Buy a new cab fan for 2003 Winnebago Sightseer

I bought a 2003 Sighteer 30B last year when I turned the cab fans on (operated from the dashboard) the drivers side worked the passenger side was inoperative. I tested the wires going to the fan and there was power going to the fan. I removed the fan from the ceiling, and took the back off, it smelled burnt. I would like to replace the fan it is a 3 wire 2 speed fan, made by Commonwealth (DC 12 V 1.4 A15 cm Two Speed Fan Model FP-105L). Does anyone know where I could purchase a replacement? Thanks for your help.

I would try Litchsinn Motors. They are the Winnebago dealer close to the factory in Forest City. They have always had or could get anything I needed and they seem fair on their prices.

Those little 2 speed fans are sold under at least a dozen names all over the online world. Car sites, truck sites, school bus suppliers etc. They are all the same. I just bought a pair for $23 each through Amazon. Disposable Chinese junk.

Mustang thanks for your reply, most of the fans that I have seen have a high, low, off switch. the fans in my Sightseer are 2 speed fans no switch on the fan but high low controll on the dash board. Do you know if I can wire the fans so they can be controlled form the dash board.
Thanks to everyone for your posts.

the fan wiring is very basic. The fan DPDT switch is pretty tightly housed in the fan base, but a little experimentation should be able to duplicate the fan switch hook-ups on the dash switches. You can pull the switch out the bottom of the fan. is one of my future projects. I just needed to get the new fans installed for a race trip a few weekends ago.
I have seen other fans with one speed. I don't know if they could be wired and used successfully as two speeders.

actually, after a little thought, because you already have the switch and wiring in place, you may be able to just connect the wires from the switch (two of them?) to the new fan motor after removing the switch from the fan. Even if you get them backwards the fan will spin the wrong way, so just reverse.
