This is the second solar powered vent I have installed in my trailer in one years time. The first one leaked water into the motor located below and adjacent to the circular plastic piece containing the solar panels. I applied additional silicon to the top of the new I just purchased vent where a connection is made between the circular panel and it outer mounting piece. Hopefully this might work. 492580

seems to work as described. Does take a fairly bright sky to work...but not necessarily direct sun. As an FYI, fan was not on shaft when arrived. After I figured it went on with the embossed arrow showing rotation so that it could be seen, I firmly pushed it on the shaft but it was noisy when spinning. I pulled it back just a tiny bit and it ran noiselessly. Installation went smoothly. I did have to cut about 2 inched off vent pipe so the the fan did not hit the pipe. I also removed the 3 screws to separate the base from top (fan and solar panel) to make the base easier to install then reattached after base was fully installed. 314051

We are not using this as it is typically but it does a pretty good job of taking some of the heat buildup and much the fumes from fuel in lawn mowers etc out of our yard storage building. 287565

I installed the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered plumbing vent sold by E-Trailer on my 13 ft. Scamp trailer to circulate and vent air in the trailer while it is being stored. There is indirect sunlight incident to the solar-powered vent that shines through some pine trees. The vent works perfectly. I installed a 4-in. air conditioner duct (sold by etrailer,Valterra Heating And A/C Vent Register) with built in flappers to regulate the air flow thru the solar-powered vent and to make the appearance of the vent look better from the inside of the trailer. Also made a trim ring out of a plastic cutting board to garnish the solar-powered vent inside opening. Look great and works like gang busters. 367956


Comments
I had to replace the solar powered vent after one year of service. It was no longer operable. I took the malfunctioning vent apart and found that the seal at the solar panel directly above the motor had failed and permitted water to damage the motor. I installed a second new solar powered vent and took the time to place additional sealant between the solar panel ant its mounting plate.

Product took longer than expected to arrive. Package was well packed and protected. Have not had a chance to try unit or install yet so cannot review or rate performance. Service and ease of web site was very user friendly, I would recommend for purchases. Overall, great job... 143680


Comments
Installed unit after my 7/30/14 post and it has been working great ever since. Does not push a lot of air mass but I am sure it pushes more than no fan or at least as good as any similar product. The positive here is the solar. It does not have to be in direct sunlight by any means to operate.Great product IMHO!I dont use it on a trailer but on a small LifeTime plastic shed as it get very warm in there sometimes. So this product has other applications...

Runs so quietly that it's hard to tell it's working. But I installed it on the top of my small trailer, where temps had soared to 119 Fahrenheit, and now the temps are much closer to ambient. 548887

no good there is no switch to on or off.cheap design. 541619


Comments
You are correct the solar powered vent does not have an onoff switch. It is not meant for standard or bathroom use. It is meant to be used as a holding tank or plumbing vent, where a on/off switch would not be necessary.

I didn't use my solar vent quite as intended. I mounted it into the top of a modified Rv roof vent (which I keep closed typically). This is a replacement. The first lasted about 5 years but ultimately the plastic degraded in the sun and became brittle. I assume this will do the same over time. We shall see. Works as intended. Keeps a little air flowing through the rv. Wish there were bigger solar fans for this job. 558361

I installed this vent on the roof of a 6x12 cargo trailer. It worked well right out of the box, even during a cloudy day. Other reviews suggested adding a screen to keep insects out and so I did. The trailer will sit out in the hot Florida summer sun, and when I return later this year, I'll post an update on how well it performed. So far, so good. 494979

I a sorry I have not been able to install them yet as it has been a very busy year. I will install them in my generator building to keep out moisture. I believe these will work great. Was impressed with your prompt delivery. 452660



- UF53-945001
by:

The low profile of the vent met my immediate needs. You cannot hear the fan running so unless I climb up on top it's a matter of faith. You cannot turn it off either. While it may be ideal for a backyard shed it's not a real improvement over a standard rv vent. No regrets on buying it but probably wouldn't buy another. 451879

Good product, well made. Fired right up when I took it into the sun. I am using mine to keep a outdoor garden railroad engine shed a little cooler. It gets brutally hot in Las Vegas so I am going to paint my unit to UV protect the plastic on the fan housing. 404961



- UF53-945001
by:

Installation was ok. Had to lower the existing pipe (hit the fan) and had another vent pipe close so had to trim the new one around the outer edge. As soon as it hits the sun it turns on. Would recommend it to anyone trying to remove more of the black tank smell. 404852

best part, it turned on the moment it was out of the box! replacing old warn out solar vents on my custom teardrop with these was easy and quick. having easy to replace parts is clutch when road repairs happen but these will last its the trailer life plus a nice breeze pulling in my windows at night with the air volume these deliver makes a trip even better. Great product! 376032

  • Recommended Solar Fans for Built Up Heat in a Cargo Trailer
    We have the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent for Motor Homes - 7" Diameter x 3-3/4" Tall # UF53-945001 which is designed to be mounted on the roof. My recommendation is to use this roof vent and allow your side vents to stay as they are. This fan will allow the hot air that rises to be forced out to cool down your trailer and allow you to draw air through the side vent locations.

