Where to install surge protector 2014 solera

I recently purchased a 2014 24r solera and am trying to find out where to install an inline Progressive surge protector. I know it should go before the automatic transfer switch but the space is so crowded I cannot fit it in. Does anyone know where the cable is run from the outside plug-in to the ATS? Any suggestions on where to install.

Why should it be before the ATS? I put mine under the kitchen area right behind the ele dust panel. In line with the 30 amp power coming into the panel.

Thanks for responding. My initial thought was to put it in line with the 30 amp power coming into the panel but in talking with the manufacturer they stated that it should be before the ATS to protect it. The problem I am having is regarding the space available where the ATS is located.

I have the W layout and found a perfect place right where the wire enters the rv. There is a box that contains the water filter and has a access panel. It is referred to as a "nightstand." On yours check and see where it enters and follow its path as best you can. I also wanted to install as close to the main plug as possible.

I have the same model and year you have. Any idea what path the external power line follows ? I was expecting to find a junction box somewhere, but didn't. Do you suppose it comes across the coach to the water-heater area under the closet, into the ATS, and then from there over to the kitchen under the stove where the distribution panel is ?
They certainly put things in 'random' places. For instance, the two slide-out electronic control boxes are behind the black door where the winterization line is. You have to stand on you head if you need to work on one of them. That is where I would put them - with water lines and valves.

Thanks !

I believe that the power does, indeed, go from the power inlet to a junction box under the closet...I think that panel comes off with four screws...
