Need Help Instaling Storage Slider

I own a 2013 365BHS and recently purchased a storage slider to help organize my under unit storage. The kit requires me to drill holes through the bottom of the storage compartment to fasten the slider rails and I need to make sure that I'm not drilling into any wiring or piping. The underside of the unit is factory sealed with a solid blask plastic type product to protect it from the elements and I was wondering how I go about knowing if I'm drilling is an area clear of wires or pipe.

The one installed in my last unit used self tapping screws that did not go any deeper than the wood floor thickness. No way you can do any damage with that method.

Need Help Instaling Storage Slider

You could make a opening in the bottom , enough to see what's going on down there. Buy Gorrilla tape and tape it back up. That's the way I would approach it. You could also back out the Tec screws on one side to pull down the bottom cover to have a look. I also like the idea that was mentioned above about sinking screws where the frame rails are.

I was wondering where you got your storage sliding tray. What size it is.
