The other day I noticed someone bought a roll up shade to cover their Fantastic on an email group I subscribe to. They installed a pull the shade so the light coming thru would not bother them while sleeping. They paid $$$ for it! Fantastic does offer a white dome that does not let light in however sometime light is good:). If using a cover--just make sure you remove it before using the fan:).
Today while sitting here between shipping , orders and emails. I looked at a vent and its configuration. I looked at clear plastic package container that once housed $55.00 worth of HP deskjet printer ink. I have thrown out many plastic display packages, you know the ones--you can't open them without hurting your self , using a sledge hammer or with scissors:). Some are so nice and clear that I cut them up to fit in my sandblasting visor! Oh well here is my project.
I cut into my HP package with scissors, cutting 4 pieces about
1" wide by 1 1/4" long and rounded the ends. . I found my paper hole
punch and punched holes approx. 1/4 from the end centered. I sanded the edges of
the pieces of plastic for safety purposes with some 220-- they can be sharp and
you might cut yourself--so be careful!!
Here is what one looked like.
Next I found a piece of cardboard at least 12 x12" and my compass, set the compass at 5 3/4", drew a circle and cut with scissors above.
Next I went into my RV and removed 4 screws on the screen ring of the Fantastic being sure the ones I removed would be perpendicular to each other. I placed my plastic HP pieces into each hole with the screws. Since the screws are self tapping be gentle putting them back in so you have less chance of stripping them. The HP pieces actually formed very nicely into the countersunk holes on the screen ring. Here is what you get!
The tabs hold the cardboard cover in place nicely, its easily removed and replaced but you have one more thing to put somewhere.
Painting it would make it even nicer.
The other thing that is a nice idea that has worked for some people is to the use of Fantastics to help locate leaks in your RV. Close all known leakage holes and windows. Turn the cab heater blower on high, all Fantastics on intake or other vents on intake and put soap suds on the area you suspect is leaking. Some have fixed their leaks this way depending upon size of Rv. If you have a large RV you probably would be better off using an electric yard leaf blower ,renting a blower, using a furnace blower and adapting whatever one to an open window using cardboard and tape to make it leak proof. Here come the bubbles!
Use at your own risk!
