At the time Chris R. fixed his on his 17B , there was no other solution except replace with another 9 in . So Chris came up with a solution . Anyway mine arrived last night from Escape . I feel for the whole solution fix it is well worth it . I am posting picture just in case anyone else wants to change their 9 in out . Pat
I can see a bath fan in my future. Post pics of the install Pat.

Hi Tech fan . See my reply to Jubal . My cost was 250 plus 17 for shipping . However I used my American Express and I was billed 200 total because of the exchange rate I guess . With shipping and the best price you can find the fan plus shipping would be 80-90 or more . You are getting your holes already cut out and those white pieces are fiberglass . They also supplied my screws . If you look on the piece for outside it has a bump to install your fan on . And You get Escape help too . Got a call today to make sure I was on the right track . So I am very happy . Didn't realize about that 9 in until going home and rain dropped on my head when I opened a little . Pat

This is great. I've been conjuring up ways to home-brew this installation ever since selling our Casita (which had one as standard equipment) and getting the Escape.

Are the square mounting flanges provided by the manufacturer of the fan or by ETI ?

Jubal Escape manufactured the white fiberglass inside and outside flanges ,including cutting your holes and drilling the holes . Having the bump for the fan will help from water getting in even though it is a shower . Pat

We will see . But I will definely share . Pat
Also the outside piece is 1/8 in thick fiberglass . However, the inside piece is 1/4 thick fiberglass . Pat

Hey Pat
Thanks for the information. What are the length and width dimensions of the outside flange ? Are the dimensions the same as the OE vent flange ?
