Nice how to tho.
You're right garbonz, the Vortex II isn't the best vent fan on the block. It seemed adequate and does work. On one trip this year, we were in Moab when it was 112F and we weren't allowed to use our generator in the park since we never at camp during gen hours. We ran Vortex II non-stop for 3 days and it held up just fine. It wasn't however up to pushing enough air to keep us cool by itself, even at night. We cranked up a box fan on low using an inverter and that pushed WAAAY more air. We have a decent bank of batteries and 340 watts of solar, so that wasn't a big deal. It does it's job of venting the bathroom, but don't count on it as an air conditioning replacement in desert heat.
