I've been out in the van trying to figure out a good location to mount one of the wire entry boxes on the roof for the solar panel wires to come through and also trying to figure out how to mount one so that it fits the ribs on top.

Does anyone have a good spot that they've used? I've thought about all the way to the back where it's flat but my charge controller will be on the drivers side wall about in the middle of the van.

I mounted a box centered over the first rib back from the cab just behind the raised moon roof location. I used a 1/2” npt waterproof gromet with a threaded fitting. Only two wires needed to come in as the MC4 combiners got me down to that. The wires were then run along the rib to my Converter box in a high cabinet behind the driver. I used a hole saw to enlarge one of the rib’s holes to get the nut up into the rib and to tighten it with my Leatherman of course.

Not much for pictures that day sorry.
