When you say feel for other wires itís so you donít hit them when you drill?
I assume that area behind the medicine cabinet goes all the way to the basement?
Appreciate the help!
X2 what Phil said, that interior wall on the forward side of the mid half bath is basically empty so easy to feed wires. And you can also reach the roof area from the access panel at the top.
In my case I ran 4 CAT5 and 3 RV-C cables from the basement up that wall and then over to the firefly cabinet on the outside wall.
I used a string with a large nut tied to it as a weight and just let gravity take it down thru the wall. Under the half bath sink I removed the floor of the cabinet which exposes the aquahot heat exchanger, the nut was just sitting on top of it and I didn't even need to drill any holes. From there you can easily go straight into the basement, just thru the thin material covering the cargo bay ceiling or even thru the foam surrounding one of the other pipes or wires. In my case the floor of the sink cabinet is just above the aquahot bay. I suggest running a small diameter bit up from the cargo bay side before final drilling.
