Rooftop Solar wire routing

Has FR prewired for solar on any of it's units or is through the Ref. vent the best option?

I don't know about Forest River but I used the skylight in the bathroom as reference to get behind the shower wall. The plumbing wall goes straight to the basement.

I think the most important to me was taking the shortest possible route from my panels to the controller/battery bank. I ended up just drilling though and passing the wiring down through the hollow sections of the entertainment center. Of course that is where I placed my conduit and c-box so it all worked out well.

If the reefer vent is the most convenient and en route to your controller then I would say go for it. Just ensure the wiring is properly protected on the way down.
