Fantastic fan for Swift 185RB?

Just wondering if anyone has changed out the roof vent with a fantastic fan ( or similar) in their Swift 185RB? We have them in our motorhome and love them and want to put one in the Swift. The only concern is whether or not the Swift is pre-wired. We had an older unit that only had vents but had the wiring for both 120vac air conditioner and 12vdc fan. REALLY convienent!!

I'll be putting one in regarless but wanted to get an idea of how much work was involved!

Re: Fantastic

I don't think the Swift series are prewired for anything. If no cable hookup, doubt they would run "what if' power lines. Good luck, take notes on where you eventually get your power from. I'd like to do the same in my 184BH washroom.

I put one in my 184bh. I tapped into the wires from the light. Pulled the extended wires right along the ceiling. Install took 20 minutes. Works great. I got one off if amazon for $37.

Completed the replacement of the stock vent with a fantastic fan this weekend. I'd intended to use "wiremold" to bring power in from the light over the table but was able to pull the wire through the roof as there is no joist between the two!
Looks totally like it was there from the begining!
I'd post a few pictures of the install but apparently I can't upload directily to the form...

My husband just finished installing one in our bathroom and it is GREAT!! He wired into the light in the bathroom and ran the wire to the existing vent. We purchased just the fan upgrade from Amazon. It was really easy to install. The hardest thing was fishing the wires through the insulation and the drilled holes in the vent frame and ceiling joist.
