Adding solar to roof of 255RKS 5th wheel

I also posted this in the rv mods forum.

I want to add solar to my 2019 Puma 255RKS, so I sent a message from the Palomino website asking where to drill through the roof to run the wires. This is the response I got:

Hello Sir,
The roof has many wires running thru it .Our newer units are wired with solar ports to add the panels. I canít advise on adding one to the roof.

It was from the parts and shipping manager. Probably not the best person to answer the question ... I wonder why she didnít pass it on to someone with knowledge of the subject.

I have two questions:

1) Does anyone know how I can get a wiring diagram for my rig?

2) Would it be feasible to run the wires down the outside, perhaps enclosed in PVC, to get it to the battery compartment.

I would appreciate any ideas or help you might have.
