Thumbs up Replaced Noisy Exhaust Fan

It was driving me nuts!

I picked up a 8" computer case fan and screwed it in to replace the noisy one.

This one even lights up a nice blue and is almost silent. It draws a whopping .17A, so forgetting to shut it off isn't too big of an issue.

I had to do a bit of revamping of the screen frame to get it to fit, but nothing drastic. I m going to replace the bathroom fan next and will do it a bit differently so I wont have to modify the screen and will post a pic of that one,also.

Blue is my favorite color, but can you turn it off when you aren't trying to impress friends and influence enemy's? You mod is really looking cool.

I upgraded the range hood fan on my last rig with a PC fan as well. Much quieter and better CFM rating than the cheesy one that came with the RV.

I'm glad to see a upgrade for said fan.
I would like to ask this;
On my vent to the outside there is nothing in front of the louvers So bugs and general stuff can come right in. Is it that way in all MH's can I just add some screening? What about in the winter and cold air.
I've never seen this addressed before and hoping for some idea's.
Thanks, Tim

Outside vent cover...

You can get a different vent cover for the outside. I bought out that, instead of being the open louvers you mention, has a single cover, and then a door that opens and closes depending on the air forced from the inside fan. I haven't installed it yet, but I heard good things about this over the kind I have now, which is like the one you described.

Let's just say it's good to have a noisy fan after eating bean burritos.

I take it that you will cut the louvers out of the side of the MH and install this door type in place of the louvers? Boy I'm not sure about this. Care too show some Pictures or where they are sold?
Thanks, Tim

You don't cut out the louvers, you just replace the entire vent. Here's the link to what I bought: Amazon.com: Ventline (V2111-13) Polar White Horizontal Exterior Wall Vent: Automotive

i did a very similar thing last November with two smaller fans, they fit perfectly between the mount bar and the screen.

great to see someone else ditched the old crappy fan
