Fan/Light Combo - where to get them?

Hi All,

We just bought a new x17Z but only take possession in a few weeks .

I may be mistaken, but I don't think it comes with the fan/light combos that go over the beds (and seem to me to be a great investment).

Can anyone recommend the best place to buy these? I'm sure the dealer would be pleased to sell me a couple, but I wonder if ebay, or other such place, sells them also?

Are they standard, or do I need a specific type/brand for my Jayco hybrid?

Thanks in advance!

We have the 17z. They do not come with the fans. They discountined that option on the sport series. There is no where to plug in the fan/light combo. What we did was buy a clip on fan and small table lamp. In the bunk behind the bathroom there is an electrical plug on the wall and a little area for a lamp.

Thanks Zgabay,

I was afraid that would be the answer. Thanks for the ideas on workarounds.

Nathalis You could buy the plug and wire it in under the storage shelf above the bunks ( see the 19h).Use ''WIREMOLD" to hide the wires going up the wall if need be. Wire back to your loadcenter and connect to the 12v side of your loadcenter. If our not comfortable working in your elect. panel do all the other work then have your dealer do the panel work to protect your warrentee.Larry

Larry and Rachel - thanks for that tip - I'll pass it on to DH. Just might be our first mod.

I was going to ask if it would be feasible to switch the nearest light to install one with the input gizmo to accommodate the fan/light combo?

Which really is too bad, it's really too bad campers such as the 17z or the x20e. It would have been really nice to have them at least pre-wired, oh well.

Nathalie-- You probaably could as long as you can reach the tent support pipe to hold it up. That would probably void your warrentee though. Larry

We bought a 17Z last year and were disappointed that they did not have the fan combo or the plug for it in the lights. I ordered a fan from etrailer and a replacement light with the plug. I removed the plug as the dsign was different and installed it on my existing light.

Combo Fan is $23

Unfortunatley I don't see the replacement light on their website anymore. It was less than $10 but well worth the convenience of having the fan/light in the bed ends.
