Adding a Fan in front Bedroom

I own a 2015 Crossroads Sunset Trail ST26RB. The front bedroom only has a roof vent, so I am adding a Maxxair power vent.
Does anyone know if this RV is pre-wired for a fan, or do I have to wire it?
How do I obtain a wiring diagram?

I would think it should be pre wired. Take the square plastic piece down from the vent and look to see if you have the wires there. Note: when you take the plastic piece down you’ll have sawdust come down on the bed probably.

I replaced the cheap power fan in the bathroom with a Fan-Tastic fan.

When I want ventilation in the bedroom or any other location in the trailer I set the Fan-Tastic in exhaust mode and open a window or vent near where I want the ventilation.

Works very well for me.

I did the same thing in my 2012 Crossroads that I had before. I agree. It will really move the air like that.

I plan to eventually replace the bathroom fan with a nicer one, but right now, I bought a Maxxair fan for the front/bedroom area. This roof vent has no fan at all, which surprises me. I need to find power, 12v, for the fan I am installing.

Is there a light next to the bedroom vent? Mine is the same way and the service manager where I bought my RV says that I can tap into the power that feeds the light. Just make sure you get the one with the remote, makes it much easier to operate.

Did you take the plastic down and look?

i found power

I did find a pair of wires near the vent opening. They go through that area, and don't terminate at that point, but they have 12 volts, and are heavy enough, so I am tapping into them.
I am happy they are NOT the lights, because the bedroom lights are on a switch at the control center, so I obviously don't want that power.

Vent wires

Hi all, I too am looking for wires in vent area and there are none so I am attempting to drill out from the side of the vent area closest to light fixture wiring. There is some kind of metal enclosure surrounding the vent in the ceiling and I was able to drill through one side of it but so far not the other, anyone been down this road?
