You guys are awesome! I think our bathroom fan is the one in the video that fonzie posted. So it does look fairly easy to get it off to clean. Thanks! This is our first travel trailer and we just purchased it in January. It's in indoor storage right now so we have been trying to get things cleaned up and repaired inside. We are so much looking forward to camping in it after being in a pop-up for the last 6 years. It's going to be a very different experience but we have SO much to learn about how everything works.

Linda gave us your pink one, but, I guess now that I know how to remove the screen, you can have your toothbrush back.

If it does look like that,remove it and put a REAL Ex.Fan in! Those (Little NOISE Makers are WORTHLESS)! This is just my personal opinion! Youroo!! We have 2 (Fantastic Fans ) the round screen removes easy but to Totally Clean all the blades and assembly plus the housing is a Chore!

had the same issue with light in stove hood. melted a hole about the size of a quarter, then bulb blew. Had it replaced at Goshen. Tech mentioned the cover for our unit was unique to stove hood, he looked at it and went somewhere to obtain the replacement. might be a place to start. I agree with the replacement bulb being a LED, less heat and some bulbs actually give more light.

Cleaning bathroom fan screen

Here's what I do and you don't need to remove the screen. Open the vent cover then vacuum the screen from inside. Next turn the fan on and use compressed air or a leaf blower and blow the dirt and dust go out the vent. Just takes a few minutes.

Glad someone asked. Was going to play the boy a cheeseburger to wipe the dust down on him and then vacuum it up.

No drive thru for him and its a heck a lot cleaner.

Melting light cover

Concerning your light question re: bulb melting plastic cover - you might try using an "aquarium" bulb which is about the same length as a bulbous
light bulb, but is long and about the width of the base its entire length.
