Ceiling fan install

I have a 2002 Wildcat 5er. I'm thinking of installing a 42" ceiling hugger ceiling fan near the living area A/C. That is the highpoint of my ceiling for the most clearance. I intend to tap of the a/c for electric and use the pull chains for operation. Finding the ceiling joist should be a no brainer. anybody see a problem with this plan? Clearance won't be an issue.

I would only use a fan made for an RV...a house fan may swing too much while going down the road.

Ceiling hugger doesn't swing. My trailer is parked permanently in campground never to be moved again.

The only possible issue I see would be running the fan and AC at the same time.

Continuous use of both may over heat the circuit breaker.

Yep, This 45 year electrician knows that. We have a low voltage issue in our park. That's why I'm installing the fan. A/C won't run on crowded weekends.

Cool beans, on this site any reported mods require pic's or it didn't happen.....






They also help others who might like to do the same thing.

With 108 volts, I don't have 1 amp to spare. Compressor won't start on 108.
