Power cord reel removal

I am looking for any advice on removing the power cord reel so I can access the 6 ga solar prep wire. I think this wire terminates behind the cord reel but I can't see much with the cord reel in place. Wondering if any forum members have attempted this and if they have any tips?
I have followed the wire from the roof to the basement. During the factory delivery the tech labeled these wires (2). The wires are tied with a few others and enter the basement along the passenger side above the fourth bay door. The wires are routed into a 1 1/2" black pipe which runs across the basement, above the chassis frame to the drivers side. The wires come out of this pipe above the Oasis unit and turn sharply to the rear of the coach into the back of the electrical bay.

Any advice would be very helpful and appreciated.

There is no need to pull the power cord reel, just reach in and grab the solar wire, there is only a positive cable. The other is grounded to the frame.
