My 1999 Excella has a Fantastic fan in the rear bedroom. It is a model 2000TRS which includes a remote wall mounted thermostat. It worked great until recently the gears stripped in the lift mechanism.
A few years ago I added a 803350 Fantastic Fan in the front roof vent opening.
I liked its function, so I decided to upgrade the rear fan because that a repair is needed.
I purchased upgrade kit 803359 from Dometic, which they say converts any Fantastic fan to have the features of the 803350.
Problem-> the circuit board on the new kit does not have the spade connectors to allow for use of the remote thermostat. I want to continue to use the wall mounted thermostat since I can control the fan while lying in bed.
Questions-> Has anyone resolved this issue? Where is it appropriate to splice in the existing thermostat wires into the new upgrade kit so that it will continue to operate in its original function?
I have requested information from Dometic customer service. So far, no joy.
