Hi Group

Looking for recommends on two different types of fans.

First off, clip-on fans, 120v or rechargeable. Looking to add some air movement under my awning, so I want to be able to clip-on fans to the support brackets. I guess it's a safety issue, the ones I've looked at from Walmart all have such excessive grills covering the blades, barely any air makes it out. The ones that are more open are so under powered with soft plastic blades, they don't move any air.

Second off, Looking to mount some 12v fans to the OH cabinet above the dinette. Bought a RoadPro Trucker fan and it looks nice, heavy weight, but makes more noise than air.

Suggestions?

Small clip on fans outside will be next to worthless as far as moving air, especially enough air to keep you cool(er). Fans are good for keeping flying/biting critters at bay as well, but again you need a lot of air, moving at a nice clip. We use a big 3 speed round stationary fan that sits on the floor, some use an oscillating fan on a stand/pole.

Can’t help on the inside fan issue. Every MH I had until this one had fans in the front. Not much air, a bit noisy.

We have a large floor fan we use outside ( if we take it along) we have 2 small 9 inch fans that set on the floor, or table, or kitchen counter, or wherever for the inside. Works well for us

These fans move an incredible amount of air and don't seem to break at all. Last forever.

Absolutely the best 12v fan
