Thanks for all the help so far. I was able to locate some wires. Can someone tell me what goes where?

1) Do the red/black wires under the front seat on the passenger side to straight to the battery?

2) Where do the wires behind the control panel go?

3) And the wires behind the front light, do they go through a hole I would drill in the roof straight to the solar panels.

Also, am I missing some wires? I was under the impression that there would be some green/yellow wires under the seat in the front. Thanks.

I my 2005 International 19...
1) Red & Black wires go from controller (under bench) to plus battery buss bar and ground (also under bench).
2) Only wire used behind kitchen wall control panel was cat5(blue) for remote monitor. I did not explore the other wires.
3) Where is that light fixture? Our AS (International) does not have a light fixture like that in the ceiling. But, I drilled the hole between the AC and front fan-vent on the front-side of the frame cross rib so I could reach it inside from the front fan-vent (after I removed the trim panel). In the roof picture I posted, the hole and combiner box is located under the front solar panel.

Hope this helps,
~ Ken

Additional pics...

2) Closet wiring - Note the "Solar Monitor" wire is flat beige, which came with the monitor. We did not use the blue Cat5 wire. The other wires are used for other functions/features and not used by the solar system.

3) Location of the ceiling penetration for the solar wires to the combiner box on the roof (under the front solar panel).

Got it. I see what must be the front fan to the left. So, yes those must be the yellow/green solar wires which will need to go through the roof to the solar panel(s). Without a light, our wires were hidden under the ceiling panels, which is why I needed to remove the fan-vent trim to access the wires.

Also, depending on the solar system you purchase, the type of controller will determine its location. Some controllers can be hidden under the bench and a separate remote monitor can be mounted anywhere that is convenient, which is the intent of the Airstream solar prewire setup. But some controllers include a nice built-in monitor display and, therefore, must be mounted somewhere on the wall rather than hidden under the bench, which requires additional heavy gauge wiring.
