12v power

Hello fellow Streamers!
I am wanting to add a 12 VSirocco fan above the TV in our 2017 International 25 FB to circulate some air in the dining area. I would like to know what is the closest source of constant 12 V power that I can pull from. I installed one in the bedroom and pulled from the light switch and we love it. iím not an electrician but I am learning to be but would rather run it past you pros
As always your advice is always appreciated

Since this is "never twice the same way" Airstream, even with the same trailer, somebody still might guess wrong.

The good news is that the light switches (as you have found) are a good source of power. Since you have lights just about everywhere, routing to one of them normally is the way to go.

The other advantage of most of the light switches / wires is that they are mostly easy to get to. Pulling out the fridge to get to a "close" wire .... not so easy.