  • Solar Powered Roof Vent Recommendation for Cargo Van to Exhaust Hot Air
    Based on what you described your best option will be the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001. This solar powered vent will install on the roof of your cargo van and will work to remove the hot air at the top of your van's interior as long as it has access to sunlight. I attached a review video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Can Rain Get Into the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent
    The opening on the solar-powered vent # UF53-945001 is up underneath the top portion so it is very unlikely that rain could get in. But it is not outside the realm of possibility if the rain was hard enough (sideways rain in high winds). I have included a link to a video review of this vent for you. As far as keeping rain out, the Ultra-Fab solar-powered vent would be my top choice over Ventline vent # VP-543SP. The Ventline vent is also hardwire only so it will need to connect to 12...

  • Can a Solar Powered Plumbing Vent be Used on an Enclosed Car Hauler Trailer
    You could use plumbing vent # UF53-945001 for your enclosed car hauler trailer. On the inside what I would do is get some screen (like for windows) that does not restrict air flow (as good for air flow as you can find) and cover the opening on the inside of the trailer. But this fan has a very low cubic feet per minute air movement rating and might not be the best option. Another option is to use vent # HMAV2-AVT2 or # WHMAV2-WAVT2. The openings point down so installed on the side or...

  • Can Wasps Get Into Trailer/RV Through Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent

    I am great thanks for asking! We have one powered plumbing vent that you could use, # UF53-945001. It is solar powered so does not actually wire into the electrical system of the trailer. It is only 7 inches in diameter and 3-3/4 inches tall. This is currently the only option we carry that can be used in a bathroom. I have linked a video review for you.

This vent does not store power to operated at night, so it will only work during daylight but will work on overcast days at there is still enough daylight for function.

  • CFM of Ultra-Fab Solar Powered Plumbing Vent UF53-945001
    The Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001 is designed to provide a continuous (as long as the sun is out) low-level draw on an RV plumbing vent over the waste water tank. It does not carry a specific CFM rating as the motor unit is very small. The fan generates a slight amount of air pressure, hardly enough to feel, but for the purpose it's designed for it would work just fine. The fan includes installation hardware, but I'd recommend using # 0160297 silicone sealant between...

It does not carry a specific cubic-feet-per-minute (CFM) rating as the motor unit employed is fairly modest in size. The fan generates a moderate air pressure only; you will not feel the air flow with your hand, for example, even when the fan is operating. This unit installs by securing its mounting flange with...

  • Vent Recommendation for the Sleeper of a Semi Truck
    For a solar vent the part # UF53-945001 could work well for you, but it sounded like you didn't plan to have the vent mounted to the top of the roof so direct sunlight may be hard to get. For a vent that runs off of 12 volt power the part # VP-543SP might be a better option. Above the roof line this vent will extend 2-3/8 inches when closed and 3-1/4 inches when open. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Will the Ultra Fab Solar Panel Fan Still Vent at Night
    The fan of the # UF53-945001 will only be turning during the day when there is sunlight. But air can still travel in and out of the vent when the fan isn't turning. The solar panel of the vent will not store power. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • What is the CFM of Ultra-Fab Mini Solar Plumbing Vent
    I contacted Ultra-Fab about the Solar Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001 and they couldn't provide an exact CFM. They were able to tell me that it is very low. The blades move quite slow to the point where it doesn't even feel air moving. It isn't designed to be move air with any force.

  • Recommended Fans for Use In Horse Trailer
    I do have an option for you but the only solar powered fan we offer is the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent part # UF53-945001 and this would not move much air in your horse trailer. The same can be said for most solar powered fans of its kind as they are really not designed to move large quantities of air. Therefore, a much better option for you would be to install a few 12 volt powered vent fans. I recommend the MaxxAir Mini Deluxe Trailer Roof Vent part # MA00-03851 or part # MA00-03801...

  • Does Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent for Motor Homes have an On/Off Switch

  • Where Does Air Come Out of the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001
    The air that vents out of the Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001 actually comes out of the sides of the vent and not the top. Basically it comes up the center tube of the vent and the around the edge of the tube and then under the main lid that has the solar panel on it. It's designed like this so that rain won't allow water into the trailer through the vent. I attached a picture that shows where the air comes out. When there isn't sunlight air can still vent out...

  • Vent Recommendation for Trailer with Fan
    If you have a 14 inch by 14 inch Ventline roof vent on your trailer already a better solution would be to go with a powered unit with a fan like the part # V2094SP-28 to replace what you currently have as the part # UF53-945001 can not be installed in place of it. If you happened to have a # VP-543SP instead the # UF53-945001 would work as a replacement.

  • Can Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent Be Hooked Up to 12V Battery
    The Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent # UF53-945001 is operated solely from solar power and there isn't a good way to wire it to a 12V battery for assistance. This is a completely self-contained unit that will work really well during daylight hours but isn't able to operate overnight. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Mounting Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent on Exterior Wall
    The Ultra-Fab Solar-Powered Plumbing Vent for Motor Homes - 7" Diameter x 3-3/4" Tall # UF53-945001 although designed for roof use can be used on the side wall. With proper caulking, you shouldn't have any leaking issues. The overlapping design will keep water from entering the system under normal weather conditions.

    The Multi-Purpose Ventilator - Aluminum # PLR20 will work to help you move air through your trailer. You may also be interested in the Side Cowl Ventilator with Screen # PLR1715. For the best air movement and still the weather protection, I recommend these side vents for the lower vents and then using a roof vent like # MA00-06401K if you have a trailer battery.
