The RV-500 can be affected by swirling or gusting winds. Gusting winds may affect the consistency of the water temperature. Slide-out compartments that are on the same side as the water heater will create turbulences. If you have a slide-out room on the same side as the water heater you need the Wind Protection Fan. In some circumstances, the internal wiring can become singed.
If you have a slide-out room or use your RV where wind gusts are common such as the desert or shore areas or use your RV at high altitudes, the Wind Protection Fan is strongly recommended. The Wind Protection Fan can be easily retrofitted.
