Oscillating fans in 2000 southwind

Installing sunscreens in my mh. I've never used the oscillating fans and am considering removing them.thought I'd ask if there is a reason to keep them.

How well do the defrosters work on their own? Often the fans are very helpful in removing windshield fog. Other than that, it's pretty much a personal choice thing.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

We've never used ours either but removing them would leave a bad-looking place on the dash! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Yeah, those fans have saved my butt a couple of times when the defroster couldn't keep up. Of course, if you stay far enough south that's not an issue.

I worked my butt off to repair a short in my fans because I couldnít live without them. Must be male menopause!
