It's a ceiling fan, just like you would have in your house. They just swirl the existing air around, making you feel cooler because of the air flow.

They are options on the order sheet for Tiffins, I have one on mine. High and Low speeds.

My current coach has a 12-volt ceiling fan and it really helps us out at night. I can find new fans and switches on Amazon and other places, but I haven't determined how to run the wiring to the ceiling. All help appreciated.
Here's what I did in our '02 DSDP. I used a 30" low clearance hallway 120 volt fan. Removed the Thin Light ceiling light for access, added wood stringers in between the aluminum roof ribs, ran a cod through the roof to an upper cabinet and then to the plug in for the rear TV. As you can see the clearance was tight due to the slide. We also found that the fan control didn't like the MSW inverter so it burned one controller out. I replaced the controller and it was still working OK when we traded the unit off.

Thanks to all of you for your responses. If I end up getting a coach without a fan, I will install a 12-volt ceiling fan in it. I guess the "how" will depend on the space and wiring in the coach. I can do it -- I'd just hoped someone else had already done it so I wouldn't have to invent the design myself. But, seems all coaches are different so I'll have to figure it out as I go along.

Many posts in this thread are from those that've already done it. But as you stated, each coach is different as far as wiring & it'll depend on if you get a 120v or 12v fan. The only person who could advise you specifically for your application is the member who's done an install in the same make/model/year coach as yours.
