Replaces a damaged fan motor on your RV range hood or roof vent. If replacing an older model motor, a new fan blade (sold separately) is also required. Fits Ventline P, S0721, B, and T Series range hoods and Ventadome or Vanair roof vents.
This fan motor can replace older, obsolete motors. However, older fan blades won't fit on the new motor; so, if you are replacing an older motor, you should order a new, compatible fan blade with your replacement motor. To determine whether you have an old or new motor, measure the length of the motor from end to end (excluding shafts and mounting hardware, measuring just the case.) If the motor measures 2", it is an older motor, and the fan blade should be replaced with the motor. A new motor measures 1-1/2" in length.
The following diagram shows the placement of the motor in Ventline roof vent model V2119:

Today we're going to be taking a look at the vent line replacement 12-volt D/C fan motor. Part number BBD0218-00. To help us out with our install, we're going to be using a female spade terminal connector, part number DW01899-1. This is going to be a direct replacement for the fan motor on your Ventline Ventadome, and Vanair roof vents. Model numbers V2094, V2119, and finally VP-143. Over time, fan motors can burn out.
This will allow you to replace the van motor without replacing the whole assembly. If you're replacing an older model fan motor, you may need to pick up a new fan. You can find that with part number BVD0215-00. It's a one-point-two amp, 13.6 volt D/C motor, and it runs off your RV's power. I've got a vent assembly here today. We'll go ahead and show you how to replace the van motor.
All you're going to need is a Philip's head screwdriver, and some crimpers. Inside your RV, all you need to do is remove your screen, we've got these little tabs that we can push out on, and it just pops up. We'll set that aside. Then, we can just pull off the fan. It's pressure-fit, so you may have to give it a good tug. It can help to maneuver it back and forth as you're pulling on it, then it just pops off.
Then we can just remove the two screws holding our motor in place. Then, we can remove the motor from the mount. We'll bring it around and turn it over, and then disconnect our wires. Now, you may or may not need to replace your wires, but if you do, the kit comes with two. On one end, we've got three sauntered spade terminals that connect to your motor. On the other end, the black wire, you'll need to provide your own female spade terminal.
To replace the wires, you can either leave this tray assembly in place, or you can take it off, which will make it a lot easier. If you end up taking it off, you'll need your Philip's head screwdriver. Let's go ahead and take that knob on off. With it loose, just pull up, set that aside. For our tray here on each one of these ends, all we have to do is kind of squeeze it together and it pops right off. We've got some teeth that it connects to on either side, and we can simply turn it over and it's a lot easier to work with. Now, for our switch, one wire will be connected to our RV's power. The other wire is the one that runs to the motor. This is the one that you'll need to replace. Add on the new spade terminal, crimp it down, and then reconnect it. The white wire is run to the ground in our RV. You might have to disconnect it to replace it. Now, let's put the motor back in. Now, if your model is a little bit different than ours, it comes with a mounting plate and some hardware, but we won't be needing that. We'll just take our new motor, then we'll want to connect our wires. It's got a red dot here for the power side, which is going to be our black. Clip It on, like so, and then we'll do the same for our ground. Then, we can take the motor, we'll line it up with the holes here. Then, we can either reinstall our old screws if they fit, or take our new screws and put those in. Now we can reinstall our fan. Now, the fan just simply pushes in place. Before we install our screen, it's a good idea to test it out. Works great! With our screen back in lace, we're all set. That's going to complete our look at the Ventline replacement 12-volt D/C fan motor. Part number BVD0218-00.

