Default Solar wire q:

I have purchased panels and a charge controller. I got the wiring and get how to hook up. I realized an issue that Iíve not dealt with before. This is probably going to sound dumb, but Iíve only had truck campers before. How should I manage the wires so that the top moving up and down will not cause issues?
Thank you for any suggestions.

Hi Roni - If you look through my solar power thread:, you'll see how I did it.

Basically, I mimicked the way other wires are routed from the bottom half to the top that exists in the wiring bundle that all our trailers have. It would have been perfect if I had run the wires down that wire bundle, but I didn't wand to cut a new hole in the top over that wire bundle. Having the solar wires running down the wall next to the refrigerator has worked well for me though.
