The fantastic fans..

We had our dealer install two.. One in the washroom and one ahead. But neither of them work when the generator is on. Is this the proper way to wire them

I haven't done this mod yet, but my thought was to have them spliced into the same 12vdc wires that power the lights. I might be wrong. Interested though.

Not sure why they would wire it so the fans won't work with generator running. They should be spliced into a constant 12v source (if possible). At least that's what I'm told.

I installed our fan in the bedroom. Wires were there. Haven't checked to see if the fan runs when generator is running.

Generator should have no bearing on if your fans run or not.
