a few additions

I have two friends with ceiling fans in there fifth wheels and I really liked them because they move more air than a fan on the counter. I should say they move air over a larger area. also on our last trip my wife fell off the step ladder so I decided since our toy hauler didn't come with a vent hood over the range since it has no oven but rather a microwave/convection over ( I don't like the convection oven it doesn't cook pizza as well) but they put a manual roof vent over it instead. so I decided we needed a power vent with power lid as well. so I pulled the inverter/breaker box out since there were two available 12 v slots left and routed all wired back to it. I bought everthing with wall switch's rather than remotes cause batt's go dead and remotes disappear!! lol

i'm going to add a fan to the fridge vent next and then I will flip the axles so I want to go to 235 80 16 tires from 225 15's cause I need atleast 2" more ground clearance which will also require a new set of steps.

well i used the toyhauler for a week and that ceiling fan was worth every penny! the power vent was a great addition too. the ceiling fan works better than an oscillating fan!

12 v dc and a 110 would've moved more air but i wanted to be able to run it while i wasn't plugged in or if i had to pull over for the night. pulls 2.6 amps on high and was well worth it even while plugged in on a 95* day. we went down to oklahoma and the last 3 days of the week were 95* so i ran it non stop for 1 week with no problems.

our ceiling in the bedroom of our th'er isn't high enough to add one or i would've at the same time. it would be very nice to have on in there and the roof isn't thick enough to recess a spot for one, i checked that too.

I want the 12v ceiling fan. Where can I buy it? Did the wall switch come with it, or did you buy separately? If separate, do you have a link for that as well?

Thanks in advance,
- Dave.
