No can do. The light switch is on the wrong side of a wall stud. I have the switch moved and will show how I did it hopefully later today. It came out good.

You could wire it that way, and that is the way ours came from the factory. The wall switch provides power to both the ceiling light and the vent fan. Only problem is that DW can not reach the fan switch to shut it off when she wants. I need a DW with longer legs -

Nope in this coach the fan wiring and switch have 2 wooden barriers studs between it and any other switch. The wall would have to be opened up to drill through the studs. I have it moved and will take pictures later today. I came up with a pretty clean solution.

Switch moved!

Okay this what I did.
First pic is the before with the push button switch .
2nd pic is the result of a few minutes at the table saw and router table.
3rd pic is where I applied the home made channel material.
4th pic is the final install of the switch.
I think this will work out just fine.

Talking Ceiling Fan Switch

Ha! This bothered me, too. I put an old wooden yardstick in the corner of the john! Non tech solution works fairly well!

After a few trips with this mod I have to say I'm pleased with it. I thought about a couple non tech solutions but sitting on the crapper and being able to push a button and clear the air is kinda nice, it's the little things I guess 😉
