    Terry I believe you , I connected the electric wire put that end into the hole and over half of the unit went in but would not rotate so the rest would go up so flange would rest on the ceiling.but I am trying to put the vent in as it came from the factor I assume it dosent come apart to install . Thanks George

    The 10.5x10.5 is the finished hole size, which would not allow you to get the flange up flush with the joists.

    If you put the flange on the outside (below) the drywall, the thickness of the ceiling may prevent you from getting the vent back on in the attic. The hole only needs to be over-sized a bit to get the flange up there.

    Cacher that was the trick I needed. I cut the hole a bit bigger and the vent slip right in. Went up in attic hook up the duct and was done. Thanks to everone George

    Since the last post the drake II was put in the bath and I put the Archer toilet in the master bath both of them are very well made . The Archer perform great better then I expected. Is there such a thing as a vent fan for a bath that don't have vent pipes running to it? Thanks George

    Hi ,MY master bathroom room has a water closet with a power vent /light in it.The rest of the master bath has a shower ,big tub and 2 sinks so it about 20x18 area ,this area has no vent at all .I was going put one in it because my reason is the moisture from the shower and tub has no where to go .My wife says that this area does not need a power vent .So I am coming to the experts to ask .I feel that the power vent over the toliet does no good since it is in a seperate room and the switch for it is also in the water closet..
    What do you guys suggested?
    Thank you George

    This Archer tub fit in perfectly without shims or mortar. It's not often I get a perfect fit between tub and floor.
