251RKS - Can someone post up a Fantastic Fan video if you have done this?

I'd like to learn how to install a fantastic fan in our bathroom & possibly the other two vent openings later. Does anyone know if the non-bathroom vent openings are pre-wired for a powered fan? If you have done this can you post a video showing any detail that you can? Thanks a lot!!

I have a 3 speed fan in the bathroom. I had to buy Fantastic Fan covers as my Maxair II didn't fit. Gave Maxair II cover to daughter.
I will take pictures for you tomorrow.

Fantastic Fan was an option on our 2016 245BHS, and unfortunately ours did not get it. I agree that it should be standard. I have a Maxxair fan sitting in the garage waiting to replace the useless fan in the bathroom. Hoping to do it this week.
I'd bet no wires are at the other locations, but should be easy to pull from a light in the ceiling.

Easy

I replaced the old bathroom fan in our 2007 Georgetown without any trouble. Take great care when removing and reapplying the sealer. I then replaced the other standard no fan vent with a Fantastic fan. The wiring was already there and it was as easy as the other. I had maybe 4 hours in the whole job. I do wish I had spent the money for the remote because my petite wife can't reach the switch or crank to open them.

If you go to YouTube, there are lots of videos for installing Fantastic fans into RV's, both wired and having to run wiring from a nearby light. Matter of fact, you can find a video on YouTube for just about any type of installation you can imagine. Good luck and have fun.

I can't help you with your fan but I did want to let you know that I really like your user name. God bless you and good luck.

Remember mine is a 2017 251RKS. Not seeing any wiring in the kitchen vent area. But maybe you can run from a light. Each side of the vents they have 2x4's blocks to support the opening. The pictures without the wire is the kitchen. The one with is the bathroom Fantastic Fan Vent.
If you are going to use a Fantastic Vent Cover do at the same time. As you need to remove the 4 screws on the roof to install cover.
