Power for six way seats

So I just finished putting new pedestals, power bases and seats in our 2017 Vegas 24.1. Now I need to pull a positive power wire to each base. According to the power base manufacturer this line should have a 30amp fuse. Can anyone suggest the best place to find this power source and routing to get it to each seat base? Under the drivers seat, there is a cargo bay with many wiring points on the wall. I was thinking of tapping in at that point and drilling through the floor under each seat....suggestions?

Directly off the batteries...you should be able to route it easily up to an under the seat area. Try to find an existing hole nearby and use it vs. drilling a new hole. Most metals today are treated/coated and drilling will expose the inner metal to corrosion.

What Gritz said.

Here's what i would do (you lucky, lucky guy!)...
Easiest to run a pos & neg off the House battery
Put in-line fuse on the positive lead
Then split to both storage boxes using the existing entry point for the storage box light
Use zip ties along the way
Then re-seal entry holes with silicone sealant
Go up thru the floor
Use a minimum #12 stranded wire & use a crimper tool to properly fasten connectors to Batteries

Then the magic happens!

Keep us posted and send us photos.

Thanks to you both for the advice...I literally stopped my project to try and come up with a clean functional plan for the power. May should have figured this out first, but y'all know how it goes when you get new stuff for the RV...gotta get it installed! Right now everything is wired to a jumper box sitting in the floor between the seats...works great! LOL
Thank goodness our big adventure doesn't start for another couple of weeks!

What about using wire molding to run the wire from the chair base over to the wall and then up to the dash? It might not be the most elegant solution, but it would be easier.

Iíve used something like this at the house to run wire from a switched outlet up to the ceiling for lights: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002DO172Q..._uS45CbK4ZG9Z9
