Loud range hood fan
By now, Safari owners are probably hard of hearing if they use the fan over the propane range for any period of time. Airstream chose to provide us with a cheap, one-speed (i.e. LOUD) fan. However, there is a way to cut back on the noise. Contact the range hood manufacturer, Ventline, in Bristol, IN, (219) 848-4491. For about $20, they will send you a wiring kit to convert the fan from its single speed to two speed operation. Good instructions are included to remove, re-wire and replace the rotary switch. You also will be adding a resistor into the switch circuit. The slower fan speed is substantially quieter. The trade off is that you must now use the fan in combination with the light. There will no longer be a fan-only switch setting after you modify the switch wiring.
