Question Replacing Powered Roof Vent with Non-Powered unit?

Yet another dumb question:

I'm replacing a fan-type Powered OEM roof vent with a Non-Powered replacement unit on the '89... I have 4 wires coming from the ceiling into the module/box (2 black, 2 white) and 2 leading from the box to the fan motor. Can I just power down the camper and clip/cap these and hide them in the ceiling, or will I lose power to any of the other stuff in the bathroom (rear)? Hopefully someone has a great answer, as I have the roof opened up, and rain is coming tomorrow. LOL~

Don't disconnect anything except the fan wires.

Ahhhh, herin lies the problem. The box is tacked to the frame, which is also being replaced, as I bought a complete unit. Looks as if I'll have to crack it open and be sure to feed power back to the other two, and just delete the smaller two after the switch. Some much for this "10 minute install" I was bragging to the wife about. Ha!

Just an update for anyone who is curious, after opening (destroying) the galvanized box, its simply (2) sets of three wires connected with a wirenut. Remove the small wires to the fan motor, reattach, and poke back in the vent frame. I told the wife I stand corrected; 15 minutes.
