Hi Everyone,

I need to run some wires from the battery compartment toward the middle of the trailer. Has anyone done this job ? I don't think going under the floor will work. I am looking for ideas to where to run the wires. I want to mount a remote switch for my inverter. And I also have a remote display for the surge protection that needs to mounted outside of the battery compartment.

Looking for ideas. Thanks for any help.

How far to the middle? You can run up to the ceiling of the basement (take down the ceiling) and across to the utility area behind the basement wall which puts you under your stairs and it is all wide open under there to fish up walls, etc.

If you need to go further than that, you might as well go right down the street side frame by the batteries where the rest of the wiring harness goes and fish it down the frame above the belly material until you get where you need to go. Typically from there it is at least easy to get to the island. Anywhere else is pretty difficult.

I mounted my remote for the EMS in the panel with all the other switches/controls. Easy drop from there into the belly, then removed a section of the basement ceiling and routed to the Battery compartment.

Me too...............the only "special tool" I needed was a small electricians fish tape which I had anyway, having been an electrician for 40 years. Going over the ceiling in the "basement" was the hardest part, but not too bad. Having the display inside the coach proves valuable when you stay at parks that has less than stellar voltage in their electrical systems. Plus if the park is full of larger RV's, the load gets more than they counted on. Seeing the real time voltage and current on both 50A legs is valuable to shed load before the system shuts the whole trailer down.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for the responses. It looks like the trim pieces on the ceiling could be held in place using brads. Are the trim pieces the only thing that holds up the ceiling panels ? Right now I don't have access to the trailer to check out the ceiling.

Please keep the help coming,
Al
