Original Airstream Combiner Box

Hello. Got a 2020 Airstream Bambi 22FB. Dealer has installed two solar panels and hooked them up using the original Airstream combiner box on the roof. Now, that trailer does not have a fridge vent which means I can’t use that to bring additional cabling in, like ones from a WiFi ranger for instance. My question is, could I use the original combiner box to bring those additional cables in? If so, any modification required. My trailer is in storage for the winter but I believe the combiner box sits atop the mechanical space in between the bathroom and the closet which means an additional cable could just be dropped in. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

If there is a decent roof penetration with access to a mechanical area then yes that would not be a problem.
Here’s a video me and my son shot doing that very thing. Now mine is not a factory combiner box but same concept.

Thanks. I had actually already watched your video. It’s very good and helpful. Just wondering now if I could use the OEM combiner box and which modifications if any would be required.
