Additional Information
Upgrade your old, inefficient powered vent easily without replacing the entire vent or disturbing the rooftop seal.

Just replace the existing screen and small 12-volt fan with the Vortex fan kit to turn your roof vent into a powerful ventilation system. This kit upgrades your present powered roof vents into a powerful high velocity air movement system in just minutes. The Vortex I is a single speed fan.

Installation is easy with only a Phillips head screwdriver! Just take out the current screen, garnish and motor and replace it with the Vortex system. Non-powered vents can be converted with additional wiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fan. Moves much more air Very nice fan. Took about 2 hours to remove old and install new. Had problem getting fan wires out of the way of the blades. Finally removed ceiling light fixture near the fan and was able to pull slack out of fan wires through that hole. Also 2 screws that hold fan assembly in place need to be installed with one hand while holding fan assembly up with the other. The screws kept falling off driver to the floor. I ended up using a small piece of electrical tape to hold the screws to the driver tip. A second pair of hands would have made the job easier or a magnetic tip. Some reviews said fan is noisy. I did not find this to be so. Sure it is slightly louder than my old fan but it moves a lot more air. Noise will not be a problem for me. Great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Harder than advertised If your older fan is a Heng's with a metal electrical box, It is a nightmare to install as you have to destroy the metal box that is welded to the central support to be able to install it. The brand on my Vortex was by Heng's but the instructions are for all brands other than Heng's. After many hours of work (and I am a Handy man) I managed to get it to work. It is effective but it uses 2.3 Amps instead of the .85 Amps of the old one but I can live with that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good air movement, noisy fan Replacing the existing fan with the Vortex required some work-arounds not covered in the installation instructions (i.e.: needing to break some spot welds where the instructions call for screw removal). Once those issues were solved, installation was fairly straight forward and the fit is good. The fan does move a lot more air than the unit it replaced. The fan is fairly noisy. It can be heard in the camper even with the bathroom door closed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. Easy to install Shipping was slow, but it works great and was pretty easy to install. It's not great quality...cheap Chinese plastic, but it serves the purpose. The instructions were really bad and had obviously been photocopied hundreds of times...couldn't even read them. Pretty hilarious that Vortex takes so little pride in their product, but you can easily install this fan without the instructions, so just throw them away and avoid the annoyance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bath rm. Vortex replacement fan Upgrade This is fairly easy to complete, I have installed it and happy with the exhaust fan. it is a vortex fan with many blades to move the air, making it little louder, though it is worth it, so we don't have to go up on the roof of the rig and remove the vent portion. I recently added another 12volt fan AirMax in the bed room from Camping World. Yes I would order another Vortex fan if needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Square peg in a round hole I stumbled upon this product looking for a replacement fan blade. I originally wanted the one that would bring air inside as well as the standard fan of pushing the air out. For direction of the air, and the 2 extra speeds I couldn't justify the the unnecessary price difference. I decided to go with the single direction one speed " upgrade kit" As far as being specific asbout what specific models it will fit it was a guessing game. They simply state it works for "older" Ventlinei, Elixir, etc..installing was almost effortless once I found somewhere it would fit. I purchased it for my '91 NuWa Hitchhiker. For some reason it wouldn't line up with the crank handle, and the existing trim ring was square, where the fan assembly has rounded corners. I was pretty disappointed, but found a home for it on my '85 Class C Motorhome... Still wish I could have one of these in my 5th wheel. They sure do move some air.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very loud Very easy to install. When the fan was turned on it is very loud. The motor spins very fast so I don't anticipate lasting very long. Over all, I would not recommend unless a speed controller is added. It doesn't seem like a very good design to move more air. It just has a very high speed motor, which is loud.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vortex replacement vent fan This is supposed to be a direct replacement for your bathroom vent fan. Upon trying to install it I found it took about 2 hours of frustrating work to accomplish. After I finally got it installed with a few modifications it works as stated. My 3 star rating is for the problems to get it installed.
