That is very helpful, thanks. Cutting on the stream makes me nervous. But it may be the only thing to do.

Pondering Fantastic Fans

Greetings Rodney!

I had two Fantastic Vents installed in my Overlander at the WBCCI International Rally at Dayton, Ohio in 1999. If my Minuet would have had two roof vents, it too would have had two Fantastic Vents. Setting one on intake and the other on exhaust really can make the coach bearable even in a heat wave -- the days before 30-AMP service at the International rallys was the original reason that I had the vents installed. This spring, the RV technician making my pre-season reparis discovered that the operator lever and a related part were broken and that the cover was fractured where the operator attached -- a short call to the folks at Fantastic Vent and a new Vent cover, operator lever, and an improved motor were all on their way at no charge -- and this was for a vent that is approaching 10 years of age!

Both of my vents have the thermostatic control with rain-sensor, and I am thrilled with their performance. In areas where morning dampness is common, the rain sensors can be fooled into thinking it is raining resulting in periodically running through the open/close routine -- this wasn't enough to disuade me from ordering the features on the Fantastic vent for my Minuet.
