Glad you had the same results I did. It is warming up as we've headed East and I have listened to other a/c units in the parks. I think I have one of the quietest units now. Noel

From the original poster:
The new fan kit can be purchased for about $18 each directly from RVP. Three kits are needed of course for our Entegras. The part number is 1472B5041 and the kit includes the new blade and a support bracket. It is very easy to install. You will need a T-25 Torx bit and about 5 minutes per AC unit. RVP service can be reached at (316) 832-4357. Noel

I called Airxcel as per the posting. Follow the tech support prompts. Once you get to the right number explain what you want. The answering voicemail sort of discourages retail buyers but just navigate around it and you eventually talk to someone who will take your credit card info. The first fan is $18 + shipping then the other two fans are thrown in the same box. The total was around $54.

When you order your fan kits it might be worth asking RVP if they will include an additional spacer washer with each kit. Your existing fans already have a washer that is located under the fan hub, but sometimes a second washer is needed to raise the new blade a bit to clear the electrical box.

Even if you don't need the washer to clear the electrical box, there is another reason the washer might be needed. I just checked my new fans (installed now for about 6 weeks) and they were slightly loose.

If you look at the photo below, the motor shaft is just a tad higher than the fan hub. The top washer (not shown, but it is the one under the screw that holds the fan in place) is supposed to hold the fan blade firmly. Mine were not, leaving a slight wiggle in the blade. Adding the additional washer under the fan hub fixed that.



The washers should also be available at a good hardware store.

The photo below shows the fan blade removed and the motor shaft with the original washer.

Would be great if Entegra and RVP worked out a deal where they could simply ship the required fans out to owners who needed them at no cost.

That would probably help the over stock situation

Definitely add the second washer. Noel

Voltdoc, I finally got around to installing the 3 fans. I used a 1/8 washer which gave me enough clearance. Thanks for all the advice. It really does make a difference but you were not kidding it has a slight hummm. Way more quite.

That's great Mike! We are happy with ours too. Kudos to RVP for identifying the problem and coming up with a solution, but it makes you wonder why they don't just make the quieter fan standard on newly shipping units? I doubt there are many RV owners who would prefer the noisier fans. Guess they figure it's an additional revenue stream. It would be nice too if Entegra and the other coach makers would order future product with the quiet fan.

Hope your trip is going well and fires and weather have not been an issue.

Mike,
Do you have the specifications of the washer? I'm planning on installing the fans.

I took the one washer off of the fan unit, went to ACE Hardware (great selection of nuts bolts) and matched up a washer. I used the original one then put a nylon 1/8 inch washer on top of that one. That gave me enough clearance. The other alternative was to loosen the 3 nuts that hold on the motor and raise them 1/8 but the nylon washer worked. Pat a lot of people did not need a washer so you may not need one. The opening of the washer may be a 7/16, if you have the replacement fan in hand you can go by that.

Read Voltdoc, if you don't put a washer his fan wobbled. I had clearance issues that is why I put the washer on.

I can really tell the difference when the coach is in one of my storage bays or my shop and running the A/C. It is worth the retro fit.
