71 Wiring for a Fantastic Fan

Does anyone know if 71s are prewired for roof vent fans? In my Tradewind the front vent has a OEM fan but the other 2 roof vents do not. Worse case scenario is I run a line from the ceiling light next to them. Any other wiring suggestions?

All the ceiling vents have wires going to them, except the Astrodome.

You can partially drop the ceiling in the area of a vent, to find the wire.

I am out of town , relaxing, and do not any Airstream info with me.

The color of those wires is listed in a 1973 and newer "service manuals", which is the same as you have in your coach.

No Problem

I had no problem tapping into 12 volt when I replaced the original rear (non-power) vent with a Fantastick Fan. The harness is very near the vent...be careful not to cut it.
