OMFG - how do you fellas put up with this stuff.
I was up and down on that roof a hundred times - no kidding!
wrong screw driver, wrong wrench. needed measuring tape then a pencil, then the a different bit.
Got the holes drilled to fit the new motor. Attached fan and reinstall the cover. Wanted to check the wires so had the 12V battery ready - and the flipping motor does not run the fan. It seemed really tight - no screws came with the fan and there was clearance inside the house so that is not the issue. I put the fan blade back in the right way had to drill the spindle hole a bit bigger for the half moon spindle.
So the profanities flew after seriously getting up there at least 10 times - okay so 100 was an exaggeration!
It was hotter than get go up there and I could have fried a couple of eggs while I was at it - with two beers and this heat I was dreading coming down each time.
So back up I went - but not before I went on line and order a WHOLE NEW fan - $56.00 and a 7 day wait which is quite a pain in the butt - as I am living in this trailer and showers fill the coach up with humidity and since my back FF is on the blitz till those parts come in too I'm really in a mess here.
So I went back up and took the fan motor out and put the lid back for a future install.
Hook the motor up inside to the 12V bat and the spindle turns fine - UG!!!! so I don't care what the issue was. I have a new one coming.
I even jerry rigged a new red lit on off switch to the pathetic screen - it was all going to work fine - and it seems nothing goes as planned. So after 3 hours of up and down heat and sips of beer I am absolutely no further ahead than I was yesterday - and have to take some parts back - think I will keep the switch might come in handy for something
Thanks for all your help though.
