Little Help...# of Skylights in 2018 30DS

So yesterday we finalized a deal on a new 30DS. We are excited, have looked it over very well and identified a few minor items to address. We also have a few things being done pre-delivery like sumo springs, roof-top sat dome install, etc.

One item we thought about adding as we were driving home yesterday was MaxxAir fans in the "skylights" or roof vents.

I know there is one in the bathroom, but is there also one in the living room? And bedroom?

And do you know if those locations are prewired? Or have access to power?

They should be prewired except for the bathroom.Quick and easy install. The bath you will have to fish a wire over to the light.

All four of mine were prewired. I installed four Fan-Tastic vents with Vent Cover and Bug screen.

I installed two Fan-tastic Vent 807350 with wireless remote, one in the bedroom and other in the kitchen. I did this as my wife can not reach the ceiling. I installed 801250 a now wish I had a remote for the bathroom. I installed a 803350 in the front.

I also installed the Blue OX TruCenter Steering Control. I have used it for a year and love it. When I feel a crosswind, I just hit the button to re-center and drive on.

Mine is a 2016. We had 4 fantastic fans installed, with covers and screens. They are worth it!
