Chateau - Power at Vents?

The 2017 Thor Chateau that we got has a fan in the bathroom vent, but none of the other vents have any fans. Does anyone know if there is wiring at these additional vents so that I can add in powered fans. If not, is there any place easy to tie into power?

If not, has anyone found reasonably priced Solar vents for the standard 14" vent? Just looking to get some better air flow in the camper so I do not have to run the AC when it is nice out.

Thank you for any thoughts or help.

If you pull the inner trim ring off and look around the edges you'll be able to see if any wiring is present. Some coaches have fan wiring in place and some don't, may have it in one location and not another. We have three vents on our coach, two are wired, one isn't.

Even if wiring isn't present it is often easy to run some wiring to a nearby light fixture (of course if that fixture is on switched power somewhere then the fan will be switched too).
