moving batteries and installing Victron inverter-charger under front bed

Hi all,

I just purchased a used 2016 23FB international and going to add 4 battleborn batteries under front bed along with a 3k victron inverter-charger. I understand how to wire based on lots of research and youtube videos, but can't seem to figure out how to get the shorepower wiring from the old converter location to the new inverter-charger under bed, and the other wiring that needs to run back to the AC-DC panel in kitchen from new inverter-charger.

I'm guessing I will need to go under the coach to run wires since i'm not taking floor out.

Has anyone done this and if, so any pics, suggestions ...

THanks

My 50amp AC wires are run inside the trailer with some custom flashing to cover it up along the floor / bedroom wall.

I am trying to do the same on my 23 FBQ and trying to figure out how to link the left with the right set of wires in the battery box. (R/B)

What did you end up doing?

I recently finished a lithium upgrade with Multiplus II. I put all equipment in front compartment with two 270 Battleborn batteries under the front bed. I installed AC breaker box in the front compartment with 3 cables under belly pan to kitchen breaker box.

I put 2 AC units and hot water heater on AC out 2 from Multiplus which is only live when on shore power. All other AC circuits ran off inverter which is AC out 1. The third cable was to run shore power up to the new AC breaker box in front compartment.

Details are here: https://www.airforums.com/forums/f44...ud-231684.html
