I bought one of these (not from this source). I'll be installing it when it warms up a bit around here.

That looks good! I assume there is room in the fan for that? How would you wire that (four wires) into the fan (two wires)?

Thats kinda like me saying "when it quits raining here"


2011 Work and Play 30WR. Added 2nd AC, four deep cycle batteries.

Two of those four wires are for power, the other two go to the fan. If the box won't fit in the fan assy, I'll simply place it in the void beside the vent and lengthen the wires a bit.

And it is lot like saying that. I'm all for global warming in this neck of the woods.

Surprised about that. The Vortex is about fitting the existing vent and not a particular trailer brand? Does the Montana have a different kind of roof vent other than the standard Jensen, Elixir or Ventline?

Has anyone installed the 90043-CR on a 2011 Montana (keystone product)?

I just called Hengs Industries customer service and they said it will not fit our camper.

i used a dimmer switch sold in the ppl catalog to control the speed of the fan. works good with this fan and i can reduce some of the noise. very happy with this upgrade

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but try this thread, about page 2, poster nadkaw1957.
