Converting Manual A/C to Thermostat

We have bought the appropriate single zone thermostat with control box and air distribution box (on interior), per Dometic, to convert our manual A/C to being thermostat controlled. We love our 2013 22' Sport, but the manual A/C is a pain in the rear. The thermostat will also control the heat strip and furnace. The thermostat and air distribution box will arrive Friday. If anyone else is interested in the parts to do this project, the thermostat and control box is part # 3313189.049 and the air distribution box is part # 3314850.000.

The only part we're worried about is feeding the wiring through the ceiling and down the wall to the current location of the furnace thermostat. Before we take on this project, anyone have any pointers? We are clueless are to what we'll find in the walls of the trailer. Will we be able to just feed a wire from A to B?

I don't think you'll be able to run inside the wall and ceiling all the way. See a similar issue I had here:

And here for actual repair and running of wiring:

Way too many ribs and bows to fish through. And all the existing harnesses are taped so pulling is probably impossible. Once you get over drilling into a new unit, it'll be fine. Just think it out and call Mothership for specific routings.
