Small fans

Wondering if anyone uses a small fan to circulate the air when the AS is closed up and the AC is running.
Thanks
John

We have a small $15 fan that sits on the counter top, tilts a couple of settings, and is mostly plastic so not very heavy. We like to use it inside at night with the windows open if we are on electric.

We also take it outside and plug into an extension cord when sitting under the awning. Keeps the bugs away a bit.
It fits under my dinette when traveling.

I have one for when the air conditioner isn't on.

It's a cheap 12 volt fan that clamps on.

Also, Fantastic Fan ( and a few other companies ) make a desk top model

The Fantastic brand Endless Breeze is a great little 14" box fan. It's a 12 volt device so it will plug into your power ports.
Its quiet and very efficient.

I have two plug in AC/DC fans. One has two blades and other one. I had them both from back in my live aboard sail boating days. Use them all the time. They are both running and cycling some fresh air. Outside temps are low 90's. Inside the trailer it is about 95. Just moving some air around makes it almost bearable (sp). Parked in my drive way. If I was working out there for any length of time I would have the air conditioner also running.

Ops! Had temps backwards in previous post. 95 outside, 90 inside with air circulating by fans.

The back to school sections of WalMart, etc., are good places to find small fans.

I have one that stands or hooks on a shelf or doorway that is about 8" in diameter...small enough to stow easily, but keeps air moving when needed.

Small Fans

I bought two small slip on fans at Big Lots for $9.00 each that clip on the window trim in the bedroom on each side of the bed to help circulate the air with the AC on. They work great, are light weight and store easily in the cabinets.

Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt Hybrid Portable Fan

Thanks for the responses on the fans. They all look like they could work, however, I was looking for one that works off battery and 120 AC. It appears that the Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt Hybrid Portable Fan would meet my needs.
So my question is has anyone used one in their AS and is it noisy?

Thanks
