best route for wires

so I have a 2006 jay feather LGT 29n and I'm trying to figure out the best path for running wires from the roof down into a wall or some other place.

I'm mounting solar panels and I want my charge controller inside by the pop out control and idiot light panel.

this is my first TT so i'm not sure if there is a main electrical run way.

The back of the Fridge is the best spot assuming your converter is below.
Second in the bathroom wall are plumbing stacks lots of space beside it. you might have to remove part of the underbelly to fish them to converter/power panel area.
Good luck!

I heard of some using the fridge vent stack to route the wiring down without having to go thru or down the side.

is there any space between the walls? or are the walls just a sheet of material? I was really hoping to mount this on the opposite side of the fridge.

also I have the cursed 29n so there's about 8 inches of clearance below it how would I go about jacking it up to work under if I have to?

thanks guys.

The outside walls are solid so they are out for wiring. Where is your power converter and electrical panel in the 29N? Upside of your Fridge is the bathroom walls, you have to remove a panel to bring the wires down.
If you want to work under the Jay Feather you have to move it on 3 or 4 boards, then use your Tongue Jack to move the TT up or down. If you have to use more blocking do so. Just work safe. I insulated the whole underbelly and had to remove the underbelly sheet. First back of the axles and then front of the axles. Where there is a will there's a way.

It took a little work but I ran my wires down the inside of the wall that has the slideout switch in it. Then ran the wires down and under the RV to the charge controller in the front storage bay and back to the batteries on the tongue. IF I was doing it all over again I would run the wires down through the front closet to the charge controller having the readouts mounted on the closet wall. Note where I had the wires come out the bottom of the floor I sealed the hole with lots of spray foam insulation then covered it with a can of truck bed coating..
