Fan in Belly pan

Has anybody tried to increase the air movement in the Belly Pan area?

Might try using the "fart Fan" and redirect it to push air into the belly pan area. Place the fan on a switch to turn on when it rains out.

Is this a crazy idea? I would think that it would increase dry time and help prevent moisture build up in the pan.

Let me hear it fellow streamers

Don't the modern trailers blow air through the underbelly via the heater? Or, do they only blow air around the gray water tank?

I always assumed that just by running the heater on fan only you could circulate air in the underbelly. Or, run the heater and really dry it out.

Seems like that would make sense...but who knows.

Mine does not. It uses 12 volt DC heat strips to warm the tanks. No air flow outside of the main compartment unless I open cabinet doors, etc.

My 1979 has a duct that blows into the freshwater tank compartment. This area has an opening to to grey tank, but none to the rest of the belly.

Hopefully the dry time with some sort of a fan would decrease the dry time and prevent moisture build up. Have not heard any conversations about those issues so far.
