Barry,
       I didn't have it in the bathroom, I was just saying that in the right conduction the fan could pull in the fumes from the roof vent to the black water tank.

I would love to add a rheostat to our fan.  Even on low, in a coach the size of a 2350, it is pretty loud.  It would be nice to be able to slow it down to just pull a small draft from an open window at night.  Anyone done that?

Jim,

    I would never put the reverse in the bathroom, don't think you'd want that air coming in the coach, but is it nice to have cool air coming in at night instead of leaving the air conditioner on.

Bruce,

     When we are watching TV we would like to get cool air blowing on us.  Now we can set the galley fan to blow air in and the bedroom fan to blow air out and it gives us a nice cross ventilation.  Then when we are sleeping we have it set the opposite way so that the bedroom area gets a nice draft running through.  The air conditioner is so loud that we do not like to use it at night when sleeping or watching TV so this gives us great air flow in both areas.

     The reverse air flow has always been an option on the fans but the basic units do not include them.

Berry,
       We had the same problem with out fan on our 5 wheel, I had order the reversing fan but got the single direction fan, when I asked about it, they told me that the RVIA took the option off of RV's in 2003. The reason was that the pull in could pull in fumes from the toilet and from the Generator if you run it. Now with that said, I reverced mine also.

Very interesting post--thanks!
Please help me understand the advantage of reversing the airflow.

Bob, on our 2552 that side of the pump is the inlet, not the outlet. The outlet is under the black drain pipe. We have flexible hose, but it is attached to the fresh water tank and connects to Pex tubing that goes to the 4-way switch on the driver's side exterior wall. Not exactly what SHURflo specifies. The pump outlet connects directly to a T which connects to Pex going forward to the kitchen and rearward to the bathroom. There is no room to add flexible hose to the outlet.

We have a max air fan in our bedroom area and a fantastic fan in the galley area of our 2551.  What we really like about the max air is that you can reverse the direction of airflow.  We considered changing the fantastic fan to a max air ($300+) but did not like the idea of having to break the seal on the roof.  We also considered upgrading the fantastic fan ($160+) to one with a reverse switch.  After alot of research we found the part number for the reverse switch and a wiring diagram so we decided to make the modification ourselves.

We bought the reverse switch from amazon for $15.49 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LNH0BZI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1.  We wired it in, added the switch and it works fantastically.

After we ordered the switch we found we could have bought this for ($50) and just do a plug and play.

We could have bought a DPDT switch at the local hardware store for a couple of dollars but wanted the switch to look like it was part of the unit and not just an add on.  So all is well that ends well.  For less than $20 we have reverse air flow on our fantastic fan.  We are now looking at changing the speed of the motor with more options but that is for another day.

It really shows what Phoenix can do for its customers request. You captured how beautiful it is on the outside while her pictures show the inside.

Beautiful isn't it? She had it custom designed with a longer wheelbase 450 chassis than normal for her model if I remember correctly
