Routing power cable from battery to cabin
Anyone have any suggestions on this? I need to run a cable directly from van battery on my Ford 2001 directly to the passenger side. It's gonna be 6 gauge wire (very short piece of 4 gauge from terminal to fuse block, 60 amp fuse, then a few feet of 6 gauge to inverter on passenger side).
I'd prefer not to go through the doghouse. I looked at it, and it seemed to be problematic: there didn't seem to be good points to secure the cable on the way without getting close to stuff that would either heat up or move. I could go in near the steering column on the driver's side, where I've already routed wire for a relay for driving lights. But that means a longer run, and routing over the air filter, etc.
What looks good is going a short distance over the wall near the passenger side where the AM/FM antenna is; you can drop between the external body work and the internal metal in the engine compartment. Then behind the kick panel on the passenger's right. There's an unused rubber grommet I could possibly used (painted on so probably a pain to remove, but I might just punch through. This gets me to all the wire loom in that place, and then I'm home free (it's near what I guess is the fuel cutoff dingus).
Any other ideas? Suggestions?
