Good Day All... I thought I would pass on a bit of information on Marincos 4" Day/Night Solar
Vent (Part # N20804S).
I had installed mine on Haven in August of this year. I had wanted to see if I could increase the ventilation in her as she sits closed up for a few days on end and did not want the return of the awful mold
that we experienced after a 2 week absence. The past few trips to her, I noticed the fan was off. I turned the switch off then on and she cranked right back up.
I called technical support today and they were aware of this problem in that it was in the motor
assembly itself. Once the battery
had run down, the fan would stay off even after the battery
had recharged. The technician led me to the resources tab on the site, Marine & Boat Supplies | Marinco
, had me click on warranty request form and had me fill out the form, attach an electronic copy of the receipt. They will be shipping
out a new unit that has been upgraded to alleviate this concern.
Do Not go through the vendor if you are experiencing a similar concern, go directly through the manufacturer.
His hope was that they would have more in stock in the next couple of weeks. He did say in the meantime, to try to unhook the battery to run on solar
only in the daytime (a fix someone had iterated to him in a previous conversation) but that it was not known if that would actually work
. Couldn't hurt....
