Wiring solar into a Silverback

I have a 2016 Silverback that I am looking to add solar panels. Just curious if anyone had experience running the wiring down from the roof and has any recommendations.

On my 2014, I brought my wire down one of the gray tank vents. I drilled a hole sideways at the top and bottom, then ran the wire out and across the storage bay to the location near the batteries where I mounted the controller.

Another member here wrote about fishing his wire down beside the vent pipe, which I would have preferred. But my unit did not have the open vertical space beside the vent pipe that his does, so I had to drill.

Hope this helps.

I ran them beside the vent lines next to the cabinet in the hallway.
