Hiding Wiring in 30' Walls - 2004 Classic

Want to mount a Link 10 DC metering system in the street side of the upper cabinet in the front of our 2004 30'. The shunt will be under the sofa with the batteries. So I need to get wires from the upper cabinet to the sofa below (small multi-conductor I believe).

Has anyone had luck running wiring in the walls?

Any suggestions on how to minimize removing the wall covering?

Make that a Link 20 for dual batteries.

One could run it straight up the front wall, relying on the curtains to hide it. But I wouldn't.

Fishing wire through the walls is virtually impossible due to stringers, other wiring, fiberglass batts, and whatever else is in there.

I'd just go ahead and open up one side of a panel. It is not at all hard to drill out the rivets and replace them with new pop rivets. And you don't need the panel off, just loose enough to sneak a wire up.
