually all the time. The clever shrouded design keeps out the rain and also allows for driving in a vent-open position. We chose it over the popular Fantastic Vent because we wanted the ability to circulate air in our 21 footer regardless of weather. Great for pet owners who would like to camp without AC hookup. We found the unit to cost a little more than the Fantastic with rain sensor. The benefits for us made it a great choice!

Another option that you might have in Florida is to check out the Florida State WBCCI Rally. Fantastic Vent factory representatives are often at the larger WBCCI rallys. My understanding is that they are usually at the Florida State WBCCI Rally. The factory representatives have installed both of the Fantastic Vents on my Overlander as well as the one on my Minuet (the Minuet only had one roof vent assembly from the factory). In my case, the installations were handled at the International Rally (Dayton, OH for the Overlander and Lansing, MI for the Minuet).

I am an enthusiastic owner of Fantastic Vents -- the automatic rain sensor has never failed me, and the thermostatic control was greatly appreciated during this summer's excursion to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

mine doesnt turn off

i can switch it on but in order to stop the motor running i have to open the electrics and switch it with a screwdriver, admittedly I have not bothered to turn it on for a few years - it may have self repaired. But I will try calling them and seeing if it is something that can be easily fixed. I had forgotten about it until i saw this thread.

Well...I just ordered the 6000 from Adohen for $218.00.I think it will be worth every penny spent.More than likely after i set this one in I will probably get another one unless this one works just as good by itself.Thanks all for the help.
Now...On to the hunt for the electric jack.

Devoman,

I would probably put in the front that way you can put on outflow when you are sleeping and it will pull air across you and it can help pull cooking odors out. When you are sitting in the front you can put it on inflow and have a ceiling fan of sorts. JMHO

While I agree that the front is good, Devo, I'll be honest with you: You're going to buy the second. You will, they're that good and that cool. We only have one because the back vent is all original and we don't sleep under it. But if I was in your situation, with your coach, I wouldn't even think twice. Enjoy the fan, you're going to love it!

John

I just came from the RV dealership to get some sealer for the fan before it comes in the mail.Here is what i got.
Dyco C-10 Flow Seal self leveling caulk.
Butyl tape.
Would these be just as good to seal the fantastic fan on the roof?The instructions for the caulk said that it is used on RV roofs.
Just need some advise before I start doing something wrong.I can take some pics and post it if needed.

I forget what Airstream uses, I think it's Silkaflex, but thats what I'd use. Not sure if yours is a silicone type caulk, but silicone isn't recommeded.

Devoman.
The Dyco should work it is a hypalon rubber self leveling caulk. I am not so sure if that isn't what AS is using on their vents right now...it sure looks like it on the newer units. Just make sure the surfaces are very clean or it will not stick properly. It is apparently the industry standard for installing roof penetrations.

Sealing

I went ahead and purchased some Sikaflex and some Walbernize. When using this product do i need to do anything else while polishing the Airstream?
