Wiring vent fan

I just removed a broken roof vent from our 23' safari. It was the rear vent.
I'd like to install a new vent with a fan but there is no electrical at this site.
What is the best way to either run a wire from a light or run a new circuit?
I am a electrical novice.

Good question, Hopefully I will have this problem soon. Any suggestions?

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Are you sure there is no wiring there. I thought AS put the wiring in for options whether they are there or not. Was a fan an option in that location for your unit? If so, run your fingers way back under the insulation when the old vent is out.

I know my 07 had all the wiring for the audio upgrade and TV, which was not ordered by PO.

A call to Randy McNeely at AS might help.
