Fantastic Fan

Could someone tell me if I would be able to install a fantastic fan in my present vents. We had the black vent covers that can remain open at all times installed and I would like to have the fantastic fans installed under the present vents. I would like to have 3 of them installed. All help is appreciated.

You can. It's very easy to do yourself if you are handy. The vents are all prepared for fans. I have installed 1 in mine and it is more yah enough, 3 seems like overkill.

Three in ours, too. Bedroom and living room/kitchen have thermostats and the one in the bathroom is basic model. Keeps the coach cool for the cat when we're out and about and also helps keep the need for air condo to a minimum. That said, we tend to travel north in the hot weather and south in the cooler times of the year; just our preference.

Fantastic Fans

I installed one Fantastic Fan in the kitchen area and immediately did not like the limited control it has. I removed it and installed 3 MaxxAir remote control fans that have 10 speeds, reversible fan, rain sensors, open lid with fan off, closed lid with fan on (works like a ceiling fan) and they are far superior to Fantastic's. Had Fantastic's in our 43' motorhome, in out 38' fifth wheel, and in our 30' travel trailer. I am very familiar with Fantastic's over the past 30 years and loved them until I tried the MaxxAir fans. A little pricey but worth it, especially went using the bathroom and having a remote available in place of a window. This is the first time I even knew that MaxxAir fans existed.

"fedatty.... those "MaxxAir remote control fans " sound Great !

Here is a link for some owners like me with Fantastic Fans with only 'One direction' Fans
This link will show what you need and how to wire it. At very Low Cost .
LINK > Fantastic Fan Upgrade ...added Reverse Switch
I did both my 'one direction fans' in one hour. I labeled them "O for out and I for in" with little stick on letters.

Note: I checked with the manufacturer to confirm that everything was the same on my model of fan except not being reversible, which was only the addition of a switch that makes it reversible.
(Please note the link is not me)

hope this helps

Installed two FF's in two hours. Thermo control, in/out three speed with rain hoods. They work great.
