Roof mounted solar cable to controller??

I want to mount 2 -100 watt panels on the roof of my new Forester. Many run the cable to the controller down thru the fridge roof vent. My Forester 2701DS will have the fridge on the opposite side from the house batteries where I am mounting my controller. Is the a tunnel like I have in my Winnebago to run cables and wiring from side to side, or am I going to have to drill thru the floor and and run it on the underside to the batteries?

Posts: 275 did you come up with 200 watts of solar power for your coach. I'm going to have the dealer install solar and I was wondering how many watts I need.
