Question Fantastic Fan

Wish my Tracer 2670BHS had FanTastic fans!

I have a brand new Tracer and would love to have the vents replaced with FanTastic fans, but I am afraid to have the factory seals around the vents removed. I would of course have the service center do the work for fear of leaks.

Is it worth disturbing the factory seals around the vents in order to replace them???? Should I trust the service center/dealer to put in a new one?

Thanks for any input!

in my last TT

I replaced the small under power bathroom fan with thisHeng's Industries Usa Llc - Vortex Replacement Vent Fan Upgrade - Vents - Camping World

and I installed one one these with the thermostate in the bedroom
Maxxair Vent Corp - Turbo/Maxx Economy Model 3550 12V Ceiling Fan/Vent without Thermostat - Vents - Camping World

both very easy to install & I think both of these work great and didn't need tp replace the whole vent

A fellow 2670BHS Owner! Welcome to the forum Daper. One of the modifications planned for this year is a Fantastic Fan in the bathroom, and I am going to let a qualified Tech install it... so I can't give you any advice just yet, except to say I'm getting one.

I had my Fantastic Fan installed by the service department. Of course labor cost can add up fast but the job was done & over with in a short time and I was on the road to the beach in less than 45 minutes. Best part is that I waited indoors with A/C while the guy was working outside in the sun.

Looks like the fan was a good investment - will put it to a real test over the 4th of July holiday.

Same here which is why I opted to pay the extra cost. When I was inquiring about adding a rain cover he said something drilling holes for the cover so I decided against it. I have a small trailer and things works as is which is good enough right now.
