Pressurize for water leak test

Just a thought. Would you think 2 Fantastic fans drawing in would pressurize enough to do a leak test?? I know when they are both on high drawing in you can feel the pressure when you open or close the door.

Maybe if it was a BAD leak.. Camping World does it for $99.

I had a leak test done by a Camping World on a previous coach. They laid a sheet of plywood on the bed and sat this massive box on it. The top had a duct that sealed around the ceiling vent. When they started it up it sounded like a jet engine and I swear the walls bulged out. So no, I don't think a couple of Fantastic Fans will give you enough pressure for a meaningful test.

Forget that crazy idea. I just tried it on a known leak and it showed nothing.
Guess I was just looking for the easy cheap way out.
