Wires/Power for stove vent & roof vent.

My stove vent motor was seized up, so I took the old roof vent motor and swapped fans. Then I discovered the wires to the stove vent produce no power (I tested with a light bulb). On a hunch I tried my mint newly installed Fantastic Fan (the trailer is being restored, when I took it in to the installer, I had no battery in the trailer), the roof fan doesn't work either. I figure they both share wiring. In the street side closet are wires to the reading lamps over the street couch, which I've been working on (the ball socket came undone, I managed to fix it) and I think these two sets of wires from the hole next to the electric box in the closet may/may-not be related to my vent power problem.
Question; where do the stove vent power wires go when they disappear into the curb-side ceiling? WHere do I look for the other ends of them?

All 12 volt systems work (pump, Fantastic Fan, lights), except for the stove exhaust fan. I pulled it out and tested directly to battery, works. Lightbulb applied to stove vent wires does not light. Arg! Darn stove vent!

Check for fuses by your battery charger

I just went out to check those fuses. They tested fine. But on a hunch I pulled the newly installed Fantastic Fan frame off. Yep, that was it. The installer at the Airstream Dealer, when he put in the Fantastic Fan, simply taped off the "extra" wires and tucked them behind the FF frame. Dork

Thanks!!
