2006 2075 exhaust fan replacement

Hello
I purchased a 2006 2075 trailer last fall. We love the trailer and the Sunline brand. It replaced our 1986 1550. One of my only complaints at this time is how noisey the bathroom exhaust fan is. I would like to change it out for a nicer fan such as a fann tastic fan or something similar with 3 speed and intake/exhaust option. Do I have to totally remove the old fan from the roof or is there a way to fit something to the existing housing? I would rather not touch the roof membrane if i don't have to. If I had to work on the roof membrane is it very difficult to remove the old fan and replace it with a new unit? I would appreciate any input on this matter.
I have been reading forums on this site for a couple of years and I think that this is a great place for Sunline owners to keep in touch and keep the sunline products rolling.

Thanks Chris

I installed one of these http://www.maxxair.com/Products/Turbo-Maxx.aspx. Just remove the small fan blade and motor and tie the wires to the new fan. Love the turbo/max fan.

Do not put an "intake" fan on the bathroom vent There is a vent pipe for the black tank on the roof and an intake fan will draw odors from the black tank into the trailer.

Here is a link to JohnB's replacement of a vent:

MaxxAir's TurboMaxx fastens to the existing roof vent. There is no messing with the existing membrane or the mounting of the existing roof vent. The Turbo Maxx mounts the same way that the regular MaxxAir vents do: there are 4 small brackets that you bolt to the frame of the existing roof vent, and then the TurboMaxx is fastened to those brackets. You have to drill 4 small holes in the existing roof vent frame, but it's an easy job.

If you follow the link over to the TurboMaxx web page, there is a link there to read the installation instructions.

I have the ShurFlo exhaust only fan in the bathroom and it is totally awesome. At less than half speed with an open bath window, it completely evacuates the bathroom air while I shower. On top of that, if I keep both bathroom doors closed with the A/C on in the coach, the A/C is not affected. In short, I love it!

I would also recommend a large Maxx Air cover over this fan to use if it rains.

I like the Maxx Air vent as long as it fits around your roof vents. It serves as both a fan and a cover for the vent if it rains. You already have the power so installation should take no more than an hour. Heed the note on intake though or your fan could be sniffing the black water vent. Not a good thing.

I'd second the TurboMaxx for its pulling power and quietness.

I think we wasted the money when we first got out 2499 and opted for the Fan-Tas-Tic fan with the rain sensor and thermostat. $300 and once you put a MaxxAir cover over it, the rain sensor is useless and who uses the thermostat?

If I could do it again, I'd have 3 TurboMaxx fans on all of our openings.

We've had our TurboMaxx for going on 3 years now and use it almost every single day. One of the bushings in the motor was starting to go out and it was squealing a bit keeping us up at night.

I contacted MaxxAir and had a new motor shipped to me underwarranty within a few days and am back to being a happy camper.

I agree about the thermostat. I opted to not get that option since I dry camp mostly and want control of when the fan comes on. I think if I had power it would be nice but that's what AC's are for or even just the AC fan if we don't have 15amps. I have a maxx air cover over the bathroon vent and use the fan that came with the camper.

2006 T-2075 exhaust fan

I want to thank everyone for their feedback.
I think I will look into the Maxxair with no t-stat.

ppl's rv parts has them on sale now for $193.69. This looks like a very good price. I hope shipping isn't to crazy.

Thanks again
Chris

Open the bathroom window a few inches before turning on the fan. Problem solved.

Worth the $$ (TurboMaxx)

I can attest to the great air flow that I got in my older Nomad. Many nights, did not even need the air condition because the fan took the hot air right out through the roof vent and drawed cool air in from the windows. It provided a nice breeze flowing through the camper, making for great spleeping conditions!

I just bought one for my Sunline and will be installing it this weekend before heading to the Poconos this next week (Otter Lake). I purchased the one with a thermostat for around $240.00. The thermostat kept things from getting too cold in the middle of the night when the outside cools down.

The fan also works great to get the steam from cooking out of the trailer so the windows don't steam up. For some odd reason, Sunline thought that the very small fan in the bathroom would work for an exhaust fan instead of installing a vented range hood. They were wrong! The fantastic fan solved that problem. One just needs to open the window over the sink so it pulls the air across the stove and out.
