10-Minute Tech: Get a Handle on the Fan Crank

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine


My wife and I are too short to reach the fan crank handle on the overhead vents in our Jayco trailer without standing on a step stool. Our neighbor solved the dilemma with a simple tool he fashioned from a tree branch about 5/8 inches in diameter. The legs of the “Y” are cut about 2 to 3 inches to fit the diameter of the handle/knob. The length of the “tool” can be made to whatever suits the user. The handle end is also squared off to operate the switch.
