'64 Globetrotter wired for a fan???

I have ordered a fan-tastic fan for my 64 Globetrotter, is it pre wired or will I need to wire it?

64 Airstreams used a transformer that they called a "univolt".

That transformer had 2 secondary windings, one for 12 volts AC and the other for 19 volts AC.

The 12 volt wiring went to the lights. The 19 volt wiring went to the fans.

A 12 DC motor runs fairly well on 19 volts AC.

Yes, the trailer is wired for a fan, but I would use caution when using a fan-tastic fan.

I am installing a 12 volt dc system. Since there is no fan in it now, I assume it was replaced with the skylight that is there now. I was hoping the wiring was there for a fan, sounds like it should be there. Thanks for your help.
