Better Head Ventilation 101...

Postby carl » Fri Jun 01, 2018 9:58 pm

Today I installed a solar powered vent in my head, it has a rechargeable battery onboard to run night and day, it pulls 1000 cubic feet of air per hour. Not an easy project, I needed to remove all of the ceiling trim and my starboard front windows to be able to drop the ceiling panel down enough to gain access to the underside of the roof. From there you need to measure twice and cut once. For me twice was not enough, you need to be absolutely sure you will cut the 4 3/4" hole in your roof confirming the location you select for the through-deck hole does not go through any electrical wiring or other obstructions and also clear all inside trim/components as well. In my case I had six and a half inches (6 1/2") between my aluminum deck beams (roof/ceiling beams) so I needed to drill my 4 3/4" hole centered between those two beams as well as stay clear of a wiring harness running through the ceiling nearby. This install will help to keep the bathroom fresh and dry.
