I can't on mine because the roof A/C is there. We often open one of three windows in the bedroom (depending on where we want air flow) and then turn on the Fantastic Fan in the livingroom on high with all other windows closed. It will pull a nice breeze in.

I really wish I could put a small ceiling fan in.

I have put one in for a customer that had a A/C in the bedroom the vent went right in front of the A/C unit pick up 12v off the light and all was good so it can be done.

The ceiling fan would be nice. Just need to find a stud that you can connect to and then feed 12 volts over. Maybe a 24"-30" fan.

We have a ceiling fan........one night the DW hit the fan switch by mistake. I got up to go to the bath room and felt a breeze. I reached my hand up to see where it was coming from and whacked a finger as the fan's blade hit it. Turned on the light to see the fan spinning. deSanford

When we purchased our coach (different than yours but the idea is the same) I had a Fan Tastic put in the bathroom which is adjacent to the bedroom. They used to power from the lights. Fan tastics move a lot of air and the proximity to our bedroom gives a lot of ventilation. Perhaps you have a smaller fan that you could just replace with a fantastic and get the results you desire.

Fantastic have a screen over the fan blades.

Framing in a new hole might be a bit daunting a task for many, but it could be done....

You may already have 12 volts at the opening. About half of the manuf. prewire the vent openings for vent fans. Just remove the trim and check around the opening for wires. There may be a small hole with the wire doubled back into it.

We have a 06 Endeavor PAQ. Our toilet is in a small room on the driver side behind the shower. Ours came with a Fantastic Fan in the room so if your layout is about the same as ours I would think you can install the fan and there may already be wiring for it.

src, we have a 06 diplomat pdq, until you get your fan installed you may try opening your two bed slide windows about and inch or so using a small prop. The fan in the bathroom pulls a lot of air over the bed area. Also when you get your fan installed in the bedroom you will still need to open the windows to get a draft. Give it a try. Works great for us.

The screen is on the inside of the windows, making it almost impossible to have the window open, except in the wide open position -- I don`t know who came up with this idea for a prop so you can have multiple choices, from 5 inches to 1 inch -- Harry Martin (Happycarz) sent me a drawing of this prop, & I made it from Oak -- It sits on top of the screen, & the window frame, where the latch is, slips into the desired slot --
It is 5 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide -- slots are cut at 1 inch , 1/4 inch wide -- Bill Willard

src, let me explain a little further. The screen removes in about 2 seconds. Once the screen is removed you can take a small block of wood dowel about 1 in long and place it between the open window and the frame. You can then put the screen back on and enjoy the breeze that your fan will pull through the small openings.
