Re: route from engine bay to inside of van

My last van i put a leisure battery in and had the same problem. I put the cable through the inner wing on the N/S. This ran from cab to passengers door and in the wing from the open door then up to the scuttle drain pipe what i put a little nick in to get cable through to battery but......... If you have a bug amp in the back you could just drop wire from battery down under the van and up through a rear floor grommet.

Yes but i think i had a rubber grommet further up i used. As i say it was my last van so cant go look for sure. As for other end this is the only picture i have what shows the wire route

Yes but that wire as said was for a split charger so had thick coating so was not worried about water. You could drill a hole into the side if you want but use an open rubber grommet so to protect the wire from chaffing. Someone said there was a way through the bulkhead up behind the battery but i could never find that route.
