Easy install Vent fans??

Good evening all. I was wondering if there is a fan vent that is an easy swap out. The powered fans that I've seen, are ones that you have to remove the cover from the roof, install the new one, and reseal it with Dicor. Is there one that just installs from the bottom? I really don't want to remove it from the top, but it's not out of the question. Just wanted to know if there are any easier solutions. Thanks.

The title was meant to read "Vent" fans.

I believe the vortex fans are done from the inside. Look up rv vent fan upgrade kit. Hope it helps.

I just upgraded our bedroom fan, the upgrade was done from the inside. When the weather is a little warmer I'll be installing a fan in the living room vent. That has to be done from the outside.

Happy Camping!

It will depend on the brand and type of vent you have. I know that Fantastic Vents can be upgraded from the inside no problems. The Vortex upgrade fan will fit "most" vents if they are the correct size.

Get a Vortex II upgrade kit from Amazon. They have single speed or 3 speed with reverse. The 3 speed model is just under $60, a whole lot cheaper than CW, by about $50. I replaced the vent fan I had that didn't do anything with the kit. It took about a 1/2 hour to do it from the inside, maybe 3/4 hour if you don't read the instructions. I got the multispeed fan and it does a great job. Not as noisy and the old on also.
