60Mm computer fans come in 10 15 and 20Mm thicknesses

I cannot find the CFM rating of your Xinruilian RDH6020S

I once mounted a 60MM fan on the exterior of a schumacher that came with a very loud 40mm Fan. Still there, still works

Going back to your original question I just saw a nice 40 amp battery charger at West Marine for $130. If I did not already have the 40 amp B&D I would consider this one or the Stanley 40 amp charger.

For $130 an old fashioned wheel shop charger can be had. But 60% of the space inside is needless waste. Sitting on my bench is a rectified correctly Schmucker 10-amp charger. For today's project. The auto repair shop owner would like me to install a fan. I have the perfect choice already mounted. It's a 70mm fan with a .5 amp draw. It really pushes out the air. Going to also stick a tiny fan somewhere inside to stir things up. He has a stack of failed electronic chargers. Dack & Blecker, Sears, Schmucker. They all have bad irreplaceable mea ing not avaiable control boards. The Sears was eight months lut of warranty. I telephoned Sears USA repair parts. Eventually learned return warranty chargers are SCRAPPED HERE IN THE USA. And a replacement is sent out. It would be exactly the same thing for any other electronic charger. Eat vegan, recycle plastic bags and poison landfills with horridly poisonous electronics.

Mr Sanctamonious is now going to have breakfast then fix that REPAIRABLE battery charger. Pfffttt!

I found a fan with the same dimensions. Too cheap?

This one is only 10 mm thick but says "ball bearing". Have to pay shipping from Poland.

2004 Ford courtesy light in cab stays on all night, need a boost every morning.
It is supposed to go out if the light switch is turned to half way but this one never goes out unless I disconnect the battery.

Common problem, often caused by the door switch which is located inside the door latch that starts to stick on.

Sometimes freed by squirting some WD-40 into the latch on the door. Sometimes the entire latch must be replaced.

Ironically however the vehicles body control module should be timing out the light after 15 minutes.. May have issue with the body control module, on some Fords this module is integrated into the top of the fuse box located underside of the drivers side dash..

The problem of the Body control is often traced back to your windshield leaking on the driverside, the windshield just happens to be directly over top of the body control module!

If body control malfunctions, don't be surprised to have other things like radio, windshield wipers and fan motor to act up..
