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.
Thanks Cathy you are also right about the bath window too which we also have . Ours just slides up and down so we can put the wand in there . First I thought we would get the awning one like in our kitchen but now I am glad it slides up and down . Anyone need that inspection camera it came from Harbor freight and you can use 20 % coupon which made it pretty reasonable . Chris R and Escape told me they did it without the camera but this looks pretty neat and I asked for and was happy to get it . Well will need to finish what I am doing at the moment then I will get to Escape fan mod . Pat

Pat, lucky for you that you can get the wand in there. I think someone has been known to remove the screw on a 21'.

I also purchased the fan kit from ETI but have not had time to install it yet. Looks straightforward just need to have a day to lay with it.

All this rain revealed a minor leak in my bathroom vent. I want to replace it, but it sounds like the only suitable option is to order the custom flange from ETI. Does their cost include the Ventline fan, or just the flanges?

The the whole kit includes besides the flanges , the fan also . You only will need the proflex or similar and some wire . Pat

I received the fan conversion kit last week and got it installed today. Everything was pretty straight forward, except that I was surprised that ETI pre drilled the holes in the roof flange. Most of the holes don't align with the existing roof holes. My solution was to drill new holes in the flange rather than in the roof of the trailer.

I need to still get my done . Right now ,my toilet is apart to put in shut off valve . I can't use the plex under dinette , too short so I need to put inside shower . What way did you hook up to power ? From shower light , like Chris R or someone else ran new run down to converter box , with a fuse . Pat another Q easiest way to line up your holes instead of making new ones ?

I don't think there is any other way except to drill new holes. It wasn't too bad though. I think I got about 6 of them to align, the rest I just had to make bigger. Only on two of them I had to drill completely separate holes.

I routed power from the bathroom light where it goes through the closet wall. There is plenty of room to pass the wires above the stall. I'll try to get a pic up soon.

Daubsy sounds much better . I got a little worried I would have to make a lot of new holes. I think I will also use bath light . Definitely would like any pics .Are you saying you didn't remove your bath light and bring wires over top down to light ? Or getting your power from backside of closet ? I had asked Escape and they just run it across and down to light . Chris R. had just made wiring hole for light a little bigger to make it easier and caught it . Pat
