Maybe you Monaco people shouldn't be so smart.
The new coach has Fantastic fans. Both are stripped and won't open the vent covers, which are trash anyway. The vent covers need to be replaced regardless, but without knowing the model number, I'm apprehensive to order vent covers. Is there anyway to tell the model number? Maybe all the vent covers are the same and it wouldn't matter?
Once I get the covers done, I can go to work on why they won't open in the first place...
I know there are different models but cannot tell you where they post the model number. It seems to have more to do with the features that the fan has. (Duhh - if you can identify the number of speeds, reversible, rain sensor, thermostat it will give you the approximate model)
Added to that it seems they have changed model numbers in the last few years.
I will guess that one cover fits all. I am sitting at a RV dealer right now and looking at the different models it appears that the basics on all of them are identical.
If the lid has a motor to open it you may have to push the knob up to engage the motor. If it is straight manual it is likely stripped but I find it odd that both are stripped.
I know they are able to upgrade and provide parts for old fans. It also seems to me that they have a pretty good warranty. I seem to recall talking to a fellow who had some issues with his fan and they sent him the replacement parts free. Could be bad memory but that is what I recall.
I would call the Fantastic folks to see if they can help you. http://www.fantasticvent.com/
