same here just spliced into the light in the bathroom, no other cutting is required since the hole is the same size

Yep, that is what I bought for mine. You will need to tap into a nearby light for power.

Thanks, I'm picking this up today and planning to install this weekend. Where did you run the wires from the light? Maybe I'll see when I take down the light, but is there space to run them inside the roof or do they just go across the ceiling and in view?

There is a gap between the roof and the ceiling. If the light is close you can probable just reach in and pull the wires over to tie into them. If not you may have to snake the wires over from the vent to the light with a clothes hanger or something.

For some reason I can't get my fan to fit the opening. The plastic tabs on the side hit the metal frame of the vent cover before the crank spindle reaches into the gear drive. Did you have to trim anything or make modifications to fit?

Scratch that, got it to fit. Should the Forward speeds take air out of camper and Reverse blow air down inside? To me that seems opposite but I matched the wires by color. Click image for larger version

Your camper, make it go which ever way you want.
