I've looked at some of those construction photos and you're right, some show some of the wiring that's hidden in the finished trailer. If I'd have realized when my trailer was under construction that there wouldn't be a schematic in the manual I would have been much more aggressive in taking my own construction photos.

I'll be at ETI on Tuesday and if I have a chance I'll snap some detail shots if I can.

So maybe I can pop them corner padding buttons and remove the padding to more easily snake my solar controller remote wires up from that corner's floor to the dinette ceiling cabinet area. Looks like a good avenue for doing no harm.

Myron, the corner padding is a good wire chase, go for it.

No doubt. When I was doing my raised dinette I noticed ETI ran wires up that route on the drivers side.

Actually the foam corner thingies are quite flexible; I've just tucked wires behind it without removing it. Use a plastic tool for smoothing sheet rock mud.

Myron, the corner pieces come off, and are re-attached, very easily. I've removed mine multiple times for modifications. Can't tell I've been there. Have fun!!

Got it done, thanks much. Now I'm wanting to run wires from inverter under dinette seat street side, to back to the shore power duplex outlet under the fridge. Why? A boondocker by choice and now got solar in my pocket. Anyone done this conversion?

If I understand correctly, you want to power the outlet under the fridge from the inverter.

I've installed my inverter but haven't had time to deal with this aspect. I agree, it's a nuisance to run an extension cord along the floor to a device when a wall outlet is nearby.

Since the wiring to the outlets runs from the converter I was going to look at putting a double pole-double throw switch nearby to act as a transfer switch. I haven't looked at how many outlets are on one circuit but probably several are. Is there any reason why this can't be done?

Easily done. See Pulling Wires Front To Back

Right, Ron. Two - repeat TWO - duplexes next to the bed and both are useless unless you're using shore power. Why didn't I see this coming when doing my build sheet? (Maddening!) I will replace the current (no pun intended) duplex wiring with a new run from the inverter. -- hoping, Doug, it really is easily done. Getting a hand in there down and dirty behind the water pump will be fun.
