I've seen many discussions about adding solar panels, etc. to motorhomes and I'm wondering how the wiring is routed when this kind of work is done. I understand the construction of a house and how to chase new circuits between walls, add outlets, etc. but have no idea on a coach. Before I go cutting any holes in the roof, wall, or floor I want to have a good idea of what I'm doing :-)! Any tips or sources are greatly appreciated.

TIA!

I've done lots of that stuff. The easiest way to get solar panel juice from the roof to the basement is down through the refrigerator vent cap. Run thew wire behind the reefer and then down into the interior behind a cabinet drawer and then down to the basement. For more tips and techniques on RV wiring, check out the RV Tech Library electrical chapter. Ther's some good stuff in there that I think you'll find interesting.
