    Default Slide in box question...

    Does anyone have any experience adding a exhaust fan to all aluminum box? I was thinking about either building a push fan out of a electric radiator cooling fan and mounting on the doors or adding a rv exhaust fan to the rear and covering it with a shroud? Any thoughts or experiences doing this would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Darin,
    We've used both boat exhaust blowers and computer fans with great success. We install them to where they are pulling the hot air out of the dog box. It's a very inexpensive way to keep air moving through the box, keeping the dogs cool. ALWAYS dry the dogs before putting them back in a crate!!!

    David,

    Thanks for the answer, what has worked out best for you, using a fan to push air onto your dogs or to exhaust/pull air into the box?

    I liked the marine exhaust blowers best. They are heavy duty and seem to pull the air with more power. My brother is the one who has done my work. He will install the blower inside the box with a heavy duty mesh protecting the fan. Works great!!!
