Bath Vent Fan

Some time ago, I turned on the bath vent fan before a shower, only to have the fan blades turn into shrapnel. I have ignored the problem for a while since I have had many other things to occupy my time.

I have hated that noisy fan since new. It destroys TV when it is running. I decided to do something different.

I have a 5 1/2" square, 12v muffin fan. I can easily sand off the non-functional corners of the muffin fan to fit it inside the approximately 6" vent stack. A little foam padding glued to the flat sides of the fan will easily stop any leakage around the fan. I'll "invent" mounting parts as needed.

I have a rally coming up in a few days. On return, I'll get out the ladder and swap fans.

My fan shredded to pieces this weekend. Wasnt going to change it but what better time than now. Took it apart to realize its junk. Its a cheap replacement but would hate to replace it with the same thing. Only lasted three years and my van isnt even kept in the sun.
What did you end up doing with this? Anyone else any ideas?

When mine gives out the next time, I'm getting one of these.

I installed the Maxxfan Dome. Very nice fan. Very quiet and does not roll the TV when on. It includes a pushbutton light that is nice to have in my GT with touch-panel controls.
