Switch Wiring for a Bath Exhaust Fan

How to Install a Bath Exhaust Fan and Wiring the Wall Switches to Operate the Fan and Light.

Options When Wiring Switches for a Bath Exhaust Fan and Lights

Electrical Question: I’m doing some self wiring. I’m installing a exhaust fan in a double wide.
I’ve put two rocker switches in the wall, one to operate the exhaust by itself, and one to operate the light in it and the one above the vanity.
Ive got one rocker switch that will turn the light in it off and on, but the other switch will turn the vanity light on with the exhaust fan.
What can I do to get the vanity light to come one with the exhaust light separate from the fan?

This electrical question came from: Michael, from Albany, Kentucky
