    I would like suggestions related to 4 canopy fans I have for my 180. The fans are located (2) at each end, of an enclosed (all sides and top) canopy, roughly 6' long. It has 2 top lids, and 3 front facia access doors.
    My question is whether I should have all 4 fans blowing in, out, or 2 each in/out. I've never seen much information regarding this subject, I was wondering if there was any advantage obtained by directing the airflow in a particular manor.
    Thx in advance.

    Hi Walter,

    I would have some fans blow fresh air INTO the canopy and some fans to blow hot air OUT from the canopy.

    I think that would work best.....2 in and 2 out seems reasonable to me.
