    :helpsos: We are to be travelling in Europe for next couple of years with our wee buddy Albie, we really wanted to get an ac unit installed but didn't want to get rid of our Heki due to the immense light it lets in so were going to go for a Dometic Freshlight. Unfortunately our satellite dish was fitted first and we have now had two independents tell us that we cant have the ac unit due to position of dish and we really shouldn't move that as could result in damage to roof :cry:, so next best thing we think is the Turbo Fan. Who's got one that can give me best opinion of it???

    Thank you,

    We were in this afternoon getting all our last minute bits, wish i'd posted last night now.
    We are an hour away from you but if we get any free time I will tell the old man to do that.

    Thanks Peter

    I have had turbo fans previously but rarely used them. when we did they were very effective.

    i am thinking of manufacturing my own clip in version to fit the full size heki rooflight. what im thinking of is a 14" or 16" 12v accessory fan as fitted to car radiators mounted on 2 aluminium rails. the rails would be slotted to fit over the lips at the sides of the opening. i could store it out of the way and just clip it in an plug into a 12v socket when needed. just an idea for now though:thumb:

    Brilliant devices, wouldn't be without one.

    Our old MB608 had one - kept things cool on India/Maroc/Derbyshire/Wales trips :Wink:...

    Sucks and blows - and variable speed... :thumb:

    and extracts cooking smells etc. brilliantly.

    We have one fitted above our bed and the 2 cats love it. Can be run whilst driving and "sucks" all the hot air out. When we go out for the day leave it running the MH is cool by the time we get back and the pets are happy. Worth the money.
