Fan Tastic Fans/ceiling fan

In reading various posts I saw mention of a Fan Tastic fan that also operated as a ceiling fan. Basically ran with the vent closed. I am unable to locate that thread again. Can some one give me a model number?

I don't think that there is such a device. There are 120V ceiling fans in some larger 5'ers like mine but no high volume fans that work as exhaust fans with the vent open and ceiling fans with it closed. You would burn them out in doing so.

Fan Tastic and Northern Breeze work the same, just different brands.

Not aware of a Fan-tastic Fan that can be run in reverse, however Heng's Vortex IV fan can be. I installed the Vortex over the others because it required no breaking of roof seals as the fan is designed as a retro fit into existing vent frames.

I installed this in place of my stock bunkhouse vent fan as well. Went with the 3 speed version. It took a little over an hour. Very good fan for the $ and ease of install.

Googled the Heng's Vortex IV and other than the company web site could not find it for sale. I did find the one with the 9 inch blades rather than the 12 inch. Both offer reverse. Do I really need the 12 inch or will the 9 inch do the job?

Maxxair Deluxe works as a ceiling fan although it doesn't move a great amount of air, I will be trying mine out this weekend I just installed it last weekend.

I was wrong in my original post, Vortex II not IV has 3 speeds and reverse --- Sorry.

I bought mine from Amazon for ~$60 about a year ago...mine is 9" blades single speed part number 90043-CR. It works very well for us and we didn't need reverse, but since you want reverse you need the Vortex II, not sure the part number.

These fans are availabe everywhere; Tweety's, CW, Amazon, etc.

Very easy installation, all from the inside, and good air flow for the $.

Model 71112V2 is the three speed reversible found in variuos locations online. Ebay, Amazon, RVadventure and so on. IMHO get the 3 speed for the extra few bucks. Easy install if you have power there already.

Not sure if I have power near by or not. TT is stored 275 miles away and never noticed if power is close by or not. Right now I just have a plain vent, but REALLY want something like this. Going down in 2 weeks so I can see what I can find out. I do know there is an ac duct near by. Would I dare run a wire from some where through the duct and to the fan? The other thought is having the dealer install it. Hopefully he could take care of the wiring issue. Any one have any idea what a dealer might charge to do such work? Do I need to replace the vent cover? I do plan on also adding a maxxair cover as well. So, provided I have power , I can install the fan from the inside into the exsisting vent?

Yes, provided you have power, the entire Vortex Fan installation is from inside. Vent cover, thats clearly from the outside. When I did my fan I also did a MAX-Air II vent cover, whole project took 90 minutes.

Others have posted about having 12v power pulled but not terminated by the factory to vents w/o fans as part of the basic harness they install. Hopefully that is the case for you. Although worse case I doubt you would have to look to far for a 12V source. Any lights near the vent?
