Fantastic Fans

I have a 2010 Cougar 327-RES and would like to install a Fantastic Fan in the kitchen, my challenge is that the vent that is currently there is only a manual vent. Are these pre-wired for a motorized vent? How would one know? It is in the highest point in the ceiling so I would like to install the 7350 FF because it has a remote and is thermostatically controlled, my plan is to set it to come on and remove the heat during the day while I am away.

Next part of the question is if it is not pre-wired what would be the easiest solution to wire the 12v fan?

Thanks

Rob

I installed 2 FF in my Class C.

One in the bathroom where there was only a small fan, the power was there so it was an easy mode.

The other was towards the front and below is about what I had to do.

You should be able to remove the inside plastic shroud for the vent and look and see if there is power routed to it. If not you may have a light close to the vent and could try to pull a wire from the light.

In most cases the RV's have power routed to the vent location as if they install the FF as an option they want to have it prewired.

You could call the manufacturer of your rv and ask them if there it is pre-wired. Jayco pre-wired a trailer that I helped install a Fantastic fan on.

Take the four screws out of the inside vent shroud and look. On my Coleman it was not pre-wired, but there was a light close by that I could tap power from. On my Concord, their are wires in the ceiling by the vent for a fan.

That's what we did when we had our Cougar. There was a vent opening in the LR & we got power for it from a nearby ceiling light.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
