How To Wire A Powered Roof Vent In An Area That Doesn't Have Pre-Existing Wiring


My new 2022 Surveyor Legend travel trailer has a non-electric vent over the bed. Its the 14inch size. I want to put in the Maxxair vent but dont know where the wires would be run from. I cant find a wiring schematic online for my trailer. Any advice would help.

It is possible that the wires are already ran and you won't have to worry about running wire, it's worth looking into before committing to running wires; the best way to obtain this information is to get your VIN number, and contact the trailer manufacturer.

If it turns out that your trailer isn't pre-rigged, then you can use a 12v power source like a battery, and run a black wire for your power and a white wire for your ground to your MaxxFan Deluxe # MA00-07500K. The black wire must be ran to a switch like # BL0108-00 and then to the battery with a 10amp fuse placed 6 inches from the positive post on the battery terminal, and then ground the switch.
