Fantastic Fan Opinion

Well my dealer finally agreed that the vents on the 2016 FR3 has pre wiring for a fan which now took a few hundred bucks off the total price.

So now the cost will be $530 installed for a fantastic 6600 r fan.
Once again, I really appreciate the help here....... Any info on the cost factor.
Thanks

Absolutely! I did my own in a 2014 FR3 in about 2 hours. (and that was only because it was my first one, with no experience. )

Edmo. Does that price include the cost of the fan?

Yes, the fan I know is a bit high at $338 and it's probably overpriced by more than $100 but the rv is at the dealer. That was my only thought and trust me i don't have the $$$$ to throw away.

If the dealer is charging $338 for the 6600r itself you can figure they are charging an extra $100 over the cost of what you can buy the fan for plus $200 for labor and materials. Are you handy at all? Is it worth it to you to pay an extra $300 just so you don't have to deal with a project that might take you a couple of hours?

If it was me, I would buy a tube of dicor, the fantastic fan, and go out and do it myself. Plenty of how to videos on Youtube if you want to see how it is done. That money saved would pay for a week in a nice RV park.

That dealer is ripping you off!!! You can buy that fan for around $250 on Amazon with free shipping. IMO , you should tell the dealer you'll supply the parts.
