This year I decided to install the FASS transfer pump and add a pressure fuel gauge so I bit the bullet and ran a piece of 3/4" conduit, pushing it from the front above the generator compartment passenger side between the rails. Had to drop the center compartment ceiling but was able to get it through. Glad I did because later I added the Bluesea ML-ARC and needed an extra wire front to back so I actually ran a group of 5 wires through it and now have 4 extras for future use.
More power to you! I read your original post for this install. WOW Not an easy task. I'm thinking that a tube that size would be easier than a fiberglass rod. Less chances for it to get hung-up on/in tie-wraps or bundled wire junctions. I cheated and took the easy way out.... Relying on frame clips to hold the wire out of harms way.
If I ever have her up on a lift or over a pit I might give it a try. Too bad the factory didn't foresee someone wanting to add wiring and just provide a path....

When you push the fiberglass rod up into the upper compartment it will come out behind the hole the rest of the wires come thru. Using 3/16 in rods from Harbor Freight
I was able to grasp the end and pull it thru the hole and out the opening of the removed camera housing.
A little hard to see but it can be done!
