Vent Fan Replacement

Just recently purchased a 2008 Eagle Super Lite 28.5, my 2 vents don't have fans and i wanted to install the Vortex II fans in them but cannot find the power source to connect them to.. any suggestions and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

On mine there was a light nearby. So I just made a hole in the foam insulation and ran wires to the fans..

When you remove the ceiling light fixture, you will see the white and black 12VDC power source wires coming out of the ceiling. You will also see the slip on connectors on the back of the light assembly. You need to splice directly into the two wires supplying the 12VDC and not use any of the connectors on the light switch.

Sorry, I do not remember the wire gauge I used.
