Wiring for a MaxxAir fan

I'm wondering if there is a hot wire run up by the vents in our T28FQDX Shockwave. Thinking about installing a Maxxair fan in the living quarters of our trailer. If not how do you get to power for a fan.

If you remove the vent trim from the ceiling and look or feel in the gap you should find the loose wires laying there.

Not all vents are pre-wired for a vent fan, in those cases you might connect to a light close by. If the light has a switch on the wall it will have to be on to use the fan. As long as the light fixture has a switch on it, that will work fine, if not then you will have to install a new fixture with a built-in switch or install a switch at the fixture yourself.
