I just got the DSI fan (which is advertised as fitting all DSI models), but the
rubber mounting clamps seem to be too small to fit my DSI III. Am I doing
something wrong? Does Meade carry larger mounting clamps to fit the fan on the
DSI III? How do you all mount your fan on the DSI III?

Hi,

A fan on the DSI III would be nice, but I believe as you found out, the one Meade sells only fits the original and II series.

I made an adapter plate for both my DSI III and Pro III that moves the rubber feet out just a tad so the fan fits. I believe the case on the III may also be a tad thicker than the I or II. I wrapped a couple of loops of yard around the legs to keep them from slipping off. I just leave the fans on during the summer and take them off in the fall. If you look closely at the picture I posted of my two LXD75 SN6s you can see the fans attached.
