A couple of years ago mine quit and I went to my local RV parts place and he told me he would get a replacement. I was surprised when I picked up the new one and there was no charge as it was guaranteed for life

Thanks ferndaleflyer, I have all of the original papers when the original owner first registered all of the products back in '96, including this fantastic fan. I'm going to reach out to Dometic (looks like they bought them out?) and see if they wanna replace it!

IN MY OPINION, Dometic customer service is fantastic. They're products on the other hand are not what they used to be. But if you can get a free one......

I seem to recall there is a life time warranty on the lid for the original fans. One blew off my dads motorhome, current Fantastic fan owners sent free cover.

I had modern ones installed in last 2 truck campers. I ended up replacing motors on both as they started to sound like crickets were in the motor. I still have some laying around and was going to experiment with drilling a hole to oil the motor bearings. But its the plastic that goes bad over the long haul that you might not be able to get.
