Would like to install an exhaust fan

Hey, y'all, we have a 174BH. I'd love to have an exhaust fan installed in the bathroom. We had a Fantastic Fan in another camper and that thing would pull air like a whole house fan. The dealer told us they couldn't install a fan there because there is a stud between the light and the vent.

Could a solar fan be an option?

Thanks!

Don't you have a static vent in your bathroom, its usually a fantastic fan setup without the fan. You can buy just the fan and there may be power already there, if not pull power from ceiling light.

bathroom fan

I'm in the process right now of installing a Maxxair vent in my 174BH bathroom. Pulled 12v from the ceiling light by drilling a hole through the wood member between the light and fan opening. Tied into the wires in the light fixture and fished wires over to the fan opening. When you go to caulk in the new fan, buy the blue can of Ultrasealant Primer and get a tube of the Ultrasealant caulk by Dico. No other caulk will stick to the roof membrane because it is a TPO roof. I tried several different caulks by letting them dry on the membrane and then seeing how easily they could be pulled off; they pulled off too easily for my liking.

What is your experience when buying a ceiling fan. Can you share? And what is the best price do you suggest?
Thanks.