Etrailer.com has the fan motor and fan blade that local retailers do not, and they provide excellent support which, in this case, was crucial. They looked at the photos I sent of the old motor and disintegrated fan from my 30-year-old1985 Lance Model 300 8'6" camper and decided the BVD0218 motor and BVD0215 fan would work; we could not ID the old motor manufacturer, so it was anybody's guess - my old motor may have been for a Jenson, but the replacement cost twice as much, expensive for potluck. The parts arrived lickety-split and I was able to find instructions for the install (I know nothing about electrical); the template was a brain-teaser until I came upon an explanation of how to screw the template into the old motor's holes and drill through the template's new holes. In all it took about 2½ hours including set-up and clean-up mostly because the mounting bracket from the old motor did not work with the new motor. When the template was placed over the old bracket to show where to drill the new holes, the template's new screw holes were in the middle of a large opening in the middle of the old bracket – sucking air. Rather than make an entirely new bracket I opted for modifying the old bracket by grinding into the back of the opening far enough to accommodate the much smaller new motor and have metal on each side for the new screw holes (see diagram). That done we replaced the wires leading from the old motor with the wires from the new motor using crimp connectors and turned on the switch – the new motor ran just fine (the crimp connectors were something of a small adventure as we do not have a crimping tool; had to use ordinary pliers, place a wire between the cutting edges at the bottom of the pliers jaw and squeeze just so much – too much and we’d cut through the connector, which we did once). Attached the fan and reassembled the vent and tested again and then cleaned up everything. Can’t imagine how the work would have gone if some hired handyman had done it. After it was all over we were feeling pretty chipper for a while, having installed my very first (and hopefully last) electric exhaust fan. The first photo illustrates the juxtaposition of the old bracket and the template. The next photo is of the instructions from Ventline I downloaded from eTrailer.com. The last two photos are of the old motor and fan. 228709

The kit had been opened and resealed with tape but all parts were inside. I had talked with Ventline about buying my 5th wheel new in 2007 and the fan blade had deteriorated. They told me I needed the new BVD0218-00 motor and BVD0215-00 fan blade. Turns out the motor in the RV was BVD0218-00 and only needed a replacement fan blade. I should have taken the motor off and looked at it to begin with. I now have a spare motor should I need it in the future. 100752
We ordered 3 vent fan blades, 2 fan switches, and 3 fan motors for our travel trailer. One set was to replace an existing vent fan motor and blades. The repair was straightforward and required no additional parts. The other two sets (blades, switch, and motor) were new installation in existing vents in a 2005 camper. We were happy to be able to find parts at etrailer.com that would fit the crossbars and vent screens currently in place so that we didn't have to change those out. We did have to go to an automotive supply store for wire connectors so that we could connect the new fans to the wiring in the ceiling. Our only concern is that the new motors attach to the mounting bracket with only one screw, and then the bracket attaches to the crossbar with only one screw. On the fan where we replaced parts, both the motor and the bracket are attached with two screws. We hope that the new fans will help us manage the interior temperature of the camper more easily. 271770

The bathroom exhaust stopped working on our RV last time out so I ordered a new motor (and fan since I damaged it during disassembly). The motor (and fan) is a perfect fit, order was received when promised and best price! (Nearly $50 locally vs $XX... delivered) Only complaint is there was an excessive amount of room in the box with very little "stuffing" and the motor tore loose from the package inside the box. Very minor issue since the product was not damaged but I believe it was luck that prevented the motor from damaging the (plastic) fan. With more secure packing for shipping, I would definitely give 5 stars, thanks etrailer. 309484

I wanted a vent fan for my small RV bathroom, but didn't want to compromise the currently waterproof seal of the existing roof vent. So, I bought these pieces and made up a new plate to mount the motor to the existing metal crosspiece. I got power from the nearby ceiling light and mounted a pull chain switch in the ceiling. Not the easiest job in the world, but it beat tearing the old vent off the roof. Re: the components - I only used the motor and wiring harness. The motor is surprisingly powerful, given its size and does a nice job spinning the fan blade. I think it will move quite a bit of air. 304621
the motor was the exact replacement,and all i had to do was install two new screws 206936
QUICK SERVICE. EASY TO INSTALL. WORKS LIKE NEW BECAUSE IT IS. 223331
Fan blade and motor were as described and delivered in a timely manner. The only problem I had was that as part of replacing an older motor, it was necessary to use a supplied template to drill new holes for the new motor. This template was supposed to come with 'thread cutting' screws that were to be used to attach the template to the existing motor frame in order to facilitate the drilling. The screws supplied were not 'thread cutting', and were useless. Fortunately, I had some good quality screws of my own, and using these, the job was complete in less than a half hour. 189534

I am surprised by how much smaller this motor is than the one it is replacing. It makes me wonder about its durability. We'll see. The old motor lasted 14 years. The template provided made installation easy, though if I had followed the directions rigidly, the final drilled 1/8" diameter holes would have penetrated the inner diameter of the mount bracket on my vent, requiring re-fabrication of the bracket. As it was, the 3/32" diameter pilot holes were sufficient for mounting the new motor. All's well that ends well. 105918

