So am I having the "normal" working out the kinks out of my 2 year old coach (other than the new engine part 😂)?

My fan on dash for oasis stopped working last year, so when I went to Newmar for service work I had them fix it. As it turned out the bearings went bad (Stuart...you suspected that was going to be the case last year. 😊). They replaced the motor assembly. The unfortunate part is that on the 2018's you have to take apart the whole dash to get to it. I really need to hang out with some of you guys so I can learn how to do some stuff. I was lucky that the 5 hours of labor turned out to be 2.5 hours. Glad they changed that setup in the new coaches. Anyway, I left Newmar this past Saturday. I had my Oasis running and at some point during the night the fan stopped working. Yup, not even gone one day and it was DEAD. Yes, zone 1 was on. All Is well with my Oasis. When I press the rocker switch, nothing happens (Sorta like my wet bay door when I tried to open it and the cable had slipped the allen screw.). I feel like a wire might be disconnected, but I was at a stop when the fan stopped. I'm trying to set up an appointment at NIRVC in Atlanta to have it looked at. My question to you all is as follows - is that fan meant to be used sparingly or should I be able to use it throughout the night when it's freezing outside?

Thanks!

It.is meant for full time use. The reason it is on a rocket is that while driving it may be too hot up front, especially if using the dash heater.
