> has anyone found anything similar that is not too loud?
> how do i find a ceiling or wall support to attach it to?
> i am assuming its not too hard to run the electric from one of the ceiling lights to the fan - correct?

It's a whole lot more money but I installed a maxxair in the roof vent which has a 12v, 3 speed fan and high capacity. It's quiet and cools the whole unit very quickly. An added bonus is that it's installed so that you can leave the vent open even when the fan is off and not worry about possible rain. It took me about 2 hours to install including the electrical.

pw - i have a fantastic fan installed in the bathroom - and i love it --- i was thinking of using the fan to circulate the air in the trailer --- we use a portable one all the time but it is a pain to store - so was hoping to put up something permanent.

i appreciate the suggestion

Auto Zone has two similar ones.

You'll probably find something similar at Wal-Mart, Target, or any other big box store with an auto accessories area.

Camping World or other large RV stores might have them, too.

Here's what I do to circulate the air with the Maxxair. It has a capacity of over 900 cu ft per minute I believe. When dry camping (no AC) and the outside air is cooler at night, I open one window at the opposite end from the fan and close the door and turn the fan on exhaust on high tor two or three minutes. That's all, the inside cools fast. You'll have a complete air change in a couple of minutes.
