FC27 FBQ wiring chase routing DC AC

My DC panel, inverter, battery cable entry is front curb side storage compartment. I need to get wires from that location back to the power panel curb side midship. I lose track after they go into or under the bed side cabinet night stand? how do they span the gap from that corner of the trailer to the bathroom, hot water tank and then onto the power panel? Anyone accessed this area or done a similar routing of wires?

I had the good fortune of seeing a 27’ globetrotter with its interior removed to install new flooring at JC. I took a few pictures which may be helpful. It sure looks to me that many wires run through the walls.

I could not figure out how to access the area next to my 27' FBQ's bed, where all the wires go, when I installed my solar. I'm not sure how to run a wire from the front compartment through the Airstream either, so hopefully someone can provide the answer.

All I can tell you about is by FBQ 25, which may or may not be similar to the 25. I had to completely remove the bed(plywood and hardware), then remove some additional plywood dividers under the bed to access the areas necessary to rewire mine. I added solar, lithium, charger/inverter and all of the necessary stuff to go with it.

I found access was much easier on my 25FBQ than on my 27FBQ. On the 25FBQ, you can run wires from under the bed, front compartment, water heater compartment, bathroom vanity, galley then through the floor over to the refrigerator compartment and couch. Every compartment connected for running wires without being visible. The converter was right there under the bed close to the batteries. The store-switch relay was visible - I haven't even found that relay yet on my 27'. I do miss the easy access from my 25FBQ. I hope someone can tell us how achieve this sort of access on a 27'.

On my flying cloud it is mounted to the rear of the power (circuit breaker) panel, with the usual AS 10-15' extra cable coiled up on top of the converter, But as I type this I thought I remember you replacing/upgrading your converter??


I also stumbled across a thread fishing wires

Lew posted a picture of a wire chase cover #5 which if I can get my wires from the power panel past the hot water heater and forward under the bathroom lower cabinets that will be the route (pun) i will go. I'll call in a favor at my local shop and have them bend me up a piece to cover the wires. Thanks Lew for the idea and airmiles for the pictures.

Cool! Where does it go on each end? I haven't seen any access point under the bed. I would expect that it goes to the under-floor access by the refrigerator and converter. Please tell us more!

Just saw this post. I think cptdzl is right that some sort of cable concealer would be required to route wire through the bedroom on a 27' Queen like Lewster's pictures here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f37/...ml#post1774965 . Here is one example of a grey cable concealer kit from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VMRJ3F2..._t1_B07C5DQ82D There are also larger sizes in grey on Amazon that may be needed for thick duplex solar cables.
