F26RKS-Maxís Air fan install

Hi everyone, I have a 2019 Glacier Peak F26rks that we didn't order with the maxx air fans, the only thing I regret, so I'm looking to install one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. My bedroom vent is prewired for a 2nd A/C unit. I have a bundle of small 14-16awg wires that are blue, yellow, grey, red, and green, I also have 2 loops one yellow and one white that are 12awg. I belive the 2 loops are the 12v power i'm looking for but looking at the wiring diagram I think they are tied to the wall switch. Does anyone have ideas on where I can get 12v to run a Maxx Fan before I do some destructive examination with a multimeter?

Check with Todd at ORV, but I believe they run the wires for the fans when they build the trailer. Not sure of the colors at this point.
The multimeter is your friend when you start to trace the wires. You are looking for one wire that is hot all the time except when the battery disconnect is off.
Just remove the vent surround and you should find the wires you need nearby. They should be terminated with a wire nut and tape.

White loop is power, yellow is ground.

OK I figured the 2 loops to be what I'm looking for, I didn't want to either Penetrate the insulation or cut them for the purpose of testing without having some confidence. I think the main question is, are those a part of the lighting circuit that is switched.... Which obviously isn't what I want.
