I buy my repair kits at Walmart or NAPA. There's a bit of an art to using them. I find that gently heating the inside of the windshield behind the bullseye really helps to draw the resin into the cracks. I've done enough  now that I can usually count on making them completely disappear.

I haven't ordered the controller yet.  Yes, my fans are 12v DC

I intend to use a controller like this so I can monitor the temperature as well as control the fans.  I plan to have two controllers.  One for low temperature, and one for high temperature.  Each controller should be two stage; to turn on/off as the temperature increases or decreases.  
What I see for a problem is when one fan is on it could back-feed power to the second relay.  


Are you sure these controllers will work? For some reason it is looking for 12 VAC input and the internal relay is to control 220V AC at a max of 10A
Looks like what you want is something to control a 12VDC fan..

dave this is what I did
my extra fan is a inline 10 " 120 volt that turns on when the a/c turns on the cooling fan and I control the speed with a fan dimmer switch . the intake comes in through the old bus a/c compartment through a filter ,then through the a/c unit , then out through the 2nd fan and under the coach . It works really well on the road using my inverter or hooked up to the pole

   The fans mounted to the floor should have an air deflector lip sticking down a couple of inches on the front edge of holes  to avoid air movement turbulence going down the road.

Yup, probably do that at some future date.  Right now I can't run it on the road because I have a Modified Wave Inverter.  Someday when I'm all grown up I'll get a Pure Sine Inverter and I'll put some kind of flap in front of the holes.

Thanks

I have a mini-split and the condenser sits in the bay.  I've put louvers in my bay door for air and some holes with automotive cooling fans in the floor.  I plan to put a box over the unit to force its own fan to blow through the floor.  However, I want to use the cooling fans to kick in when the temperature gets too extreme.  Running both fans is overkill usually.  No fan is needed in moderate weather, and one fan when the temperature is hot.  So two fans might never be used.  But, I have them and want to wire them anyway.

Am I going about this right?  Is there something simple I can do to prevent the back-feed?

Call Safe-lite... they do repairs, well.  https://www.safelite.com/store-locator/

The kits are not always effective, nor easy peasy.
