    about a year or so back, someone posted a thread about cooling fans and someone posted a link to a company that sold fans used to cool inboard motors on boats (waterproof, in a tube, really moved the CFM) does anyone have that link?

    I have Endless Breeze Fans attached to the front door of both of my Ainley crates in my truck http://www.fantasticvent.com/product...ss_breeze.html
    These fans put out a lot of air and have very little Amp draw, infact I have ran them for 6+ hours with out starting my truck and it had no effect on my truck battery. I just wired in two 12 volt plug adapters in the back of my truck. The fans are also very quite so its easy on the dogs ears. I just used bunjee cord to attach them to the crate doors.

    I hope this helps

    Greg

    I have been using the Walmart clip-on fans that operate off the cigarette lighter, but became very interested in the Endless Breeze fans. I found their website (listed the fan for $69 & $7 s/h) and found a dealer near me. When I called to see if they had the fan in stock (I hate to wait for things), he was going to have to order one, but his price was $82.00. When I told him I could order it from the internet for $76.00, the dealer brought his price down to $72.00 (and no sales tax since he is located in Delaware!).

    Suppose to pick up the fan today
