Bathroom Roof Vent

I am an RV noobie. Never actually pulled my 30' 2003 Classic SO RB, its been sitting in my backyard since it arrived. Not knowing anything about it, I am rennovating it. Trying to finish it so I can get it on the road.

Here is my question. I am installing a 1500W 7.6kWh solar system. Can I run wires into the bathroom roof vent into the closet where the equipment will be located. I have to stress I have no idea what I am doing but I am trying to avoid a roof penetration and having to snake wires through the frame.

There are a total of 6 wires, probably 14AWG. four for the two banks of panels and two for 12 volts to run the actuators/lights on the roof.

Alternatively, my plan B is to make a hole in the roof at the front using an entry gland, try to snake the wires inside the frame between the roof and ceiling/wall to get them under the lounge (couch) and put the equipment there. But from what I am reading it is difficult to run wires that way. What do you suggest?
