Electric at the front vent on 2104s for a Max Fan

We purchased our Rockwood 2104s this last December and when we ordered it in September the salesman ask if we wanted to purchase the Max Fan for the front vent. At the time we didn't think it was important to have so we said no. It comes with the Max Fan in the bathroom vent and it does a great job moving the air.

After camping in it we found that we would like to have one in the front vent. We would like to install an after market Max Fan in the front vent. Does anyone know if there is a 12 volt electric line at the front vent. We are hoping that we will just have to remove the existing vent and install the Max Fan.

Thanks in advance....

interesting, as I just noticed our son's rockwood signature ultralight has the front vent, with no fan, but it certainly has some 12v wires showing there. I imagine it's run for the fan, if the owner wants to add one later... if you remove your vent you'll probably find it.

If no wiring for the fan, then just wire it from the nearest ceiling light. I've done this in two different rigs,,,no problems. Just make sure you don't wire it on the switch side if any are there.

I don't have any knowledge of your unit, but I installed two fans in our Rockwood. It left me with two choices, one was to tie into a switched circuit, the other was run a completely new circuit. Since I didn't want to turn on a lamp to run fan I opted for the latter.

We have ducted AC venting so I was able to run wire thru the ducts (not the best way but the wire races were packed full of speaker wires and other runs making it an impossible route).

The AC duct was very near my lighting control board, removing that I drilled a small hole thru to the duct to fish wire down the inside the wall to service panel added the new circuit to it gave it a fuse and the rest was history. Easy peasy.

This is definitely on my list of mods.
We rented a 2019 2104s before we decided to purchase one. The 2019 had the fan over the bed as a push fan. No fan in the head. Really seemed to cool the bed area way better than our 2020 with the pull fan in the head. Even on the highest setting. Adding a push fan over the bed would be nice.

It's almost cool enough here to start working on projects.

What kind of projects do you have to do in the bedroom for it to be cool?


Oh okay, now I get it.

fan install

I had the same problem with my Flagstaff 21FBRS I was able to run a wire down the ceiling channel from the vent opening to the wall where the fuse panel was then down to the fuse panel and hook the wire up to a empty fuse port. My fuse panel was under the refrigerator so I just went down in the back of the refrigerator to the back of the panel.
