Bathroom vent fan

Freedom elite 26he 2017
The fan in the vent doesn't work. Is there a switch for it somewhere?

Question

Did you check both the switch on the bathroom wall and the one on the fan itself?

My coach has a power switch at the fan that has to be "ON" but I also have a FireFly system and I use the touch display or the bathroom wall switch to turn that fan off or on.

If itís not on the fan and not on the wall in the bathroom then you have a one off problem. If it was mine Iíd be amazed but then replace the fan for about $30 from Amazon. Itís less headache than going to the dealer.

Do you have to crank it to open?
If so the switch is a button that will start the fan

On all of ours there is a wall mounted switch only

Volt meter time! Undo the screws and remove the interior piece that houses the "chimney" to the fan. You should be able to get a voltmeter on the DC wire connection. If you got 12, then you need a new fan, or perhaps a loose connection. Hardest part of changing it out is on the roof. BUT thats another thread.

Good luck

I,agree: the vent covers on mine have to be cracked open; for things to start spinning.

Posts 116 and 224 in my signature link have the $12ish parts you'll need to make it a wireless remote control fan.
You Might as well do it while you're in there I stalling the new fan, then you can put the wireless switch wherever you want to.

On our FE22, the bathroom fan was wired to the light switch and the light was wired hot (on all the time). I didn't want to spend a couple of months for warranty service on that, so I fixed it myself. I found the wiring connections behind the fan trim cover, and wired the light to the switch and the fan (which has its own switch) to the hot 12V. This was among many other things I fixed for the same reason on our new camper.
