Fridge exhaust fan power?

I purchased a new Norcold fridge for our travel trailer, and thought I would install an exhaust fan to help with performance. Now I'm wondering where I hook it up to power?! I only see two "prongs" on the fridge and that's for the 12v power to the fridge. Can I somehow hook up to those same lines? I have one red and one black cord coming from the fan. It has nothing in the instructions, and an internet search hasn't given me anything. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I installed a helper fan in the back of my Norcold. I just spliced into the (+) Red positive wire and grounded the fan. I also wired it through a small toggle switch so I could control. The small fan came with a snap disc that I fastened to the burner tube so that when the burner is on the fan comes on. Do some Youtube searches and you'll probably get some hits on how to install. I

I used computer fans. I hooked my fan wires where the wires for the 12 volt for the fridge goes. That is if the fan you have is 12 volt.
