    Screw it to the center of the lid blowing up. Use spacers so its not flat on the lid.

    Quote:Sorry but it really does matter which wire. The fan will be DC (direct current). It is not a major problem. once installed hook up the wires and if the fan is blowing the wrong way reverse the wires. Keep in mind when installing that the fan will probably be marked which way the air should pass through. Make sure it is pointing to the top of the bator.

    Quote:Good luck on yer first hatch. The wiring isn't rocket science. BUT if you have no electrical experience it can be scary. If you have any more questions feel free to contact me I will help where I can.
