In other words, you're going to pull an FT Turbs & Ms. Amy, DW does the work and you grab the credit.

In this case, because DW can not only climb right into the large baggage door, but can pass right through the small one... You betcha!

Was privileged to meet gatnfans this morning when he came to pick up his poles and was showing him the mods. Showed him the new fw hose reel and it wouldn't work, then showed him the dual fans on the back of the refrigerator and they wouldn't work. Figured blown fuse. WRONG. After I mounted the hose reel I checked it out with jumper wires, removed the jumper wires and evidently CRS kicked in and I never permanently wired it. DUH! As for the refrigerator fans, checked voltage at switch-GOOD, removed both fans and hooked directly to 12V - NOTHING, neither fan even tried to move. Ordered 4 new 80 mm ball bearing fans on ebay for $23.80 and will mount 2 and carry 2 spares. Got 2 years out of them running 24/7, so it cost $5.95/yr for the fans.

Now to go permanently wire the hose reel and wait on the fans.

Do you have a link to the fans that you bought? I ordered some off of Amazon, but they're way too small. Classic ME move, though.

12V 80mm fans
12V 120mm fans

Large selection and they have the specs listed for rpm, cfm, current draw and noise level. I prefer the 120mm fans if you have the room, it allows you to use slow speed (quiet) fans and still move plenty of air.

These guys are in the US, and I've ordered from them many times.
I have two of these outside and one of these inside.

FW hose reel permanently wired. Damn, some people's kids would forget their heads if they weren't bolted on.

Thanks offroad. The 80mm size matches what OC had selected too. That's definitely where I messed up, I went with ones that were much much smaller.

Your welcome, smaller fans usually means faster and louder.

I just have to say my dealer is the bomb.com!!!!
Called on Monday with my water issue and set an appointment for Thursday (Today) at 9:00. I also stressed how soon it needed to be handled. I got there at 8:30 and they were waiting for me and as I was leaving the trailer was heading into the shop. Just got a call that they found 2 problems and that they were simple fixes and that the trailer is ready for pickup!!!! :woot::hyper:
