    I guess you mean something like this.,
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Selections-Solar-Powered-Greenhouse-Ventilator-by/19015706349?iid=282865362181&_trkparms=aid=555018&algo=PL.SIM&ao=1&asc=20170810093926&meid=cb7c512c91a14e43afc40b396796a34c&pid=100854&rk=1&rkt=1&&itm=282865362181&_trksid=p2349526.c100854.m4779

    and the big question that I know they all want to ask.. What happens when you do a real "stinker" after the sun has gone down ?? No solar, no extraction... :D

    It is real to help reduce the heat in a greenhouse, could assist in Motorhome / boats etc i guess.. Think I would rather open the door and windows if it was that hot..

    I think some of these have a rechargeable battery to keep them going at night.

    Won't be very powerful. I would sooner fit a window that can be opened to get some through draft.

    What is it your trying to achieve? Is it to cool the van down and keep fresh air circulation or to remove nasty odders from the toilet. If its the second of the above have you looked at fitting a SOG system. A bit more expensive but one of the best things I have installed in my van.
