Vista 31KE Fantastic Fan

Hello! New member here. My 31KE did not come with a fan in the main cabin roof vent. I would like to install a Fantastic Fan. Does anyone know if the coach is pre-wired for adding a powered fan in this location?

That would be an excellent question for Winnebago Support. They are very helpful.

How close is the nearest light? Could use that power source. PS - you’ll like the Fantastic fan. I have two. Very quiet. I hear good things about Maxxair too.

Thanks for replying. The nearest ceiling light is about 3 feet from the vent.

Adding a fan is a great idea. Are you going to use the existing vent and in lieu of the vent, or to the existing vent? You might want to take the nearby light apart and see if you can get the wire to that light and possibly splice in a new wire and guide it over to the vent for power for the fan. A stiff antenna stinger could be used to push the wire if the roof can accommodate that approach.

The closest light is likely switched, so the fan would be dependent on the light being on.

I’m trying to think of my 31 has seems in the ceiling or not. If so, it would be fairly easy to tuck a wire in there. This is something I’d like to do with mine as well.
