The nob with 4 points, push or pull gently and turn do the opposite for auto...it might have a separate wall switch also.

New problem ?? Or new to you coach ?

Do you know the model number of the Fantastic fans ?
Wired remote ? Or possible dead batteries in a wireless remotes?
Have you checked the fuses with a test light or multi-meter ?

" Fuses appear to be good " Looking good isn't always good, when it comes to fuses , you have to test them.

The outside covers do need to be raised sufficiently for the motor to start.

I've got a knob that has 0 - 3 on it... Won't push or pull... Each fan has a fuse next to the knob - both fuses are good.... There's a thermostat on the wall with a slide that has temp settings on top 60 - 90... Also has a temp indicator for inside temp... McCullers of days ago I slid the slide over to 90 and fan started... Next day fan was off and can't get it to start again.... I'd like it on so I can pull some of the heat out of my coach...

No mention of details. We can probably help with more details. What kind of RV? Year?
Looks like you have a class A. Most A's will have a 12v coach fuse panel. Check that also.
Thermostats go bad. May have to do some investigative work. Do you have a multi-meter?

That 0-3 knob, have you turned it? That's your fan speed and may be on 0. Set the speed to #3, make sure the cover is open, slide the switch to the lowest temp and give it a try. I've never seen one with a slide on the wall....mine has an on/off switch on the wall. Where is your on/off switch?

Good chance the fuses you've found aren't the only ones in the circuit , have you checked the fuse holder for power???
Pulled the wall control and checked for power?

There is a "push" button switch, when the cover opens fan should turn on.

On mine I had to go on top and work the switch by hand a couple of time and then it started working
