Airstream Power Jack install on a '64 Overlander

We purchased an Airstream Power Jack from VTS not realizing that we needed to have power from the battery. We thought it would come through the 7 pin connection to the TV.
Soooo since the battery is in the back hatch. Does anyone have examples of how to run the electrical from the tongue to the back?
It doesn't seem reasonable to remove the belly pan for this purpose. We could attach a line outside the under belly though I hate to make any more screw or rivet holes than absolutely necessary.
Would you install a conduit or attach just the wire?
Thanks for any solutions in advance! :-)
Laura

You could power it off the 7 way from your TOW but then you would only have power if you are hitched up. Did you check to see if you can tap into that wiring on the trailer side. In my 1971 I found there was a 12v in the 7 way that was connected to my battery in the back hatch. That actually charges my trailer battery off the Tow vehicle.

Inside the 7 way wiring is a 'charge' line that goes thru a fuse and straight to the campers battery. Splice into that.
