Roof vents

I have a 2015 31 ft Jayco Eagle and would like to ask a question of the forum members. This ceiling height is somewhat higher than my previous RV making the roof vents harder to reach. I can reach the knobs to open and close, but, my wife can't. We know that a step stool can be used, however, that increases the falling risk. Is there anything available that can be purchased to turn the vent knobs without getting on a step stool ? Thanks

Our RV has Fantastic fans with wall mounted switched to raise/lower and turn on/off.

Can these be added. Otherwise, you can get a dowel and put metal pins on the end to operate the switches.

Fantastic Fan also has wireless remote controlled units. No in the wall wiring required. That might be your easiest, but not the cheapest route.

People have made their own "tools", although something like this would work https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Barke...-p/31-4169.htm

We have the Maxxair deluxe fans in our trailer. Both are controlled by a remote control. Not the cheapest route but we are very happy with the results.
