DC power to rear of trailer for Maceator pump

I have a 2016 Whitehawk 28DSBH Summit pkg and need 12 amps of 12vdc power near the black tank drain. I'm looking to power a portable maceator pump. I cannot find any dc power points in the manual or visually in the trailer. Do any of you know where there may be one? And if not. A pathway to run conductors from the battery in front to the rear, Preferably interior run. FYI, The Summit pkg has an insulated chassis.

I pulled my fuse panel, and tied into an unused fuse. Then I followed the routing of other wires to get 12 power where I wanted it. Hardest part might be getting a round a shower if you need to. Took me about an hour to get my wire pulled through that area. Had to get creative with two wire dishes.

All your power runs through and under all your cabinets. Start snooping and you'll find a route.

I am about to do the same with my trailer this summer. nothing for you to tie into. you need a separate circuit. either from the fuse box or directly from the battery. I'm going to attach PVC conduit under the trailer using toggle bolts to the coraplast or what ever it is called. Then a 12ga extension cord from HF. Cheaper. Just don't uses one of the wires. Then 12 ga wire with an inline 20 amp fuse at the battery. Manufacturer sent mine with a cig lighter fused plug on the pump! LOL Who has a Cig lighter plug on the outside of an RV near the tank valves? LOL

Thank you! How they routed the cables through the cabs is exactly what I needed.

I hadn't considered conduit which is very weird seeing as I work with it frequently. Thanks for getting my brain going again.