I have to say, I was skeptical about ordering something online because I usually just go to the local RV store and get what I need there. That being said, parts like a fan motor they would have to order anyway so I took a chance and ordered it myself from e trailer and was pleasantly surprised !! The saleslady was extremely helpful, and very thorough as there are 6 different motors for my fan. In the end I got the right fan motor and had a great experience and I would definitely order from them again. 156976

The picture of the motor and componets is correctly displayed as to what I received. At first I thought the metal plate was for a different mounting bracket as the mounting holes are spaced different for the replacement motor. This could not work as there is no hole for the motor shaft so I figured that the plate is for a hole drilling template to be able to properly drill two small holes in the vent cross bracket for attaching the new motor. I'm not sure what the extra screws were for. 51526

The original bathroom vent fan in my new to me 1994 Jayco 224SL had been working fine until one day when I turned it on and the fan blades self destructed and pieces went everywhere. The old fans have changed and I needed both a motor and new blades. This motor assembly and the BVD0215-00 replacement fan blade were easy to install. The price was right and everything arrived quickly. I also ordered two new roof vent covers (BV0554-01) to replace the originals that were brittle. 275771

Tried to get the fan motor locally but no one had it and could not order it. They tried to sell me a larger motor that would require me to modify the fan. I googled the part number and found it at etrailer.com. The price was excellent so I ordered it. My order was processed quickly and I received it within a week. I just installed it today and the fan works great again. I will use etrailer.com again and will recommend them to my friends. 128708

the product came exactly as ordered along with a short video via email on how to install the fan motor the service person I was in contact with by the name of Jennifer was terrific very helpful in completing the order with me she was knowledgable professional and a great asset to etrailer.com will certainly purchase any products from etrailer again thankyou to all etrailer staff for the great service you provided Larry H 345905

It was the exact replacement motor for stove exhaust hood. I had trouble finding a replacement until I found etrailer on the web. The price was also much less than I thought it would be. I have replaced this motor once before from an RV parts store in Florida and the etrailer motor was half the price. And the delivery time was fast. I will use them in future when I need a part. I am very pleased with etrailer. 140220

I ordered this item to replace the motor on my bathroom exhaust fan in my 2012 open range travel trailer. I ordered the motor from etrailer because of their excellent service in the past and pricing I received the motor in record time. It was exact replacement and took only about 10 minutes to complete the job thanks to etrailer for their excellent customer service. AAA plus company 318891

Not only was the page easy to find in a Google search. The product I needed was found without a bunch of bouncing around. I ordered the motor and left on a short 4 day vacation. The motor was in my mailbox when I returned and it fit perfectly in place. Highly recommend etrailer to any who need RV parts. I will be using them for any need I have. 288579

Mini motor installed exactly as described, hopefully it doesn't burn out as the $6 Radio Shack motor did, in a week. Delivered quickly even though I opted for the cheapest delivery method, which I presume was USPS because I couldn't track it as indicated in the etrailer email I received to let me know that it had shipped. Thanks for the product! 179192
I ordered this motor and fan to install in the bathroom of my RV. This motor is much smaller than the one I replaced. It runs quieter and seems just as powerful as the old outdated one. Motor and fan were easy to install thanks to the excellent communication and instructions provided by etrailer. The included template was a tremendous help. 110049

I received my bathroom overhead fan motor the other day and installed it, works great! I was worried it would not be the correct one as the motor had an updated part number but it was fine. First time dealing with etrailer.com is a homerun for me! Thank you!!! 201912

Had to relace fan motor for an RV. Fan assy. no longer available. Ordered the fan motor and blade and rebuit the assy. I had. Fit great ! 28754
by: Ken H.08/29/2013
Received the motor a day before it was projected to arrive! It was a perfect match to the 10 year old motor I replaced. Installation was a breeze; the screw holes matched up perfectly. Had the old one out and the new one in in less than 15 minutes. I highly recommend this motor for all Ventline Vent motor replacement projects. 97586
by: Phil M.09/13/2013
I have an older model Ventadome so needed to use the "drilling template". The hole orientation for the new motor mounting places one hole half into the shaft opening. It worked out OK but would have better if the template holes had been rotated slightly. Other than that, install was a snap and runs very quiet. Pleased overall. 99870
Perfect! I finally got the right product, because of eTrailers superior description, measurements and pictures. Got the wrong size from another website and the run-around from Camping World. I installed the fan motor and blade today and they work great! I'll be buying from eTrailer every time I need RV parts! 200558
My son installed this from the top side since he is lighter on a 1995 Dutchman classic 30 w/ ventline. We had to drill a motor shaft hole in the mounting bracket and replace the ends since the wiring did not match the existing blades. Motor runs quiet and new fan blade works well on it. Verdict: works but needs mods. 131178

