Our BR vent is prewired for a vent fan, but nothing is showing. The sales person stated that when removing the old vent, the wires are there. You may want to check with a dealer to see if you are that lucky.

The light will need to be on to power the fan so make sure this will not be an issue.

Why would it have to be wired to the light switch ? There should be no reason that the fan cant be wired directly to the power source before the light switch, not after?

I want to place one with both an in and an outflow in my forward vent in our Rockwood 2304KS. There is a light close by.
Also need one of those Maxxair covers to eliminate the rain issues. I LOVE the one that came with the bathroom in our tt

Well I installed all 3 maxxair fan covers and yes the vent does hit the cover at the very end. However does not seem to be an issue. Should even stop any noise/rattle the fan lid could make in a bad wind.

If the light is operated by a wall switch, the power (black wire) should come first to the switch, then to the fixture. The neutral (white wire) would bypass the switch and go directly to the fixture. If your unit has a cigarette lighter type outlet near the switch, this is the logical way to wire. I am thinking that this is the wiring method in campers. In this instance, the light switch has to remain on for the fan to work. If your ceiling fixture has an on/off switch, the light would be operated from fixture switch and the fan would also have to be operated at the fan (unless you wanted neither on).

An optional wiring method is to wire the hot lead at the fixture, then bring the hot lead through switch and back to the black wire on the fixture. The latter is used to eliminate long runs of neutral wire. I don't think your that lucky. But, if you are, you won't need to go through the switch.

This is a fan we are considering.

Max Air on both kitchen and bath. No issue. Saves our senses when cooking during inclement weather.
Sensors are a GREAT thing until it rains and they fail! I HATE GADGETS!

Sorry I'm late responding, but I ran into the same thing a few months ago. I found somewhere that the lid motor stops by sensing the current flow. When the lid hits the fan cover, the current increases and the motor stops. Before the fan cover was installed, the cover extends until the brackets stop it, Again, the current increases to the point that the motor shuts off.
