Electric wire routing question

I have an upcoming refrigerator installation. The PO did not have one so there is no wiring run for a frige. Naturally my house battery is on the driver's side under the gaucho and the fridge will be in a cabinet on the passenger side, hence a wiring challenge.

All of the house wiring posts I have seen so far were a part of major work where the cabinets and wall skins were removed. That is more than I am willing do for a simple frige install, at least at the moment. I have a penthouse so the ceiling is out. My layout is similar to RB32:



I do have a 30 amp feed to the passenger side that only feeds a 12V socket above the stove but it seems to require removing the wall skin and cabinets to repurpose it.

My current idea is to drill through the floor and run the wire in conduit. Am I missing a more elegant solution?

Re: Electric wire routing question

I fished wires over the 50 cabinet, and recently down to the solar control panel. Have taken the back PH trim apart. Go up, look for trim you can push wires past (around the top) and you may have to remove a few snaps and screws, but it's not that big of a deal. Get longer wires than you need at Napa (you can do by the foot off a spool there) and just go up, around one end or the other and down- no new holes, or few. There is plenty of space behind the walls to run wires.

Start with the fridge side or don't connect the power until you're finished. Better yet, start in the middle of one end or other of the PH trim and go both ways from there.

4 snaps, 4 screws, and a bolt for the rear, front has got to be similar:


One full panel pulls out from this and goes right back.

Re: Electric wire routing question

It turns out that my RB with manual penthouse is different at the back than your EB with electric penthouse and I don't have that space:



After some investigation I fished from the installation cabinet to the adjacent 12V socket. Not a dedicated circuit but I can live with that for now.
