My coach puts out pretty good heat from the defroster and I use it regularly on North/south where a good amount of time is in temperatures less than 35 degrees. My fans, aimed straight back, put a surprising amount of the heat back into the living area. In the cold they help a lot.

Like the many other members who use them for various reasons, we do the same, however if the noise bothers you and you don't feel you have a need for them, then by all means remove them and replace them with something you feel is more useful.

Best of luck and safe travels....

Yep, when its damp and dewy out you will be glad you have the extra wind power blowing on your windshield to help keep it fog free. I have installed oscillating fans to replace my fixed type. What a difference they made in keeping the window clear.

Use ours when the windshield starts to get foggy or when we just want a little breeze on us.

My fans have a pretty well hidden switch on the fan body, and that has to be turned to on and to high or low speed for them to operate.
Have you checked with your fans if the switch is in the correct operation position?
