I did look at your ceiling. I'm not wanting to modify any more than I absolutely have to.

I live pretty close to the LED4RV store. I've been there a few times to buy bulbs and talk to Dan about some replacement light fixtures.

If you have the same system we did, vent with lights, you might want to look at battery operated LED lights with a remote. Just did some checking and they do exist.

I tried using google to find that manufacturer and that item with no luck. Could you post the actual link. Thanks--

You will need to confirm the measurements from your old unit. I pulled mine out once I determined there was a great chance of getting a new Window Torque Center Mount Operator.

Having this shroud around the fan it does move quite a bit of air, and I did not want to change out my lights

Here is the link to the unit I needed. http://www.dkhardware.com/product-13...re-socket.html

OH and BTW. Vintage Trailers has replacement Lexan Lid for Radiused Corner Roof Vents. Little spendy But Still less expensive than a decent fan replacement not to mention the afterthought lighting issue.

One can significantly increase the life span of the original plastic lid by sanding and painting it. Mine shows no further weathering in the three years since I did it. You lose a little natural light, but not much. And many have a skylight adjacent anyway.

Good Point. I got to looking at both of mine today and looking at how little light I think they will let in even with new ones, I would do just fine with a coat of Silver Spray paint. That would save me 150.00.

Exactly what I did.

A tip. Start with coarse sand paper. You'll be amazed at how white the plastic was. About an hour to take it off, sand it, paint it. Less than $5. And I think the silver finish looks better than the original white. Priceless.

Dwight,
Your solution is the best I've seen so far. It looks good!
Where did you find those light fixtures. Those are exactly what I have.
