Adding wiring to side-out in 24.1
I am in the process of making upgrades in anticipation of this traveling season. One of the things I am doing is to replace the sofa in my 2015 Axis 24.1 with a set of recliners from Rec Pro. That's pretty well documented in the forums here and I do not anticipate any problems.
BUT I am also going to update the inadequate Jensen stereo with a much better system. I'll be installing a Pioneer MVH-2300NEX head unit, a Rockford Phosgate amplifier, 6x9" speakers in the front cabin area, 6.5 Phosgate speakers in the bedroom and, finally, a 10" self powered JL Audio subwoofer. I would like to hide the subwoofer and the amplifier behind the recliners, where the tabletops and legs are stored. Those items will move up to the overhead bed area.
I am wondering about the wiring issue of locating something in the slide out. I know I will need additional length in the wires to accommodate the in and out movement of the slider, but how should I route them in order to keep the wires from being caught in the mechanism or being exposed in the cabin? I've found where the factory wires come into the slide out: through the armrest that is next to the bathroom. I just can't tell if there is something in there that keeps a light tension on the wires to keep them from pinching during extension/retraction of the slide out.
I will need to run speaker wires x 4, 3 RCA audio pair cables, 8 gauge power and ground cables, 4 gauge power & ground cables and a small gauge (18 ga.) remote signal wire. It's a lot of wiring, but it will be worth it to be able to actually hear my music over the road noise and to have high quality music to listen to in our campsite when relaxing or reading.
I appreciate any and all help on this perplexing issue.
