Running wires from hitch to battery?

I would like to run a new charging circuit from the kingpin area to the battery compartment in my Eagle HT. I can see where the current wiring goes in to the area under the bed and comes out in the battery compartment but can't figure out how to access that area to run wires.

Has anyone done this successfully and can give tips on how to actual fish a wire through there?

Close to "MIssion Impossible" without removing the bottom skin. They usually have a junction box for the factory wiring near the king-pin where the pig-tail connects to the other wires.

You might run a piece of wire channel aka wire molding to the exposed frontal area. Then attach with zip ties to whatever you could find on the bottom of the RV. If you want to do a little more you can run the wire on the bottom inside some plastic tubing to protect it from some snags and rocks.

I used an existing wire as a fish. I attached several pull strings to it and pulled it that way. I now have a couple spare pull strings for future pulls.

Thanks. That was going to be my go to if no one had another suggestion. I'm running 6/2 boat cable so it's a pretty large cable to fish.