We haven't tried to install this fan motor yet. But it looks like it has all the parts necessary and appears to be identical to the fan we are replacing. If we have any trouble, we're sure we can rely on etrailer to assist us. I see the instructions are posted below this review, so thank you in advance for that. 288905
The fan motor I bought was an exact match for the one I replaced. It went in easily and works perfectly 315117

Thank you very much for the prompt service, The product fit and work great. It was the most pleasure doing business with your company, and the friendly and concern person I spoke with, and was able to understand that person. I would definitely recommend you product and your company. John P. 43958
by: Thurman A.01/31/2017
After I figured out the instructions it was a piece of cake to install and works great. I didn't think the template for drilling the new mounting holes was clear and I saw other reviewers that were more confused than I. Once I figured it out it was obvious and worked like a charm. 337174
by: Steve L05/12/2011
Website was user friendly and easy to use. Parts were correct and good quality. All though there was a delay in shipment from the factory I was kept informed by etrailer and they expedited shipment to me as soon as they received the parts. I would not hesitate to use them again. 13686
We needed a couple of replacement skylight/vents. etrailer provided detailed product information allowing us to select the correct replacement. The customer service agent was excellent to work with and understood exactly what we needed. Etrailer, you did a great job. 154325
I can't I placed my order on a Sunday morning, and by Sunday afternoon it was on it's way!!! What an incredible turn around. My order was small and cheap, but important to me nonetheless. I never missed a beat thanks to their fast service. Thanks! 260703
Though it looked the same as i wanted to replace, it was smaller and did not fit. Had the web site shown several similar motors I would have been able to make a better decession which to buy. Thank you for fast processing and great service. 104592
Product worked as advertised in small area used the template that was provided to drill new holes for the new motor. Installed the fan that I bought to go with it as advertised and it worked great. I put it in in the bathroom ceiling vent. 247145

You have never failed to have even the most offbeat parts that I'm looking for! You're my go-to company and it saves me a lot of time browsing the web. Fast service and very competitive pricing too. Thanks, George and company! 179111
If you have an older van air vent, this is not a direct replacement. It is a bit smaller and does not fit the bracket, but with a few modifications it will work just fine. Still very pleased with the price and quick shipping 282877
This part was exactly the same as the old motor, in as far as I could tell. It was easy to install and works as intended. The best part of this however was Etrailer. Great price and lightning fast shipping. Patrick 222763
by: John R10/14/2013
Fit like a glove. Was easy to install also. Would recommend to by the blade as the one I took off looked ok but was starting to deteriorate. Great service and fast shipping. Communication is the best you will find!!!!! 103721
I needed a new electric motor for my bathroom exhaust fan. The on-line catalog made it easy to identify the correct replacement. I was able to easily order it and it came very quickly. Great job ! 303564
by: Bill H.01/30/2013
Was exactly as pictured. Which is what I wanted, so it was an exact match to the motor I was replacing. Quick and low cost shippingmwasmalso appreciated. Thanks etrailer, made it easy to replace! 64601
It is thepart I needed. It has the splined shaft which was not listed in the description so it took a little longer to find. Everything else was great and Anna S. was a big help. Thank you. 143210
Motor wears out after 4 months. Have tried to contact venting with concerns, but to no avail. E-trailers have always been on my side and keep in contact. E-trailers is the way to go. 219891

The parts for my vent fan fit perfectly. Your website made that possible by describing the item's in great detail. Shipping was quick. Will shop again with your company in the future. 193389

Quick install and hook up, works fine. I hope it lasts as long as the motor it replaced - over 10 years service as a ventilation fan in a diamond plate truck mounted dog kennel. 203767
Outstanding service and shopped out fast. New fan motor has been in operation for a year now and no problems at all. Very easy to install and more power than original fan motor. 291168
