My wife is getting prepared for many road trips in the 110 and is looking at trucker fans to mount in the dash. At speed there is plenty of airflow, but at low or no speed no airflow. So.....has anyone installed a dash fan for cooling occupants or at least providing additional air flow?

I wired up one of those fans for my son in the red seat. Works fine. Makes a big difference when the going is slow. Probably the easiest way is to get a clip on one and install a blue sea (or vendor of choice) 12V socket through an aux fuse block. You will still be warm tho.

You could try the poor mans AC by keeping a frozen gallon milk jug in a cooler with air blowing in and out.
You could also keep the engle on freeze to have a reserve frozen to swap out as needed.
We used one for camping and it worked great for sleeping in the summer.

Yeah the fan works ok. I got one that claps and clamped it onto the dash.

X1 on the swamp cooler mentioned above. That'll be the best solution. Also cheaper and easier, simply throw a bag of ice in the floorboard. It'll last only a few hours but its worth the few bucks.
