Installing Fan Skylights Dutchman Denali

I need to install aftermarket skylights in my Dutchman Denali 287RE. I was hoping that there would already be wiring in place, but there was not. Dutchman couldn't help me at all.

The bathroom was easy, it already had a fan. But I need to wire in my living room and bedroom. I was wondering if anybody knew the best place to tap into the 12V system.

There are lights close by, but they run off switches. I don't want to be forced to have the lights on to run them.

Thanks in advance.

Might be able to fish a wire down to the switch and pick up the hot wire.

On my Coleman I was able to pick the hot up off the lights because they were switched on the light itself.

There is madness to my methods
