I made arrangements with a repair man to install it, and after waiting for ages, He took one look at it and said it wouldn't work, and left the job site with a bill for me($45.00), and with me holding the bag, so to speak. I felt rather in shock and frustrated, so I rested a few minutes, and then called Fantastic Fan company, and the technician assured me that it would work, and to read over the instructions, and do it myself, because it's "very easy"! I had read the instructions before and read them again, but decided I couldn't do any worse than the "serviceman".
I removed the screws, and disconnected the wires as directed. No problem! I had difficulty getting the rain sensor removed, even though it was supposed to be very easy. Working overhead is a bit dizzying as well. I did make some minor progress but was worried I'd mess it up. So I put it away temporarily.
Later I hired another serviceman to do the job. He assured me that he was very familiar with the Fantastic Fan and had installed many of them. However, he removed two screws and stated that the kit I had purchased would not work to replace the old one! I called the company and they talked to him to get him "unstuck". After about an hour, he had this "easy" job done and I have a functioning fan, and after paying the bill ($110.00) I was ready to leave and go back to my camp.
These fans are wonderful, and if one is a boondocker they are nearly a necessity in hot weather. I had not realized how essential they are for keeping a black greyhound comfortable in warm or hot weather.
|What is this hot sun doing, making me miserable?|
|This is how I should look, cool an comfy.|
They also act like a skylight, making the inside of the RV more bright and cheerful. They pull hot air out and exchange the RV's air in a few minutes. I am glad to have mine working again, in spite of the difficulty of the repair.
