Fan-tastic Vent fans

Is it possible to keep the original vent cover and retro fit it onto the Fantastic fan? I really didn't want to remove all of the DICOR sealant and re-apply.

I would be installing 3 of these

-Bathroom
-Bunkhouse
-Bedroom

I guess I could get the PRO....fessionals do it for me.

I dont believe it's possible to retro fit the fan into the existing vent.

There is a kit available that is an upgrade to the 3 speed fans that come in most trailers. It has a remote and 14 speeds. We did this upgrade on our last TT. Vent hole for upgrade has same dimensions as original vent fan. However, when you upgrade to higher speed fan you have to install new covers on the the roof top because of the high velocity of air the upgrade can reach. At least that is what we were told by the dealer that did this upgrade for us. In our new TT we had a different unit installed ( before we brought trailer home) that had the remote and 14 speeds but came with a roof cover that is part of the assembly. According to this dealer it's a cheaper way to go. Either way you'll be happy you made the upgrade. Good luckL

best thing to do is buy the fans as an assembly and replace them as a whole. pulling the old one out and re gluing the new isn't hard at all and not a big mess either. it sounds like you have non power vents and are asking if you can install the power assemblies from power vents into non power housings?
