In our '09 FB the bulkhead the television is mounted on, the wall against the shower, comes off with 5 simple wood screws. It is a very simple removal.

One could then route a cable under the shower, by the water pump under the main wardrobe, under the refer and sofa to the rear of the trailer.

The tv cable is most certainly anchored and will not pull.

Just a little time with a flash light and crawling around will reveal how simply the interior is installed and can be worked around.

But I have to wonder WHY do you need HDMI? With TVs being on the small size In a trailer and with HD quality resolution not mattering much on TVs much under 30 inches, the advantage of having an HD signal is probably negated by the effort and cost required to get it there.
We want to run an HDMI cable from our Dish Network receiver under our dinette back to our bedroom TV as this would be the most effective to accomplish this without penetrating the outer skin.

Please do not misunderstand: I don't mean to prevent you from installing an HD capable cable if that is what you want.

I think you should be able to accomplish this using the existing RG-6 coax i the trailer as long as you don't need HD for that TV. Depending on your receiver, you should have a RF out with a threaded barrel connector. Plug that in the TO TV side of the cable outlet under the dinette and it should sent the RF signal to both TVs.

Thought about this but that would restrict use of cable TV if we use the existing cable for Dish Network. We are currently staying in an RV resort with excellent cable that my wife watches in the bedroom while I watch Dish in our lounge. By running an HMI cable we can plug into our bedroom flatscreen and have the option for both.

Simple Solution

Those of you who said route the HDMI Cable under the shower, wardrobe, and refrigerator had the best solution. The coax is definitely anchored in several places.

I removed the heater vent in the bedroom, which is right under the television. I used my drill to cut a notch for the cable in the bottom of the heater vent opening. Then, I routed the cable from there, behind/under the shower, under the wardrobe area (where the water pump is located), under the refrigerator using the opening behind the small cabinet, and finally up through the opening through the refrigerator wall where the main television is mounted. It was a pretty easy job except for having to crawl around on my belly using a coat hanger to reach the cable in tight places. The result is a great HD picture in my bedroom which mirrors the living room television. The HDMI splitter was inexpensive (<$30 from monoprice.com). So far, everything works great.

HDMI Splitter

I actually paid $34 for the HDMI splitter. Here's a pic.

Nice work.

These trailers are not rocket science, one just has to take a minute and look around.


Happy travels,

JD

Can you watch separate programs from the same Direct TV box by using the HDMI splitter? That would be cool!
