Front interior Fans useless

Does anyone have front interior fans that only point toward the windshield and are blocked by the overhead bed?

I want to make my fans useable where they will point toward the passenger compartment and actually work properly.

Easiest is to possibly extend the mount and hardest is probably move the fans to mount under the bunk which would require wiring modifications.

Any ideas?

Thanks

They are there to help reduce fog on the windshield
during rain events. Along with the defroster, they
make a huge difference in keeping the best visibility.

Those are for extra air movement over the windshield to help defrost it, not for keeping the people comfortable. If you want fans for YOU I'd recommend buying a couple of 12 volts fans and mounting them where they'd do the most good for moving air over the seats.

Your's must be mounted wrong! I can swivel mine, left, right, fore and aft. Contact THOR...If I didn't have those fans, I would definitely have to run generator and use the "House" Air-conditioners while driving!

When I look at most other coaches including the new hurricane the fans are movable and point toward the passenger area.

They don't swivel. Forget Thor I'm on my own. They have NEVER helped me and frankly rude. I'm not the original purchaser they said. They lost my 200K+ DP purchase withing 2 years due to their attitude.

They definitly can be a-holes! Every dealer I have ever dealt with has been one! You are oh so right, "you're on your own"...(I will be to, in November)

Good luck on the fan's!
