Ventline Accessories and Parts - BVD0218-00

Replaces a damaged fan motor on your Ventline Ventadome or Vanair RV roof vent for motor homes and enclosed trailers.


  • Replaces the fan motor on Ventline Ventadome and Vanair model roof vents
  • Works with Ventline Ventadome and Vanair roof vent models V2094, V2119 and VP-543
  • Motor output: 1.2 amps at 13.6 Volts DC

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:

The following diagram shows the placement of the motor in Ventline roof vent model VP-543:

by: James10/01/2015 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 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


Thank you Patrick, my exhaust fan is humming right along. I have bookmarked for future use.

It stopped working and I had to replace it. It should have lasted longer than a couple of months.

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

by: Ed P.08/13/2012

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

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 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 again and will recommend them to my friends. 128708

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

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

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

by: Turlock2A06/04/2015

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

by: Mike05/19/2014

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

But this blade will not fit the old motor so the motor will also need to be replaced with # BVD0218-00. For a cover you can use # BV0554-01 if the vent was made before 2008 (which your should be since it is for a 1995 Holiday Rambler) or # BVD0449-A01 for a wedge style.
