I was hoping to fish the wire through the air conditioner. However, I may end up drilling a hole in my rubber roof.
My 10W solar panel is mounted beside the refrigerator chimney vent, and the wire runs down the chimney, then through the floor to the battery compartment.
FWIW, the 10W panel does not supply enough watts to keep the battery bank (5-12V batteries) fully-charged. I have plans to replace it with a larger panel.
