Solera Wiring Question

I have a 2012 Model 24S and have a question on wiring in a new inverter for the TV outlet above the entry door.

I have identified the items on the 15 amp non-gfci circuit that feeds this outlet:

Bedroom TV outlet
Entry door TV outlet

Can anyone tell me how the wire is routed before I tear everything apart trying to find it?

I would like to separate the converter and the refrigerator with a new feed from the existing breaker, then split off the outlets with a transfer switch to the inverter.

I am hoping that the routing goes from the panel to an outlet that the converter and refrigerator are both plugged into (somewhere near the water pump?), and then to the TV outlets.

Is this correct or am I way off base, or should I just start disassembling?

Nats, Papap sent me a wiring diagram for the 2012 S because the dealer had bo booed on my inverter install. Look up his post, I'm sure he would help you out.

WhiteSolera, thanks, I did get the diagram from Papap (Thanks again Papap!) but mine does not match the drawing.

For example, the drawing shows the receptacle over the bed on the Receptacle circuit, mine is on the GFI circuit.

I'll track it down and post my results on this forum for future reference.

For future reference if anyone else attempts this, tore everything apart today and this is what I found.

At least on my 2012, Wire routes from panel to the bedroom TV outlet, then to the converter outlet, then the refrigerator outlet, and then to the TV outlet above the entry door.

There is a second set of 110v wires connected to the TV outlet above the entry that I have no idea where they route to. Maybe some future roof connection?

I was able to separate the entry door TV wiring at the refrigerator outlet and re-feed from a new Xantrex transfer switch.

I also drilled a new hole in the floor below the sink and ran my inverter ground wire to a frame ground that already had a couple of other grounds attached.

Tomorrow I'll finish the transfer switch, can't finish the 12v power wiring because I'm waiting for a couple of wire lugs. Will be pretty easy to attach the 12V positive to the downstream side of the battery disconnect, with an inline fuse of course.
