Roof Vent ?

Hi To All
We got a 2012 Jayco Swift, and it has a roof vent in the bathroom, but it does not have a fan in it, does anyone know if you can add a fan to this vent without replacing the whole vent?

This vent is next to a light, it would easy to get the power from the light to run the fan.

I used a couple of computer case fans for our trailer vent should be possible to adapt.

Remove the interior framework. There should be 12volt wires prewired for a fan.

Check out the Vortex fan by Heng's Industries. It's a great high CFM fan that fits into your existing 14" vent frame. I used one on my JayFlight and it works great. Installs in about 30 min without breaking the factory seal and can all be from inside.

Check around, it can be found for less than $50

You may want a vent cover to run I in the rain. I used MaxxAir II, again I'm very pleased and it installed easily without effecting the roof seal

Ditto on the computer fan. They can be found in sizes ranging from 20 to 240mm. Generally the larger the fan the less noise it makes. Of all the mods I did to out previous RV that was the cheapest and most appreciated.
