Hard to describe but some of the roofs have thin cushion material between the vinyl and the wood liner. This thin area can be penetrated carefully with a stiff wire with the end sharpened. Spinning it gently it can be fed to an edge where you can sneak a wire out and perhaps stuff behind some moulding. Yes you might see a small bulge of wire at first but it will usually level itself out and not be seen.

I have both fans operating from the remotes now.
The fans are: Global Electric Products Inc.# 151119624086 Non-Brush DC 12V 36" Ceiling Fan for RV. They stick down about 5-1/2" and cost $115.00 ea.
I am still waiting for the PSs from China. I have the duplexs wired in so all I have to do is plug them in AND CONNECT THE 12vdc.
I am not sure what pictures would be helpful?

Where they are mounted would be a start, plus any you took during.

I ordered a 31" 12Vdc fan with remote to place in the bedroom over the bed.The wiring will be easy.After removing the a/c trim there to the right (driver side)are the wires going to the ceiling florescent light fixture (violet=12v white=common). I'll do a quick splice at that location and run an inline 3amp fuse in the a/c duct to the fan.The 12ga violet wire is on a 20amp fuse. The fan is rated at 1.2amps the draw with the fan on high is .62amps.This connection will be powered by the existing wall switch and I can shut off the overhead lights at each fixture as mentioned in earlier post.I need to come up with the best way to attach the fan to the ceiling. There is only 3 inches of metal in the a/c duct heading towards the rear of the coach the rest of the duct is made up of 1/4 inch plywood on the bottom with foam for the other 3 sides.I was thinking on placing a 1/4 inch piece of plywood in the a/c duct and sandwich the existing ceiling material.I'm open to any other thoughts.To me 1/4 inch in the ceiling is not a lot of support for the fan.
