Im interested in finding out where you installed your inverter/charger.Any pics would be very appreciated!.
Sure! I actually installed mine in the underbed storage area, but that's also where I have my house batteries (AGM's) and solar controller. I wanted to get the battery weight off the hitch, keep my power center as close together as possible, and it was a snap to run the solar lines down through the entertainment centers unused spaces.
I don't think the 1/0 is overkill at all! I actually used 2/0 in my install. I'll post a picture, but probably... in your situation.. I would install your Sunforce upside down in the center of the pass through. I would center it front to back as well to get maximum ventilation and add a layer of sound deadening material (from the local car audio place they have aluminum backed.. aka heat resistant vibration matting) between the inverter and the mounting surface. The reason being... it's basically almost right under your head.. so even the slight vibration and sound from the fan might get annoying at night. Then I would run your 1/0 down the front wall of the pass through.. thru the flooring and into the underbelly. You'll need to drop the underbelly anyway to run your 110v line from the inverter to your power distribution panel. There is no "nice" way to get across from the ent. center to the kitchen cabinets but the underbelly, so I would just feed the 110v line down the same hole as your 1/0 and over to the DP.
As added protection for the wiring running down the inside wall of the pass through, I would probably cut some PVC in half to act as a protective channel. You MIGHT be able to just put your wiring hole at the top front of the pass through and drop it down into the underbelly directly, but I don't really recall what it look like up in there. Ie., if it was "open" or another access hole would need to be drilled.
From there you can just enlarge the existing pigtail hole to run your wiring out to your batteries. You might want to add some of that accordion style wiring protector.. and be sure to re-seal the exterior hole.
Hope it helps. Ohh... the fuse can be mounted just inside the pigtail hole next to the 40amp fuse already there. It would be much more protected once the underbelly goes back up.
