    I'm going to take off the AC unit on a Jayco 10Z I bought. Any advice on what to use on that size hole in the roof.

    What about replacing with a regular vent? The holes are sized the same

    Add a 14" roof vent and fan.

    I spent a little more than necessary on a Fantastic vent and added a 200 mm 166 cfm computer fan. http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=73324

    Alternatively, you can get a vent with fan or just install a plain vent and add a Heng's Vortex II multi speed fan. Plenty of YouTube vids that show how to install a roof vent.

    I was hoping that was the answer. I haven't done it yet but we mainly camp off the grid and have almost no use for the AC unit. Probably get rid of the Onan generator and 6 gallon gas can (150 lbs combined) also.

    If you want to reduce power consumption and conserve battery power, swap out the incandescent light bulbs for LED's. [;)]

    We can tough out the two trips a year where A/C would be nice but the vent fan is pretty much a necessity for us.

    Note that the vents with little fans usually make a lot of noise but don't move more than 33 cfm. Fantastic fan vents are pricey but have all the bells and whistles and move about 300 cfm. That's like a 10mph breeze.
