air moving in motor home?

In my stick and bricks I was able to open a window in each end of the house and have air flow! My motor home don't seem to work this way at all. I have tried the fantastic fan and one window and have feeling I need a much larger fan. But what I would most like is to have a passive breeze with just the windows... Can anyone offer a suggestion?

You would do better to open more windows. Too cool the coach down, open all windows on the cool side of the coach and run the Fantastic Fan in exaust mode. Leave windows on sunny/hot side of coach closed. Works for me.

What works for us is, open one large front window or open entry door and turn on the rear exhaust fan. The breeze created blows paper off the dash or table where fresh air is drawn in.

You have set the fan to blow out, not in, right? This way gravity will enhance fan performance, exhausting the warmer air that collects near the ceiling.

I'm used to fresh air circulating as well. Find the fan does a nice job when only the window closest to me is open for max effect.
