Perfect fan for the TT!

I just found this little fan. I am upgrading all the fans in the TT but I love how this one is tucked under the cabinet and "goes away" when you don't need it. Wish it ran on 12V though.

Does anyone own one??? Is it good as it looks?



Amazon (good price)

Oh yeah... Nice Find!! I just ordered 2 of them.

That'll work well under the cabinet in the kitchen... and also under the cabinets at the head of my bed. (I'm one of those who likes a fan blowing at night)

Tom, you have to let me know how you like them ASAP. I am going to order one or two! I'm in Canada so shipping is bit of a bitch and definitely not free! lol

Down here in the states they are offered in many stores, including the big box stores (home depot).....you may be able to find them there (Sears, Kohl's, Bed Bath & Beyond)......

We have one mounted under the cabinet in our Coleman. Great little fan. Only issue is you may need to access the inside bottom of the cabinet, it has machine screws to attach it with. My cabinet bottom was very thin, so I added a backing block.

The fan is on my bride's side of the bed... She is still hot! It just comes in flashes now.

Spending the first night in the rig since I received & installed these, so I can finally give a report.

Install was pretty simple & easy... although you MUST have access to BOTH sides of the panel you plan on mounting these things, unless you want to try modifying them. They provide a template for you to tape to your mounting area... You drill the holes... and then you insert the provided screws into the holes from the back side, which then screw into the rotating fan base.

Took me all of about 10 minutes per fan, and most of that was prep work.

I mounted one above the head of my bed (I'm one who likes a fan at night), and another in. Y LR. I would have liked to installed another one above my TV seats in my LR slide out...but doing so would require me to remove a large panel for access, and I'm not sure I wanna do that. I was hoping I could mount it by simply sung self-tapping wood screws... but the design of the rotating fan base doesn't allow that. That's why I stated that you need access to both dude of your mounting area.

The fans have a 2-speed switch, and work ok... but I wish they were a little stronger. I have a similar size table-top fan that is almost twice as strong on the high setting. Oh well... guess it's a trade-off: fan strength vs. space-saving.

All in all, not bad little units.

Yikes, those fans aren't cheap! I do like how they mount up and out of the way, though. My preference has been for the slim desktop fans to minimize their footprint. We strictly boondock and I use a DC to AC inverter for my 120V AC power needs. These little fans don't require much power at all.
