Another ceiling fan issue

Does anyone have a user manual or instruction manual for the ceiling fan? Ours is turned off because it shorts the circuit breaker to ground.

Trying to find the short and any info on this fan would be helpful.

It's no different than any other fan/light combo. Power (black) neutral (white) ground (green or bare wire). The light wire is sometimes attached directly to the power wire sometimes to a separate wire (maybe blue). With the breaker switched off, disconnect the power wire at the fan and try the switch again after you turn the breaker back on. If the breaker still pops it's the switch or wiring from the switch to the light. If the breaker doesn't pop, it's the fan assy or it was miswired to start with. If you are uncomfortable with electricity ... call an electrical tradesman.

I'm good with the electrical. I'm looking for the 'this is how to take me apart' info.

Before I just start taking screws out.

On my Keystone and Cedar Creek fivers ... vent fans have been 12 VDC ... ceiling fan like in stick house have been 120 VAC.
Here's a generic installation

Our ceiling fan (stick house kind) was supposed to be available as a 12v option when we ordered our unit. There was an order line for it and
we ordered as such. When it arrived, it was 110v. I contacted the factory and was told they were phasing out the 12v models.

That's interesting but you can still get the 12V ceiling fans on line from places like Camping World. I wonder if there is a reason why they stopped the 12V. Our RV tech when we got the trailer did say not to reverse it while it the blades were moving as some of the 12V fans would mess up the circuit boards.

Possibly a pinched wire in the base of the unit.

On my trilogy it was the switch on the wall that was bad. The fan turned but real slow and the new switched fixed it.
