RV Water Filter install advice

I am in the process of "installing" the three stage RV Water Filter bracket with the three filters in my 2007 3400RL. Logical place for me would be just inside the "wall" between my basement and convenience center on the streetside. I need advice on installing it so I can still change the filter canisters as needed and also running hoses from it to the convenience center. My intent is to plumb the outflow directly in to the rig and plumb the input in to the convenience center so that all I have to do when we hook up is to use a quick disconnect to the inflow side. That will require drilling two holes from the basement in to the convenience center. Any advice and/or pics would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

On my 3800, I drilled just one hole to route the hoses through the convenience center wall, but could have done two smaller ones. I have my large whole house filters sitting in a plastic tub to catch errant leaks when they occur and also have my double size water softener in the pass thru as well. I use additional 3 foot water hoses inside the pass thru to allow for regenerating my water softener and give me enough hose length so that I can take all out and sit on the ground when I want to regen.

Ours hangs on the frame on the outside when in use then inside for traveling. One short hose from the regulator to the city water connection, one hose from city tap to the filter inlet. I went ahead and put on a hose bib for connecting the black tank flush when needed and for hand washing after handling sewer line.
