Wire Routing from factory for ceiling lights

Does anyone know (generally speaking) how the factory wires their standard 12v ceiling lights? I don't care what trailer it is, (I have a Roo 21DK) but just trying to see if the ceiling lights are usually wired in series, or all traced back to one junction box, or even if they are all on the same fuse in the fuse box.

I have the new LED lights in the trailer and I want to add a global dimmer, but I don't want to rip apart any more walls until I know more about how they are typically wired throughout most trailers so I know where to tap in. (I know how to run wiring, I know how to make a PWM dimmer, I just need to know how its wired typically in FR trailers) Thank you.

The only lights I ever remember being wired in series were the old fashioned XMAS tree incandescent lights. One bulb goes, they all go. Thery're wired in parallel. My overhead lights are powered from one fuse. I have a different unit than you. If not marked, pull a fuse and see.

Well knowing that's how yours is (from one fuse) that's a good start for me. Ill take a look and see sometime this week. Like i said, i wasn't sure if the fuse box was the best place to get to that wiring or there was another place somewhere, but that makes sense, its all gotta go thought there at some point. Thank You.
