Video Transcript for Review of Fantastic Vent RV Vent and Fan Parts - Lift Arm Assembly - FVK8011-05

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the replacement lift arm for Fantastic Vent Roof Vents. And this is just going to replace the lift arm for your Fantastic Roof Vent. And basically this component, just as the name suggests, lifts that vent up or down. So as that little catch on the bottom turns, it lowers the vent, and then raises it back up.

Does come pre-lubed, so there's some grease inside there to help that move smoothly, and also help prevent any kind of rusting and corrosion inside those gears.We do have the mounting hardware to get this installed onto our vent. So it's a pretty easy way to replace that one component if everything else is working properly. And I will say, if you have any other issues with your roof vent, like the cover is cracked or maybe the motor's bad, or something else as an issue, it might be a good idea to just invest in a whole new system. But if everything is working properly, and it's just the lift arm that got damaged somewhere along the way, this is going to get you back out on the road and operating that fan or that roof vent easily. I'm going to give you some measurements just for reference to make sure that this is going to be the right one for you.So the distance between those mounting holes, center to center is about three inches, right on.

And then the distance for that lift arm itself from that little pivot point on the end, to where it attaches in, and that pivot point at the bottom, it's about six and a quarter inches long. So that might give you an idea if this is going to be the right one for you. The depth of this component here is going to be about an inch and three quarters. Or an inch and three quarters from there to there. That's going to do it for our look at the replacement lift arm for the Fantastic Vent Roof Vent..

From ordering to delivery, etrailer made the process simple and streamlined. Thought I would have trouble finding this part for my 1995 Roadtrek Fantastic roof vent. In less than 2 weeks from looking I now have a fully functioning vent which I installed myself with the help of an instructable video they provided! Very pleased with the service and product! Thanks etrailer!

Received your fantastic fan replacement lift arm. I was able to install it in about 15 minutes. Your item was a direct match for my fan. Thanks for the fast service and for making these parts available to guys like me so we don’t have to replace the whole unit

Perfect fit her your video that was available for viewing. Received my products in a timely manner. Fair prici g. Existing lift arms were worn-out the crank handle no longer would lift the vent lid. No need to spend the money to replace the whole vent assembly when you can buy the parts and do it yourself. Saved a lot of money by doing my research. I couldn't be happier.

This replacement lift arm, was to replace the broken unit in our RV's Fan-Tastic roof vent, located in the bath. First I want to say, the unit in our bath is not the heavy duty unit with electric motor that drives the lift arm, but rather the lighter duty manual version. I ordered this arm because it is of better quality than the one that originally came in the vent. It should be noted that the little wheel at the end of the arm is on the wrong side for the manual vent, but it installed easily and the vent functions as it should. I am very happy with the function and construction of this new lift arm assembly.

Excellent source for all your RV parts.

After a year now the lift arm is working like new.

Worked great with an easy installation. The replacement version has a stop so that you cannot open it as far as the original. but I am assuming that is a design enhancement to prevent the vent from overextending.



- FVK8011-05
by:

These arms were exactly what I needed. The size seemed to be standard sizing. I used them for three different vents and all 3 fit perfectly. Shipping was fast.



- FVK8011-05

The video I found about this part was very clear and so detailed that I had no doubt it was the correct one. Web page was very user friendly. Order was shipped quickly and I received it before estimated time. It's exactly what I needed. I would give this whole process more than five stars if I could. Thanks for making it so easy.

Item arrived quickly. The shank was a little too long so my husband had to modify the slot to make the shank fit. Seems to be working great.

It is still working great!

I had tried ordering it from several different places. I even tried Camping World that supposedly has everything. Did not have to make any adjustments fit perfectly. Excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone.

Still works after a year. I am so glad I did not have to buy a new fan.

As usual the information given with size Dennison’s of the overall and distance between the mounting holes. No one else does this so you are shooting in the dark. Loved the Video is Customer service is the best.



- FVK8011-05
by:

The gear assembly required a simple modification (Fan-Tastic Fan's problem, NOT etrailers' fault), and after one year is still functioning correctly.



- FVK8011-05

Fit perfectly and quality parts.

I am giving this product a 4 because I have not installed it yet. It looks good and I assume it will work good as well.

I received my lift control arm in the mail and took it directly to our camper and installed it. It fit perfect and I had the vent back in working condition in less than 30 minutes. This was a well built, quality unit that I am very pleased with. If I ever have any more lift arms break I plan on replacing them with these fine units. Shipping was fast and ordering the unit was fast and simple.

After a year it still works like new! This was one of the best fix it purchases that I have ever made!

Ordered 2 each replacement Fantastic Fan vent lids, lift crank assemblies and switches. etrailer had best pricing based on my internet search. Items arrived quickly and were well packaged. I was pleased to discover that the replacement lids included the hinges. Changing out the lids was as simple as removing 4 screws from each old vent lid, fitting replacement lids, and reinstalling the old screws. Lift cranks and switches were exact replacements and also very easily installed. I highly recommend etrailer for providing the exact replacement parts at best prices, and with speedy delivery!



- FVK8011-05
by:

The replacement lift arm bolted right in place without issue. These are an upgrade of my original lift arm as the input shaft extends out slightly more than the original making a better/deeper fit into the drive coupling on the motor. The shipping time was acceptable. Customer service was excellent.



- FVK8011-05
by:

The item and the price were both right! Doesn't always happen that you get both together these days. I order online a great deal and have received the wrong item too often. It's especially rewarding to find a source for specialty items that are reasonably priced and reliable. Definitely will be doing future business with etrailer as a first choice.


Comments
A year later and the parts that I ordered are performing very well as is the fan itself. Would it be too cliche to say that it’s ‘fantastic’?

  • Fan-Tastic Vent Won't Close with Honeywell Thermostat T812D1025
    The issue you are having could indeed be a problem with the thermostat but it could also be a problem with the lift arm. When you apply the switch on the thermostat does the arm bind at all?

We currently do not offer the replacement arm for the flat lid models so you would need to contact the manufacturer if this is the problem and model you have. If...

  • Troubleshooting Fantastic Vent Lift Arm Motor That Spins Without Lifting
    It sounds like the the issue stems from the lift arm roller. If the teeth on either the lift arm or on the inside of the piece on which it attaches on the motor are damaged or stripped, it would explain why the motor simply spins without actually lifting or lowering the vent lid. To remedy this, I recommend replacing both the lift motor and the lift arm mechanism. To replace a 7-rpm speed lift motor, use # FVK6050-80. Otherwise, the 17-rpm lift motor can be replaced with either # FVK6010-80...

    Thanks for the photo and based on that it looks to me like you may have had a continuous hinge and would need the Vent Cover for Ventline Old Style Rounded Dome Trailer Roof Vents - White # BV0554-01, though you are going to want to confirm this is the hinge style you have. If not you can also go with the MaxxAir UniMaxx Universal Replacement Lid # MA00-335001. As for the lift arm, for that you would need to know the manufacturer to get the correct one.
