HI tbonz and Aaron ( I know you'll see this to ) I got our 2nd ac installed over bedroom. Nerve racking because was in dark about how to run power to ac but good news you can run threw roof come down behind tv then on down behind droors . Pop out on top of water tank then go into large storage bend on side of Moho then out water drain hole. Then come out of the cap that is made to crank spare tire down with. But backing up to beginning. I went with dometic 13,500 btu low pro penguin II it matchies original ac. And ordered inside venting separate of course. Then a roll of eturnabond roofing tape. ( a must do not start with out it) 4" X 10' is perfect. I started on inside with vent pretty straight forward don't forget to pull screw out of crank handle then undo wires. Out it comes. Went up to roof. Was able to take out screws without scraping caulk of ( 104 temp outside so soft ) after all screws out took putty knife and cut vent loose from caulk. Vent came off no prob. Then very carefully scrape as much putty off roof as u can. ( don't tear roof but that is where eturnabond tape come in ) then laid down eturnabond tape around vent opening on roof , now u can see that front of vent cut out is somewhat open. There is a tunnel in styrofoam going to the right ( bedroom tv side ) good new. So I ran my electric cord threw tunnel and pulled back out for a measurement and I believe it goes all the way to wall. It seems straight so I held my breath and took hole saw and drilled 1 1/2 inch hole in roof behind tv And hit tunnel dead on. So for me that was the worst part. I drilled closer to tv staying away from the wall then drilled another hole behind tv working cord behind droors then pulled middle black pannel at bottom being able to see water tank drilled another hole missing tank then another hole into side storage Ben then noticed water drain hole in bottom of Ben I was home free. I went to lowes bought 2 heavy 15 amp 25' extension cords. Took one cut off end and ran it backwards back up to ac. Starting in the acces entry for the spare tire crank going up threw Ben drain and back up threw the holes I drilled. It worked out great. So now when using ac. I just open flap for spare tire crank pull out plug couple inches and use other drop cord I purchased to plug into power plug . It took me all day but it was 106 outside but the hardest part was getting ac on roof. Hope this helps I ran cord best I could to keep hidden. Might be other routs but found this way worked for me.
