24.1 Vegas Vent Mod

Hello all, I have a 2018 24.1 Vegas. Considering changing one of the vents to a fantastic fan. I loved them in the Sprinter and Newmar. For those familiar with the electric wiring, how would I proceed with adding a wall switch to this. Where would I tie in to the electric?
Thanks

I don’t think that you need a wall switch. My 2016 Axis came with a Fan in the bedroom and it operates with a switch on the fan that I can reach standing on the floor. The fan takes 12v to operate and there is 12v wiring in the ceiling for the lights. I’ll bet you can find of “fish” a wire from there. Use the search function in this forum to search for fan installation. I remember this topic being discussed previously with installation instructions.

Thanks i'll search a little better. I loved hitting the switch and it automatically opens and starts spinning. In mild climates it's as important as my AC in Florida. A must when you can't run the generator or can't plug in.

Yes. We have used the fan more than the A/C in our travels, often because we like to use National Parks and Forests that do not have electric.

Exclamation

we didn't like having to be able to 'hardly' reach the bathroom vent fan 'switch', so I replaced it with the very simply 'pull switch with drop cord', like on closet light bulbs or a ceiling fan... works great, easy, and easily reachable.

it simply attaches to the same two 12v lines as your current switch does...easy.

Does the rocker switch use a round hole, or did you make a cover plate with a hole for the pull chain switch?

Exact size hole. Just swap it out.
