Just read this old thread about Fantastic Fans leaking. We have a 1968
Tradewind that the fan started leaking last fall. We cannot see a physical crack, hairline or otherwise anywhere in the flange of the fan, nothing is readily apparent. We believe the fan cover is not the issue as water is running into the skin of the trailer and dripping onto the floor, thinking it has to be the plastic flange. We removed the old sealant as much as possible and cleaned the area with acetone and then added gray eternabond tape all the way around the fan and up the sides of the flange. We also resealed all our roof joints with Trempro 635, just to make sure the leak has nothing to do with one of our seams. Because we did all of this late in the fall just before we took our trailer to indoor storage we really did not know if the issue was completely solved. Sad to say we just brought our trailer home and had some really hard rains only to find out the fix from last fall did not solve the issue. Does anyone have any suggestions what we have to do to fix this leak? Do we need the fan completely taken out? If that is the case is there a better option for a new fan other than another Fantastic Fan? Really at our wits ends here with this leak.
