Has anybody ever installed fans in their enclosed trailer?
saw a framer i know had a fan on the roof vent blowing air out, kept it pretty cool. He also has a tv, dvd, mini fridge, and microwave. Although nothing is ran from the trucks power, he has a plug on the outside that he plugs in at the job site, it was originally just to power the big air compressor
couldnt you put a car like battery at the tongue of the trailer and rig something up that way...never seen it but it would be nice
All of the newer trucks have the 7 pin plugs, 1 of those pins is hot power straight from the truck battery. You could wire it from the trailer plug to the fan and as long as you're plugged into a truck, you've got power to the fan.
I was told by my trailer dealer that it was a BAD idea to put an electric fan in my vent on top my enclosed trailer. He told me that it MAY cause the trailer to catch fire...Didn't ask to much more after he told me that.
I not going to put them in the vent, I thinking about getting a couple of fans and mounting them to my shelves in the front of the trailer.
I was wondering what would be the best way to power them. I was thinking of wiring them into the 12 volt dome lights in the trailer. Then, if I wanted the fans on just flip on the light switch.
Would this work?
Please be very careful with fans and lights in enclosed lawn trailers. The vapor created through the evaporation of "One Teaspoon" of gasoline could blow that trailer to tiny pieces . . .
I don't see how a fan would be any more dangerous than say, hot mufflers in an enclosed trailer with fumes.
Maybe a fan designed for a marine application, made for blowing dangerous fuel fumes out of the engine room. look at the local marine supply store.
a hot muffler is not going to ignite the fumes, that would take a spark or for the muffler to be RED hot.
