I needed a cooling fan for my Garmin 796 thats installed in my panel on my RV8. The Garmin mount already had a 5/8 cooling port connection in the rear of it. The mounting face plate on the fan has 2 possible positions to install it to make any angle direction possible. I soldered a longer red wire to reach my 12v bus and soldered a connection to the black (ground) wire. Works perfect.

It is light and quiet but the solder joints are very delicate. Both the solder joints for the ground and power wires failed with very little handling.

The one I received did not have the two screws to fasten the tube to the blower housing. When I test fitted a piece of scat duct the tube came right off when I removed the scat tube with little force. The tube was only glued in with silicone and not fastened with two screws as shown in the picture. In general I think this should sell for $10 bucks to reflect its quality.

Per the manual this has a draw of .320mA. A 1 amp should be sufficient.
