The Dometic Group announced that it will show its new 1400 model 12-volt fan powered vent at the 2016 Elkhart Open House Sept. 19 in Elkhart, Indiana.
Using 3 amps or less of energy, its ceiling fan operation, lightweight design, and increased structural support make it not only durable, but also easy to service.
The Pop N’ Lock internal screen is designed for easy removal to clean, and a top mounting Pop N’ Lock screen can be purchased for additional bug protection. The 1450 model fan comes with all of the same features, with the additional reversible fan blade for air intake or exhaust.
The open house is at Dometic’s facility at 2320 Industrial Parkway in Elkhart, if you just happen to be in the area, from 4 to 7 p.m. Sept. 19, followed by factory tours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 20.
Individuals who RSVP by visiting www.dometic.com/openhouse16 will be eligible for a chance to win a prize. During the cocktail reception, Dometic will be offering prize giveaways, and giving tours through its refrigerator factory.
Dometic will also be providing a sneak peek of its PowerChannel hardware and the Atwood Glass bi-fold cover. The 12-volt PowerChannel hardware mounts seamlessly to an existing Dometic awning hardware to run Dometic’s oscillating fan, Bluetooth speaker and LED spotlight accessories.
The Atwood Bi-Fold cover was newly redesigned with tinted glass and mounts flush on a range to expand RV counter space. Durable, tempered glass provides an easy-to-clean surface. It is available in a see-through smoke grey tint or full blackout glass for a luxurious, high-end appearance. When folded back, the cover stays in the upright position so it won’t fall down. It is designed for easy installation and includes fasteners.
“The Powered Vent is the best in the industry, providing RVs with energy-efficient, powerful ventilation for year-round comfort,” said Dave Schutz, vice president of OEM sales and marketing. “The vent is designed with a 7/8-inch lower profile lid to increase aerodynamics. RVers will be delighted with the powerful air flow and head-turning design.”
