It's a secret or maybe they don't have any! By the looks of some of the work that could be a possibility .

Bang, the cigar goes to Camper.

If they had drawing then there would be uniformity if how they build their product.

In the long run and short run getting a professional to do the work is well worth the money spent. Then if something goes wrong they are the ones to stand behind their work.

Sometimes it is best to let the people do work that knows what they are doing and we can do what we know. Compare the value of doing it or having someone else do it. Dutchman will not give up any drawings, I already tried this angle.

Good luck with THAT!

One of the reasons I do much of my own work. Nothing pisses me off more than to pay good money to have a "professional" do the work, then have to redo it or fight with them to make it right. FWIW I never take low bidder on any project.

Ain't that the truth. The number one reason I won't take my vehicles back the the dealer. If there is something that I have to farm out, I'll go to the small independent guys.

I suspect there are 2"x2" studs but what type of insulation is in there to deal with ?

I can run the wire on the outside of the wall but prefer it to look better than that if possible.

My wife wants to add a small cabinet and wants to brace it on the wall so I don't know if some kind of anchor would work or if I can brace it on the 2x2 studs......

Also, it would be helpful to have some type of pic or graphic that shows the trailer without the interior walls if anyone knows where one like that may be. It would be helpful even if it is not the exact model, it would at least give me an idea of what to expect.

Any help or advice is appreciated

Have you considered using "wire mold". I believe it is a product stick built houses use to hide additional wiring in a home without breaching a wall. Found in most big box building supply stores like lowes, MENARDS, Home Depot or hardware stores.

We had satellite radio and television installed in our Kodiak. The company that did it is an RV repair company. The installer told us that he had never seen such thick insulation in an RV before. He had a tough time pulling the wires through the thick stuff. Perhaps that is why the air conditioner will freeze you out of the trailer and the heater will roast you out. We had this done after the electrical problems started. So we know this installation has nothing to do with our rig constantly popping circuits.
