Running TV cable to Bedroom

Running TV cable to Bedroom from living room any ideas how to do that?

My cable hookup is at the rear of my 38' 5er.

I have a Jayco 341 RLQS http://www.rvguide.com/specs/jayco/f.../341-rlqs.html

The bedroom is in the front.

Thanks in advance

Isn't the cable already run into the bedroom? Our 24 FBS has another spot for a TV and cable already there.

I too am surprised you don't already have a RG cable to the bed room. Mine had a fold down shelf and a TV connections in the wall next to it.

In my fifth wheel I ran RG and Video cables down the air conditioner ducts. Go pull down each of the ceiling registers and route the cables from one to the next until you get to the bedroom. Then you will have to find a easy way in and out of the duct. Ceiling cabinets on the living room end is where we started and the ceiling cabinets above the bed head board was the best way out for us. No cables visible anywhere...

Seal up any holes you made with spray in Insulation.

Worked good for us for running cables. being a Ham Radio guy I ran alot of RG cables from one end of the trailer to the other using the A/C ducts...

We had a 2008 313 rks and it was prewired to the bedroom. I'd be pulling the cover plate off in the living room and bedroom to see if the 2nd wire is disconnected.

Some RV bedroom areas have a label on the wall showing you where to add a TV mount.



If you have one of these labels in your bedroom chances are you also will have a pre-wired antenna panel that will look something like this. maybe installed inside a cabinet.. Could also just be a type F panel...

Usually you will have a double outlet somewhere close to your main TV. This is where you connect for satellite/cable hookup. Depending on how you connect you can also run your satellite/cable feed back to your bedroom tv. Once you figure it out, it is pretty simple. Would have been a lot simpler to just put a second cable input outside the bedroom as far as I'm concerned. I have actually done that on several of my units.
