Install electric fan in rear vent Sunseeker MBS 2400w 2016???

We would like to install electric fan in rear (bedroom) of our Sunseeker 2016 MBS. Does anyone know if there is electricity nearby? We have a vent. The fan installation looks straightforward. The wiring is what concerns us. Thanks.

May 2016 we bought our first RV.
Forest River Sunseeker 24ft MBS WS named "Where's Waldorf".
We will tow a Dodge Dakota as needed. It's name is DK.

Remove the interior trim ring from your ceiling vent. Now look around the edge of the vent for some 12v wires tucked into the ceiling. Most of the newer trailer models are pre-wired for a vent fan. Happy hunting.

Did that upgrade on my mbs Solera last weekend. Yes, pre wire is present for electric. You will see it when you take off the interior trim.

Same on my 2014 2860ds. Wire was already looped there just had to cut it in half and wire fan in with wire nuts.

I just replaced the vent lid on all 3 of my vents on my Sunseeker and the two that don't have fans both had wires behind the trim ring. So I could put a fan in if desired. Check yours and I bet you have wires available as well.
