Floor vent location?
I read about some of the clever locations for a floor fresh air vent. e.g. Medicineman and his vents on the floor near the cab.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried to use vents at the sides of the PM. Specifically, cut out a vent just aft of the slider where the triangular plastic covers are. Cut out another set on the other side.
Another idea I've been bandying about is to cut out a vent or 2 (or even 3) on the vertical part of the step up into the cab. For me, since I have the floor in already, this would be easiest as right now it's exposed and easy to cut into, whereas the floor is now completely covered in polyiso and plywood.
I've also bandied about the idea of vents in the rear doors. Maybe like what user Phranc did, or maybe a bit lower, near the bumper.
My normal forced air vent will be a MaxxAir fan in the middle right at the very back of the van. This is because I have a lot of solar panels to install and don't want any of them to be shaded; moving the fan as far back as possible.
What have you guys done? How have you like it?
What noise issues, if any, have you experienced when driving at freeway speeds?
PS: I had originally thought I'd just crack open the front windows but I've decided that for a variety of reasons, I want them buttoned up tight.
Ordered Feb 2018, arrived Sept 2018. 159-inch WB regular length, high top, 3.6L gas, both driver's and passenger-side sliding doors. Planning to lightly camper-ize it for spontaneous and free-spirited travel!
