RV Vent Chandelier

Has anyone installed one of these? If so how do you like it, did you get the remote? I'm thinking about one for the lounge Fantastic vent in my motor home. It looks like a pretty cool idea and instructions seem to indicate it is easy to install.

Interesting , I don't have one, but without going through the whole web site , I'd say that if not everyone in the family can reach the ceiling, then the remote would be a " must have".

I like the concept. I have 2 power vents. One is powered by a thermostat and the other is powered by a switch on the wall. My concern is they use the 12V power to the fan to power the light. In my case the fan would be running when I wanted the light.

I too wondered about needing to have the fan running to have lights, but I can turn my fan speed to "0" to turn the fan off and leave the vent open so maybe there is 12 volts present when the wall switch is on. I need to pull the fan trim/garnish and take a look see.

I can do that also but now the light is turned off with the wall switch and when I want the fan to run I have to turn the wall switch on and then go and switch the fan on. To much monkeying around to suit me.

It's a nice concept but unless the thing with the light vs fan is resolved, I'll pass.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

You just have to tap into 12v before the switch. If you have a switch, the fan can be set to zero and then switch would only control the light.

I kinda like the idea, thanks for sharing.

The manufacturer has a YouTube installation video, but it is pretty poor. Still photos only, no video - no narration. They are sold on Amazon as well. I think I might give them a try via Amazon due to Amazon's customer satisfaction and return policies.

It's tough going through life as the Gadget Man, I pity my wife sometimes...

I took the shroud/garnish off my lounge area vent and found there is 12 volts present all of the time regardless of wall switch or fan switch positions. So with the remote this looks like a pretty neat gadget :-) Camping World carries them, will need to go see if they have one at the local store to make sure it is what I want. If it is then will find it at best price elsewhere.
