Vent line exhaust fan dead


Recommended Posts

My vent line bath exhaust fan is dead on my 2018 elite 2. Now in troubleshooting mode. I can not find a fuse labeled for the fan. Next is to check power to the unit.  All that is left is a bad switch and motor.  Am I forgetting something?

The fuse is the fat part of the wiring in or near the fan assembly.  The fan is also the best place for voltage, just check on both side of the fuse.  The MaxxAir fan runs on the same circuit.  Is it working?  The thermal fuse looks like this.  And if I remember correctly, it is enclosed in shrink wrap.

Love those Mud Daubers, I've got screens on just about every air intake on the trailer, well I thought I did until the bath fan came up.

Do you have a fuse? If your in Florida, stop by.  If not, I can send you one.

If I remember correctly,  and that's possible that i don't,  there's a fuse in the body of the ventline fan that we used to have. It was buried, if I remember correctly  

Our newer maxxair dome has the fuse receptacle easily accessible. Visible and accessible from the interior.

Before I spent a ton of money and time,  repairing a ventline, I'd buy the maxxair dome, with light. We have loved it, and the additional overhead  light. 

Just a thought.

We paid around $70 for this one, a few years ago. You may be able to find it on another sight, for a lesser price.

We bedded with synthetic butyl, went around with loctite marine, and have been very happy.

Easier to clean than our original Ventline. 

none of these are perfect . But...

We love the overhead light.
