Sabre 34TBOK - Fantastic Fan in Bedroom

In my 34TBOK I have a roof vent. I do not have the 2nd A/C as I only have 30 amp power at my seasonal site. How hard would it be to wire in a second fantastic fan? The unit is wired for a second a/c. I find the bedroom gets quite warm and does not cool off very quickly. Any suggestions or how to's?

Would be very easy!
Just use power from the light right there for power.
I want to do the same but the power vent is not in the budget right now.

Does the master bedroom have the ac ducts from the main unit at least cause we are looking at this unit also just want to make sure we do not have to drop another ac in before we would buy it

Yes there are two ducts in the bedroom coming from the main air conditioning unit.

At night I turn on the fantastic fan in the bath room and open the windows at the head of the bed. I leave the bathroom door open and the fan on low. I get a nice breeze through the bedroom windows. Leave the A/C on.

Is the current vent without any fan? Did not realize they did that...but the power may be there already. If not...

All you need is 12 volt. The Fantastic Fan takes 3 amps, which is not much. I recently installed this one, for less than 130 bucks it was easy to convince myself:

I also added their rain cover.

Yes current vent is without any type of fan. There is a light approx 12" from the vent opening.

your roof is probably an open frame construction, so it would be pretty easy to reach up and grab power from those wires. The interior baffle is held up by 4 screws, easy to pull it down and take a peak up to see if those wires are close by.

Like I said, the fan only takes 3 amps, most fixtures pull close to that with both lights on. replacing the vent was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.
