The fan that I have works very well for a one speed. It may even work to good because when I turn the fan on without opening a window it pulls odors from the holding tanks. I was hoping a slower speed would help reduce the odors.

I replaced my OEM single speed lousy fan with a Vortex II and wish I hadn't. It broke a month after the warranty was up and went from 3 speeds to 1 speed, both intake and exhaust. Plus it was really noisy. I had a Fantastic Fan in a previous trailer and it worked very well, wasn't noisy and I would get one again if I could afford it. Maybe after Christmas!

In my last rig I replaced mine with a Fantastic Fan. It came with butyl tape, and a gasket, all I had to do was supply the Dicor, which you need to inspect and either add some to the old, or scrape it and replace it. Seals around vents are not permanent so I would not worry to much about breaking a seal that will eventually break on it's own.

If you decide to replace the whole thing, the best value IMO is the MaxxFan Standard with Remote Control available from Camping World right now for $ 228. 10 speed, reversible, remote control, rain sensor. It also has twin lifting arms that makes it quieter and more secure. Link to listing with video review:

Thanks but I would not buy anything from Camping World because they don't stand behind what they sell.
