Has anyone installed a bedroom ceiling fan?

Happy wife… Happy Life.
I was hoping to get advice on installing a bedroom ceiling fan. Has anyone out there installed one in their Alpine? I was thinking that a 120v would be best since it looks like I could probably get power from the AC.

Our coach already had one when we bought it. Power was taken from the A/C.

Rusty Bear added a 12 volt ceiling fan in the bedroom of their Alpine, using power from the nearby vent. He showed me the install. Looked good and pretty easy. I am still considering it.

Hello David and Stilla!

We had a 12 volt ceiling fan installed in the bedroom, above the bed. My feeling is that it is pretty wimpy in terms of how much air it pushes. Lying just under the fan, I can barely feel any air movement.

I like the idea of trying to use some 110 voltage for the increase in fan speed.

I asked the installers and they told me they stick a 2x4 or 2x6 (whichever fits best I guess) up in the air ducting (which for us is a molded channel in the styrofoam ceiling). Neat trick!

If you go with a 110V unit, I'd like to hear more about it.

Cheers!
