19' bathroom ceiling vent

Hi, has anyone ever modded the ceiling vent in the 19' bathroom? Power fan? Different vent cover? What have you? Thanks! j

We have just the regular non powered type, and have never felt the need for having a fan. Only a few times have we even cracked it to help dry out the bath, otherwise 99% of the time it was closed.

ditto for us. Also, we tend to open the window in the bath rather than the roof vent (no real reason, that is just what we do).

That Escape 19 vent was one of the reasons I upgraded to the 21, I could never find a replacement vent cover. I think it is mad overseas (heng) is the manufacturer. Anyway, it is in the bath so any leaks would be moot.

We open both the window and the vent. Don't know why it's just what we do. I guess it's because we have the new slider window and it don't seem to open that much. Seems to dry out the bath fast with the Maxx fan on.

If we used the shower more, a fan might be handy. We don't have a window, it was not offered at the time. Don't miss one at all though.

My wife keeps asking for a fan, dunno how I would hook it up if I found one. I guess off the light circuit in the forward overhead.

But a window sounds nice, as we had one in the Casita. Convenient for using a hose to flush tanks too.

Anyone added a window after the fact?

Sounds like a road trip to Chilliwack, maybe get some other "nice to have" options. The bath window with the filing vent will do what the fan would do and will let in a lot more light. Perhaps another window in the kitchen? I contemplated on getting the door window replaced with the opening window Escape installs now in the bath, I believe it is the same size and would be nice at night to leave open for cooling.

If I do that I want a bigger black tank too. Not sure that is possible, or perhaps I should say affordable.

We have a window over the kitchen sink, is that what you mean by another window in the Kitchen?

Yes, is it opening?
The larger black tank seems like a lot of effort, have you ever used one of those portable tanks. The black tank is inside under the toilet and extends under the dinette seat, fairly protected from freezing in the winter. I have used those portable tanks, work real well. I also try to use the public facilities as much as possible to keep my internal tanks use to a minimum.
