Rear Vent Wired ?

Just ordered a Maxx Air Fan for the front vent. Planning on replacing the rear vent only later this year with another Maxx Air. Rig is a 2012 Lexi 283ts.
Just wondering if any Lexi owners have replaced the rear vent with a powered fan, if the opening is pre-wired. If not I know I can tap into the ceiling light, but pre-wired would be nice.
Thanks, Grumpy

For bclemens----
Have my Maxxfan comming in tomorrow. Pulled the vent trim from inside, rear bedroom and did find it was wired. Wire dosen't have an "end", but seems to be a loop, possibly part of a completed circuit. I take it that it's ok to cut the wire and splice my fan wires into the loop. Just wondering what is on the wired circuit, if you know?
Thenks, Grumpy

it is looped. All the roof fans are wired on that circuit along with the 12V portion of the A/C (brain).

Typically that wires comes up the fridge area, hits the rear vent, moves forward from there finishing up at the bunk light (but in your case, no bunk light)

Installed the Maxxfan Maxxair Delux yesterday in the rear bedroom area of our Lexi. As Mr clemens noted, it was pre-wired, and install was as easy as just cutting and splicing the fan wires into the rig's wire. Works perfectly.
Now have two really decent fans, one can pull air in while the other pulls air out creating a nice air flow. Really does work.
Took the original 3 speed fan that was mounted in the front living area and installed it in place of the little single speed fan in the bathroom.
