add fan to bedroom roof vent questions

Lots of ideas and help on here & internet. My question is, most recommend just grabbing power from a nearby light. My nearby lights are switched on the wall. Wouldn't the wall switch for the light have to be on all the time to power the fan with this configuration? It seems to me I need a hot 12 v and a 12v neg. Am I missing something?

Have you dropped the trim ring yet? It may already be wired for a fan, many were during that time period since it could have been an option.

X2, also do some snooping. The ceiling is roof trusses. You might be able to pull power from the bathroom or from your headboard area.

I've pulled 100's of feet wire through my TT. I spent a fair amount of time snooping and opening cabinets, to figure out how Jayco got wires through the camper. I was surprised by the number of hidden false panels.

I did drop the trim ring. Nothing right there. But i stuck my arm way into the space and found the run the the headboard area. I ways able to pull it enought to splice into. That is perfect to intercept as always on & not a switch leg.
Thank you!
