Have a fantastic fan in bathroom, should be from 2004 when the trailer was built.. My motor stopped working about 6 weeks ago. The lift motor was a 17 RPM motor. I called dometic and they sent me another motor but it was a 7RPM motor, same everything just the RPMS different..
Called them and they sent me another replacement one (supposedly the right one) and just got it and AGAIN its the 7RPM motor.
QUESTION, will the 7 RPM lift motor work and is there much of a difference between a 7 and 17 RPM to lift the dome?? will it just take longer or faster???
asked tech support at dometic and they could not give me a answer.
Thanks again for any suggestions.

Slower motor slower operation. MIGHT have more lifting power. You'll be the first to know [emoticon]

Here on Amazon is the 17 RPM motor. Either one will work, but I recall reading somewhere that the wiring colors are reversed. Amazon has both the 7 RPM and 17 RPM motors. Just search for "fantastic fan lift motor"
