Wiring for power vent

Does anyone know where the prewired connections go for power? We are installing a Fantastic Fan above the galley on our 2010 Sunseeker 300SS.
Thanks in advance
Gil

The dealer was installing a power fan in our middle vent. Prewire is there but he could not trace it to a connection. He tracked it with a device but lost the signal behind the refrigerator. Anyone have suggestions? I had him leave the power connection to me.

Is the prewire hot? Does it have 12 volts present? If it does, then wire up the fan and use it. You may never be able to find where it goes.

In most cases the prewire is hooked to the light switch for room.

The problem is the Prewire is not hot. Guess I'll just tap into a light wire close by. Thanks for replies.

Check to see if it is already grounded. Also check for empty fuses in the WFCO with wires connected. Last resort, check for dead end wires behind the WFCO.

Just today, I took off my trim ring on my kitchen vent today on my Roo. There was a wire there that ran from one ceiling light to the next, and they looped it around the vent with lots extra wire.

X2. It has to end up in a panel fuse. You can find out by pulling each fuse and checking the voltage on the wire. But if it's hot, no worries.
