1st tavel trailer

My wife and I just bought the White Hawk 28DSBH 2 weeks ago, This is our very first travel trailer of our own, we have used my father in laws outback so time to get our own.

Anyways, We took it out last weekend and had a fantasic time, there is a tv in the living room and I am able to hook up my satellite from the Winegard GM-1518 carryout dish outside to the cable port on the rear outside of the trailer and connect the receiver to the port by the tv, that works great.

now there is a spot in the bedroom with a sticker on the wall for a tv, I would like to put a tv there as well another sat. receiver so the kids can watch their stuff and wife and I can watch ours.

So my question is how would I run another coax cable from the back of the trailer to the front of the trailer where the bedroom is?

Glad to see another Whitehawk owner on here. I have the same model and we love ours.

With regard to the cable routing it sound like you will need to go under the unit. Or alternatively you could run a coax down the wall and then into the storage under the bed. From there you could run the cable out to either side and install a bulkhead coax connector.
Just a idea. Good luck with you mod and your trailer.

I though of running it down the wall but I would rather have a clean look to it. I took a close look at the trailer tonight and I can see where the other coax cable comes into the back storage and over to the wall between the bunk beds and bathroom then it goes up the wall to the ceiling.

So I was able to get it that farthen tried to fish the ceiling but keep hitting a something, so I took the covers off the air duct and tried fishing there but hitting somethign different. So I thought I could take the ceiling speaker out and disconnect the wires from the speakers then pull the wire back to the tv unit, however I am not able to remove the speakers, any ideas on that.

Or is there another easier way to fish in the ceiling, removing ceiling or a trick ?

I just picked up my 28DSBH. I have the tv mount sticker and a coax output and outlet up above it. This coax is tied in like the one for the main tv. Do you not have that?

Actually I looked and mine also has this coax connector in the bedroom.
