    Looking for a 12 volt fan

    I want to purchase a 12 volt fan for our Aspen Century. I have looked @ the most popular ones on Amazon including the fan/Led combos. The reviews are basically the same. Does anyone have any experience/recommendations for them?

    I have 2 (10 inch) O2 fans. Will run off AC or batteries I love them. They got good reviews from many from this board

    I ordered mine from Bath, & Beyond, (No shipping costs) They will deliver to your door. There are several different models.

    The Fantastic stand alone fan is probably one of the best out there, depending on your needs. I have a roof mounted Fantastic fan in a toy hauler I am building, they are hard to beat.

    Rethinking. Probably over kill for small camper. At a little over 1 amphour would depleat a cycle battery overnight.
    I have two vehicle batteries in toyhauler, so no problem.

    I second the 10" OC2 fan. It keeps our 7 x 9 tent very pleasant. The batteries last a long time. Target for under $30.

    We use the O2 cool fan also in our Aspen and it works great. We use a 22amp hour battery and it last all weekend even running it 10 hours per night.

    That is the way to go. I put a few velcro strap on mine and hang it right over the top of the bed so it's blowing right on us liek a ceiling fan.

    I tore mine apart and found the 2 speed switch is just an inline resistor. So running on low speed will not save any battery power vs full speed (full speed is a little noisy on these). Put a PWM control inside the case (or just inline of the power cord) for speed (and noise control) and then you will be saving battery power when you slow it up.
