Well...I just ordered the 6000 from Adohen for $218.00.I think it will be worth every penny spent.More than likely after i set this one in I will probably get another one unless this one works just as good by itself.Thanks all for the help.
Now...On to the hunt for the electric jack.

Devoman,

I would probably put in the front that way you can put on outflow when you are sleeping and it will pull air across you and it can help pull cooking odors out. When you are sitting in the front you can put it on inflow and have a ceiling fan of sorts. JMHO

While I agree that the front is good, Devo, I'll be honest with you: You're going to buy the second. You will, they're that good and that cool. We only have one because the back vent is all original and we don't sleep under it. But if I was in your situation, with your coach, I wouldn't even think twice. Enjoy the fan, you're going to love it!

I just came from the RV dealership to get some sealer for the fan before it comes in the mail.Here is what i got.
Dyco C-10 Flow Seal self leveling caulk.
Butyl tape.
Would these be just as good to seal the fantastic fan on the roof?The instructions for the caulk said that it is used on RV roofs.
Just need some advise before I start doing something wrong.I can take some pics and post it if needed.

I forget what Airstream uses, I think it's Silkaflex, but thats what I'd use. Not sure if yours is a silicone type caulk, but silicone isn't recommeded.

Devoman.
The Dyco should work it is a hypalon rubber self leveling caulk. I am not so sure if that isn't what AS is using on their vents right now...it sure looks like it on the newer units. Just make sure the surfaces are very clean or it will not stick properly. It is apparently the industry standard for installing roof penetrations.

Sealing

I went ahead and purchased some Sikaflex and some Walbernize. When using this product do i need to do anything else while polishing the Airstream?

Sealing

Today when i was washing the Airstream I took a look at the area where the fan will be going.I noticed that they put a lot of sealer around the area.About 2 inches thick away from the edge.Should I do this Also like they do it to be safe or will just a bit on the edge be good enough?I am just wondering if this is the same stuff I will be putting on the fan when i seal it.Thanks.

That leveling sealer, the Dyco, is what Fantastic used when they installed mine. Used a HEAVY bead on the outside, AFTER the vent was installed. Nothing was used between the vent and the shell, except the foam liner it comes with. They told me that let the vent foam breathe for about 15 minutes before you put the caulk on. It lets any of the air in the foam escape after you have compressed it, so they said. I watched pretty closely how he did it so feel free to keep posting questions! John

John,
I'm not trying to sound confrontational, but I'm still not sure why you don't have two, yourself? Why would the originality of your back vent be an issue? Does it have a fan? It would seem that your coach, being longer than Devo's, would more of a candidate for two. Just curious. I too am considering a pair for my Bambi, so I've been following this thread. - Roy

Sealer

Yea ... I plan to.It looks as if they got happy with it and started to use there fingers in it.I am waiting on the sikeflex to get here in the mail.I think it would be better to just use this to seal the fan with.I just want to be safe.

Thumbs up Fan

Well i got it in the mail and i just finished it with the Butyl and Dyco sealer.Those things worked out really well.I like the putty tape style stuff that goes under the vent to seal it off.Then the self leveling stuff was cool to.Someone had said earlier that i probably will buy a second one.I think they might be right.This is worth every penny spent.Now on to the electric jack.I would like to say thanks for all the help everyone has givin me you all are great.

Fantastic is a great company with a great product and great customer service. I installed one in a 1999 34 limited and didn't need Airstream garnish beacuse the roof is almost flat anyway. I own 2 of them and have had no problems. They are quiet and they move alot of air. I have had no problems with the rain sensor or the temp control.If you are not wanting to do the install yourself call fantastic and see when they will be in your area. They send install crews to many major RV events. Camping World also sells them. Good Luck.
