Ignore my last post was wrong cable! pulled basement wall off and your cable runs under the floor and comes out at the fresh water tank fill hole in floor! This sucks as you will have to drop the coroplas underbelly to get at! Sorry it is not what you wanted to hear! Rimoskeeto! Another brilliant crossroads idea!

Rimoskeeto,

Are you saying the routing is from the inverter in the basement, thru the wall into the front compartment, then under the basement floor, and up thru the hole where the fresh water fill tube goes down to the tank? (And then makes its way to the inverter control panel in the kitchen?)

If this is correct, where exactly does it leave the front compartment?

That's possible, but it doesn't change anything. I would still need to find the connector that it came out of.

Mine comes through the wall then down to the lower right hand corner behind the batteries then into the hole with the rest of the wires under the coroplast,then comes up at the fresh water tank fill! Take the wall out tha has the trap door on it then you will see it!

Great! Thanks for the info.

I know the wire bundle you are talking about. I was rooting around in it where it goes thru the floor, but was unable to find the end of the cable. If I can pull it up thru the hole at the fresh water tank fill, then maybe I can route it across the inside of the basement ceiling and reconnect it to the other end (after pulling the other end back into the basement.)

Well, as expected, Crossroads didn't build two Rushmores the same way!

I looked thru the "trap door" and had a clear view of the hole that the fresh water fill tube goes thru. My ribbon cable was not routed that way.

I'll have to remove the wall to find it. Looks like a project for next season. Good thing is I have an RV refrigerator and don't really need the inverter. Didn't want no stinkin' residential refrigerator so I went with the (expensive) option for an RV fridge. (Just kidding about the residential fridge having an odor.) I have used the inverter on the road, but also have no hesitation to run the fridge on LP over the road.)

Thanks for your help.

Gossamar,

I'm still interested in how your cable is routed if you have the time to check yours out.

Okay...sorry for the delay...but my inverter cables all feed back into the front batter compartment..including the "phone cord" cable(invertor label states D.C. input, remote in a square box, flat cable) that appears to have rj45 connection jacks. just inside the battery compartment, there is a connector...from there the cable joins into a wire loom that disappears under the trailer. I have too much junk in the way currently to see if I can see it through the trap door. My build date was late July of 2014 at the Redwood Plant....frame is even stamped Redwood.

Gossamar,

Mine was built around the same time, also in the Redwood plant.

Question about the location of the wire loom where the cable exits the battery compartment: Is it in the far back, right corner of the compartment? (That's where I suspect mine exited the compartment.)

Thanks

Yes, the loom is in the right corner of the battery compartment....my connector does not look like the picture above...it is like an rj45 junction block...
