Fan-Tastic Create a Breeze Fan

All of my other trailers have just had a regular fan in them. My new trailer has the Fan-Tastic fan which has a lot more power!

I had read on a forum post earlier about never making the mistake of having this fan on when flushing. Is this because the fan will draw "smells" back up from the black tank?

That is correct. These fans can create quite a suction. Now if the fan is not in bathroom, and if you have multiple windows open, and the bathroom door is closed the chances are minimized.

Our "create a major suction" is located in the bathroom. I had noticed with the bathroom door shut, you can feel the air sucking in from under the door.

Glad I posted the question and will be sure to pass the info along to DH!!

I replaced my sewer vent with one of these...

They are spring-loaded rather than being held closed by gravity.

We installed one in the bathroom of our FR3 30DS.... we noticed no problems and no smells.... there is enough room under the bathroom door for the fan to draw air from the main motorhome area.... we did have our ceiling vents open in the bedroom and the kitchen but we have never had a single problem with air being sucked out of the black tank when the fan is on....

These fans are awesome! We use them to bring in our dinette and bedroom slides in. We have 3 and are very happy with them.

We don't have the sewer smell issue with our fan on the Cardinal that is located in the head. However, it was a huge issue with the Country Coach.

I can't figure out why but apparently each model of RV is different. Just glad it isn't an issue now!
