Backup Camera

I have a 2 camera wired system I need to finish the installation. I have a 2016 MS 38PS3 with generator and a set of batteries stored in each front corner.

I would like any suggestions on getting cable from the hitch to top rear. The difficult area appears to be the 4 feet from the hitch box to basement area. Pushing a fish tape from the hitch, I find a barrier at about 3 feet. I don't have any idea (or picture) what may obstructing me. I'm really hesitant using an existing wire as a pull rope. Will I need to cut into the closet floor? Suggestions?

The second camera is intended to mounted approximately 15 feet back from the hitch on the door side to aid in the blind side backing. That is the easy one as it would be mounted on the W/D wall, which is not on a slide out.

Probably running into steel structure. Not that the picture will be exact, go to the DRV website and look under DRV Advantages link. You’ll get an idea what you’re fighting.

I'm quite sure it is a structure piece but any idea how the wiring gets through the structures? I have a partial frame picture showing the side and some of the top frame structure. This trends to make me believe the wires do not have a a hole through the structure but sandwiched between the bottom of the structure and the outer skin.

Took a bit of time but I eventually got a fish from the pinbox diagonally towards the hydraulic compartment.

Did this to add a hardwired Ford trailer camera

Thanks for giving the location of the target bullseye.
Yes it took awhile,twisting and pushing but I have now pulled two ropes back. Next task is getting a pull rope between the basement and into ceiling trim above the door.
