All New Wiring

Has anybody used a product like this to install new wiring?

It seems that it would just make life so much easier to have access to everything should there ever be a problem or you want to add/remove wiring.

I have seen similar products used in structures as surface mounted conduit.
You would only have access to your wires IF it were surface mounted. Not sure what your plan is...

My cocern would be if the raceway could be bent into the radius needed to go around all the curves in an airstream.

Plan

My plan, if it will work, would be to surface mount the raceway along one side of the AS. I would not be using it except along the bottom of the walls and down the middle of ceiling.

I would cross over where the walls will be (completely stripped now) so conduit will be in wall until it gets to ceiling.

I would use their junction boxes to mount LED lights along the celing where the 12v runs.

The same would work with the 110 along the walls. Just put in a 'T' and come up a few inches.

Sitting in there looking at it all and thinking of where my walls will be, I am not seeing anyplace where beding will be necessary.

The PO really did a 'job' on the electrical. Rather than take down the inside walls which are in excellent shape, I thought I would give this raceway a try.

I would be putting in all new 120v and 12v. Everything from the original wiring would just get pushed back inside the walls (unless I can pull it out without damaging anything).

Just an idea...
