Ceiling Fan in 29RE

Does anyone know if the Silverback 29RE is prewired for a ceiling fan? If so, does the ceiling have reinforcement to mount the ceiling fan to? Also, where would it be located?
I'm assuming it is not, because there is no place marked, nor is there a switch anywhere.
I sure would like to mount a small 110 volt AC ceiling fan in our unit.

Silverbacks don't normally come with ceiling fans like Cedar Creeks. That's one of the tradeoffs not going with a Cedar Creek besides a dropped frame, more real wood, and more standard eye candy. When we ordered our 33IK, we asked for a ceiling fan and $149.00 later we got one wired in while they were building it.

Would assume the framework to be the same on them. Not sure. Found REFER doesn't mean refrigerator outlet on the breaker panel this weekend.

This is mine 2010 29 RE. Hope it helps.

From back of camper.

Kinda to the left side of AC and vent. Probably the brace in between them.

Diesel guy; not the answer I wanted, but it is what I expected. Thanks
Pipeliner, did you install that fan yourself, or did your camper come with the fan. Your pictures are hugely helpful. Thank you.

Was there. My guess is that that they run wiring along wiring for AC.

It fits with slides with a couple of inches to spare.

We were told (Spring 2015) by the factory rep at the show when we placed the order that the wiring and related switch is not pre-installed on Silverbacks. It's just like if you don't opt for the washer/dryer hookups ... there is no plumbing or wiring going to say the front closet.

I was meaning if he wanted to run wires. A frost sensor went bad on AC. We have the first digital thermostat that barely got used for a year. Didn't have the money to upgrade both pieces but the tech said it could be done to pull wires thru. I could see a headache if they have it zip tie or hard turn. It's up to OP. There are people on here that can do things I cannot or don't have the guts to try.

Ceiling Fan

Hi.
We have 2015 Silverback 31RK. It did come with a ceiling fan. It may have been part of the package that came with it.
