Need Electrical Schematic '61 Tradewind

I am currnetly evaluating my electrical system on my 61 Tradewind. It appears as two seperate systems, 12 V and 110 V. I have two vents. The front vent has 12V junction box just prior to the opening. The original fan has been removed and consists of just a metal roof vent. The rear vent has been replaced by a passive vent. I do not see any evidence of electrical power, however, it could be tucked up inside the ceiling. I plan on replacing these with FanTastic Vent Fans 12 V. I was hoping there was 12 V power nearby if the original vent had no fan. Does anyone have an electrical schematic for a 1961 Tradewind they could send me?
Thanks,
Scott

We have no electrical schematic but our rig was wired in parallel.
12v at most of all location of elec. service.

i found 12v inside the roof skin on our rear vent as well.

good luck

I have a 1960 which has the same electrical set up as yours. I put a converter on the DC and have both working. My DC is coming out of the trailer in front under the goucho. AC is coming out of a electrical box. Both are working. It took inviting a fellow airstream forums member over who figured out the wiring.

Thanks for the replys. I hope there is 12 V in parallel with the 110 V, that would make it a lot easier.
