My bushings were dry from lack of use the rear one is easy, the one behind the fan I drilled a hole in the case to allow a straw from a spray can to reach in. during testing after I noticed there is a substantial increase in noise from the hole I drilled so I taped it over with tin tape as I was reinstalling.
I think a better way to get heat to the washroom would have been a zone damper fired from the bathroom thermostat that closed to block 75% of the living room outlet there is at least in mine a 3 or so inch joiner duct that would do nicely to house the damper. it would be much easier to service. but then I wouldn't have found the Pristine SP brochure that was in with the junk that had fallen between the cabinet and wall!
Hope this helps someone in the future.
A hinge at the base in the front of that cabinet will enable you to just "swing" it out of position when you need to lube that squeally fan again.

A good electric heater in the bath does the job also without making the salon unbearably hot. The original one in my bath was a scary glowing thing. It was replaced with something like these in the 1000 watt version, and was a direct replacement.

Turned up on high this heater will keep most of the coach warm, but it requires 120Volts which isn't always available, but usually is.
