On my silverado the driving lights go off if the high beams are on, you are able to see what about the person coming at you. Maybe the wire to the roof was off road lighting that would work too

Also illegal in some areas/states. Here in WA it's legal to have 4 lights on at once, then there are the jerks that have their high and low beams on as well as their driving lights, and they're misaimed so you're blinded. Both conditions are illegal here too.

Next comes the coloring crayons for illustration...
Im just saying that the post was said above the drivers side. People misuse roof/ceiling often im one of them. Chances are the actual known reason the wires will never be known

My secret wiring mods are going to go with me when I die.

Most are added wiring for additional horns, lights, etc.

Mine has not reached "Vintage status" yet, but why would anyone try to stop a roof leak from the inside? I also still have not figured out the unsealed Philips head screw above the driver through the EPDM into the wood underlayment. Apparently Campers World thought it was OK when we bought it as they failed to seal that one too.

Just part of the fun.

What amazes me is how people now days, who are lucky to have a job, are so lazy.

Im guilty of 2 tubes of sealant when when only one line is needed. On an old rig functionality overcomes how it looks. To a point. No gobs hanging but ill fill the crevice till it oozes out then wipe clean. I hate leaks....

It's time to tone the rhetoric down.

(Just GOTTA LOVE folks who try to offer "solutions", when they fail to actually READ what the QUESTION was...)
roof

Noun: The structure forming the upper covering of a building or vehicle.
Verb: Cover with a roof: "the yard had been roughly roofed over with corrugated iron".
Synonyms noun. top - ceiling - roofing
verb. cover
EXCUSE me... I am legally blind that early in the morning. Just trying to be helpful... and you didn't have be that way. [moderator edit]

Down boy! You'll blow a gasket like that. Were all newbies here in one way or another.

AND, for the record the pic you have provided, shows a fan installed, NOT outside on a ROOF, but INSIDE, on a CEILING...

Next comes the coloring crayons for illustration...
