Solar roof entry location View 24?

For those that have either factory prewiring or have added solar yourselves, what cable routing was used to bring the cables in?

My end state goal is a maximum of 25' to get from the roof to the passenger rear corner at the floor (under the bed on a corner bed).

I'm open to suggestions.

My factory solar was routed through Zamp solar dock, through a hole in the roof, directly into the same area as the Zamp controller. The longest run is probably four feet from an added on panel. My Zamp controller is mounted under the OnePlace panel. Mounting your panels close to the electrical panels makes the most sense. Using something like the Zamp port (which also incorporates a self-resetting breaker) makes sense as well.

Our 2017 had pre wiring done. Here is my journey.

Thanks guys,

No pre wire on this rig unfortunately. My plan is to mount my combiner box directly above the fridge vent space, drill straight down through the combiner, and get into the chase space next to the fridge. That and lots of sealant

There is a ton of wiring running up there. Take your time and scope it out!

Many run the wires down the fridge vent on the roof. I have also seen people run them down a plumbing vent stack in the closest location and bring it through a small hole in a cabinet or ceiling cavity over to the control atea.

On my 2005 Sightseer I ran the wires through the refrigerator vent, into the cabinet space below the fridge and through a low voltage Datacomm 50-3338-WH-KIT Easy Mount Cable Organizer Kit - White from Amazon and to the MPPT charge controller on the wall next to the entry door.
