I was contemplating hanging a oscillating shop fan from the kitchen slide on my camper I was going to buy a wall mount fan and bolt it to a piece of angle bracket with a clamp screw that fit over the top of the slide.

I could also mount two smaller ones on either side of the kitchen slide with lamps.

I didn’t know if anyone had done this before and didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. I don’t want them on the ground because ground space is limited and kids knock them over.

i was looking into 12v wall mount fans. for like $50 to $75 dollars you can get something that looks decent and runs on the battery. alittle pricey for a fan but running on 12v is a plus. In case the camp ground loses power or you want to go boondocking you still have air flow.

Just keep in mind, anything you mount to the RV MUST be water proof or you can have a big problem with water intrusion into the wall of the RV.

Ok. Thank you. I wasn’t going to permanent mount to the rv. I was going to use screw clamps or spring clamps to hold it on

What size fan would I need to circulate air and keep gnats and flys away?
