Is there a 10x10 inch power vent available?

I got spoiled by the 6" round Van-air power vent I put in my other trailer's bathroom. I am wondering if someone makes a 10x10" one that would fit in the Escape? I take it this 10x10 is an older size RV vent. Looks like this:

Hi: memobug... Matt; Our 5.0 has a round, smoke covered, popup, 12V. powered vent in the bathroom. You could call Escape and ask what brand they use. I thought the 19'er used the same one? Alf

Yep, that's the VanAir 6" round pop up power vent, like I installed in my other trailer, I expect. The Escape 19s, at least in 2009 has a 10" square tilt up, like in the link above, probably for better passive ventilation. The problem is that you can't really leave it open in the rain. And there's no power option I can find.

Donna, the computer fan could work - it seems like you need a shroud to get decent airflow.

Regards,

Matt

When I was at the Escape Factory choosing the options for my Escape 19, I requested a powered bathroom vent like the 5.0 has. I was told that there is not enough clearance between the top of the bathroom and the roof to install one.

At first I wondered about a fan in the bath, but realized that the one in our last trailer rarely got used. I find just opening the vent a bit will quickly eliminate any vapour or odours. If in campgrounds we tend to use the showers and toilets there except night time trips. In the bush there are usually lots of trees.

Hi: All...Ahaa!!! Now I know what the outdoor shower's for. So I don't vaporize the bathroom!!! Doh. No wonder it's located on the "Dark side of the MOON. Alf

I've been poking around the web looking, but the best I could come up with is this: http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...classNum=10666
