Neat! I hope my 2015 28DS has such by the other vents as well, pulling trigger in some fantastics soon.

Vent wiring

I have installed Fantastic fans in all three vents, all were pre-wired. None of the pre-wiring was switched.

That's the pisser part! FR didn't get smart until later 2015 models to figure out...DOH! we should put pre wire in the vents in case our customers want to add fans. LOL!!!

drivmsafe......

Did you check out all the way around the opening on all sides. I have a 2010 Georgetown, and found wiring a bit back in from the opening. A quick glance and I would have missed finding it.

As far as being on a switch already....no problem. I put my own switches in. I didn't want the fan to only come on if "X" was turned on.

Vent wiring

Both my wife and I can easily reach the switch on the Fantastic fan so a switch seemed unnecessary. The power to the fans in all vents is not tied to the bathroom light switch.

I have a 2013 Coachman Mirada and all vents had wire easy to reach once you take the plastic shroud from the old vent off. And the FR3 has no fan in the bathroom? I thought all RV's had vent fans in the toilet area. BTW...I added a remote control Maxx fan in the living room vent 'cause my wife is too short to reach the buttons.

Thumbs up MaxxFan install

Well it took about 4 1/2 hours to get this far . Most of time on removing old seal stuff, finish trim inside later. Yes roof needs cleaning bad but severe drought cant use water now.
