No disagreement - I just passed on the eTrailer note because it was relevant. If that note is not really applicable to the Ventline Vanair, that's good.

Good luck, and do post some photos.
It appears that the 12" flange adapter is only available from ETI. I do not know if the holes in the 12" flange are the same as those in the OE flange, maybe Pat can compare them.The OE flange is 11 1/2" square. The raised fiberglass surface is 12" square. The 12" flange will have to be sealed with butyl tape or some other sealing tape.
Pat it is easier to read 12" rather than 12 in in your posts.

Jubal I will be using trailer soon ,that is when I will do this changeout providing it is not raining or extreme wind ,as soon as I get home . Escape said the outside piece matches my holes . The inside I am to just drive screws in ( that piece is heavier 1/4 inches .) On the outside piece you use butyl tape ,after you have removed and cleaned up everything first . Seal the screws heads as before with pro flex. Inside before you screw up that piece caulk piece , put it up , that will help hold . and screw it up the fan is heavier then the 9 in . I am going to follow Chris 's mod ,widen the bath light wiring hole , put a wire up there and hope it comes out the 9 in roof hole . Add my 2 wires to wire and pull it through . Hopefully first try . Will take pics when I do this . Pat

Doug because of weather right now I have not attempted yet . It looks pretty straight forward and I can't wait . For Christmas I got a inspection camera that will help getting those wires across shower roof and down to light . Or if easier wires up from light ,there is a hook on inspection camera to grab and pull wire over to opening . I'm probably not getting it done until March or April . I am in the middle of another project in house right now . Also need to get my bearings done before I go camping . Trailer is covered right now . I promised to take pics too. Someone on the Escape forum has this factory mod on their roof . Maybe the factory did it . When I ordered ,my credit card did the exchange so it came out 25 % less then the billing from Escape . Those 9 in are very expensive and hard to find ,and you have to remove the whole thing if you have a problem not just the lid like the 14 in vents . Hope this helps . Pat

Our new 9" vent was in stock at an RV place we used. They just picked it off of the shelf. I think I have seen them by mail order also but an RV place should be able to order one. I would say it was less than $40 maybe.

Why would you want to replace with the same which by the way yellows badly too. The new powered vent, everything on it is replaceable . The 9 in also because it doesn't have a removable screen gets debris up there . We just missed Escape getting rid of the 9 in . I can't wait to get mine installed .Even in a 1992 camper , bath had a powered vent ,which help dry out bath after using . Pat

You are right. We would not want it again but were not aware of the powered vents at the time, not until later when we heard about them on the 21'. We replaced the 9" one on the 19' and had someone else do it, so that was the easiest thing we could have had done. No telling what they would have done had we known about any other vents.

We also have the window and would not do without that. Air into the window and out the vent. (We wanted the window also for using the wand but can't go through it with the wand due to screen screw.)

Yes, the new powered vent is a nice improvement.
