You may want to consider going down through the floor, under the coach and back up. You may also be able to use one of the ceiling seams but I think that may be more problematic. Maybe someone else will have a better suggestion.

There is a channel with wires going from CS to SS that you can snake the antenna cable thru. Assuming that the dinette is curb side and the closet is there as well. I used an electrical type snake to do mine. Remove the hatch cover below the closet to access and feel around the other end winds up below the reefer access hatch SS.

This is good useful information, I found the channel under some installation right were you said it would be. I have a snake to the other side now I can put in the tv coax and add a speaker for that side and pull a string that I will leave for future projects. I hope you can use that tv mount I came up with.
Thanks again

Do you have pictures? This is where we thought we would like to put our TV, but, like you, were unsure of how to get the wiring figured out, so went to plan B of putting an LCD where the old CRT is.

How big a TV were you able to put there?

We have a Landyacht 30, 1997.

We have a Landyacht 30, 1997.

I bought a 22 inch LED I could have bought a 24 inch I think it would work without moving anything like the thermostat or outlet.
I wanted a 12 volt because I only want to crank up the antenna and reach for the remote. This one has a cd built in ,Click image for larger version

ID:	212022can be a
computer monitor , USB and other features. The mount I came up with holds the TV only 3/8 to 1/2 inch from the wall good in that location but it still slides out to make connections or for better viewing. Yes this is a better location but now I have a large hole in
the dash, any help with what I might do with it would be appreciated.

The parts to install the tv this way are at Amazon, look up Accuride 3832c or equal.

Looks great - just what we were thinking of! But we just picked up a 110v unit, never thought of 12v, good idea, and nice with built in CD player.
As far as the hole in the dash goes, I have see pictures where doors to match the rest of the cabinetry have been put on to make a useable storage area.

AS 2004 or 5 models have tv where you mounted and a cabinet in place of tv in dash.

If you decide to use the drawer slide mount, I used a thin metal plate over the mounting holes on the tv for a little added strength.
I think if makes the two slides act more like one and that makes it all stronger. See the plate in the picture.

Here's what I did when I removed the TV in the dash on my 92 LY:





I made the cabinet and had the door custom made for around $35. All solid oak and very functional.

Very nice! That's what we are planning to do, now that we have the TV wall-mounted (copy of Trident's installation).

TV mounted!

Well we returned the original TV we bought to replace the original front dash TV, and bought a larger (24" with DVD) one and mounted it to the wall behind the dinette. It involved raising the thermostat (fortunately there was enough extra wire from the original installation).
We still haven't 'snaked' the antenna wire - found the channel running under the floor from the closet to the fridge, but aren't sure how to get from there to where the booster is (and then to figure out which piece of coax it is…..)
There is coax attached to the booster, but also 4 other coax wires behind the fabric on the end of the cabinets by the drivers seat.
Is there a channel somewhere?
Any help on this, Trident?
At any rate we can now watch a DVD!
