Fishing wire through the front cap

Has anyone tried to fish solar wire through the front of their ORV trailer under the fiberglass cap? I'm thinking about an easy way to run from the roof to the bottom front of the trailer without cabinet work.
Thanks

I did to pull wiring for rear flood lights (‘19 24RLS).
It’s not much fun- I wasn’t able to run the wire straight down, I ended up having to angle it over to the curb side due to crossmembers and insulation running laterally. I ended up opening an access hole in the curb side wardrobe as a pull point. I cut the paneling with an Xacto saw so I could use the cut out as the cover for the hole.
I started at the access hole for the solar controller and fed an electricians fishtape over to the pull point. From there I ran the fish down out the base of the cap.
One thing that saved me my sanity was an inexpensive ($40) Amazon 15’ endoscope.
I had tried without it but kept hitting the blocking.
I was able to feed the scope over gently without tearing up the insulation and tape the fishtape to it and pull it back. You literally have to see where you are going and once I got the scope over to the side near the access hole I had to reach up and grab it and pull it to the hole. I shone a bright work light in the hole so I had a target to go for when I was fishing the scope over to the hole. I did the same thing at the bottom of the cap when I went from the access hole to out of the cap.
Like I said it is not fun and you have to take your time so you don’t tear up the insulation or get the fishtape stuck.
