Ceiling Fan issues

Anyone else have their ceiling fan just crap out? It was running the other day and when I went back in later during the day AFTER we had a power outage in the neighborhood, it just quit.

Its not identified on any of the fuse terminals or circuit breakers, which I believe the breakers would control it as it has to be 110 if I'm not mistaken?

I'm hoping its a simple fix because I don't want to have to tow it to the dealer for this one thing.

If it's a Fantastic Fan, they have a fuse up in the fan area. Not sure though if ALL that name brand has fuses, Although my fan did. Hope this helps.

If it's a vent fan its most likely 12v. Only the AC unit fan will be 110.

Check your GFI as I recall mines hooked to the ceiling fan & light

If you are talking about the ceiling fan and not the vent fan you are correct, it is 120v. I leave mine on 100% of the time. Pushing air up in the winter and down in the summer. After approx 3 years service it just quit. I never liked that original fan anyway and even on high it didn't move much air. I replaced it with a larger 52" fan that moves serious air on high, but run it on low again 100% of the time. Much better fan than the original and it is remote control too.

Yes I had to buy it vs warranty, but much better product.

We run ours like that too and when it expires, I plan to go the same route. My concern is clearance when the opposing slides are in. Since our rigs are the same, did that present any concerns or problems? Looking at mine, it will be close.

You r right that they hardly push air. Plan on changing mine just for that issue. Since u already did yours is it a standard mount and was the old fan super light weight?

Thanks Campingbuds and Edd505!

The GFCI outlet was the culprit! THANKS AGAIN! I would have hated to tow it 3 hours to have them push a button!

Those who have tripped the GFI with a power outage do u use a progressive electric protector? If not u should add one to protect all your electronics
