'74 Sovereign Roof Vent Question

We are planning on replacing two of our roof vents in our 74 31' Sovereign with Fantistic vents. All these vents have been replaced over the years and the one in the bath has a 12 volt motor to power the fan so power is there for a new Fantastic Vent.

The vents in the front do not have motors so no electric power appears to be available. Here's the question? Did one or both of the vents in the front have electric powered vents when it was manufactured? If so, power may be there that we can use but is capped off. We would appreciate input from those of you that have encountered this situation.

All of the vents have a 12 volt supply, but when a motor is not used, the wire is hidden in the ceiling at the vent.

Since the 12 volt power wires for virtually everything run down the center of the roof you can probably find a hot line nearby when you pull the roof vents you have out. I think 2 of the 3 roof vents had a power fan in them originally, but I am not sure about that. At any rate, I think you will be able to find power close when you get the old vents out.
