I had an issue with one of my Fantastic Vents that was in Warranty, called my dealer and they were no help at all. I find going to a dealers with warranty issues are worthless so I went online and got the support folks from
Fantastic Vent to help, amazing experience, not only were they helpful but shot out my needed part that day and I got it within 4 days. Might I suggest if you are going to be somewhere for an extended time, say a week, give them a call ahead and see if they can expedite to you whatever you need to where you will be.

The warranty for the fan ( and most other appliances) is from the appliance manufacturer and not FR. Call them. Odds are they will send you the part and instructions if you want to do it yourself or provide you with an authorized dealer close to you that can do it for you.

I had the squeaking issue from our previous trailer. Looked like the motor bracket was supposed to be mounted on rubber feet or a spacer yet it was screwed right to the housing causing the fan blade to be too close to the screen. I took the pop out screen off then the blade off the motor so I could remove the motor bracket screws and placed four stainless small nuts as spacers to raise the fan up a bit. I'd like to see the parts list on the fan assembly as I suspect someone left a few out on the install.

It has always been thus...but does that exempt it from being a lubricant?

In many cases, WD-40 actually rinses off the lubricant. Then, when it evaporates, it leaves nothing behind. It is excellent, for what it was meant to do. At other things, it can make matters worse.

Damn, all that lubrication I've done with WD-40 over the past 40 years...wasn't!

By the way, oil displaces water too...

Hmmm. "Excellent for what it was meant to do." What's it meant to do?

Their website says "drives out moisture, protects, frees sticky mechanisms, removes, lubricates."

WD-40 EZ-REACH™ 14.4 OZ

Not saying I necessarily agree with all of these, but the company clearly thinks it lubricates.

Water Displacement. Intended to be sprayed on the inside and outside of a wet distributor cap of a stalled military vehicle so it can be restarted after the distributor takes a bath in a creek, pond or puddle. Made for the military.

Oil a squeaking door hinge in your house with it and see if it don't need it again within a couple of months. Not a good lube.
