Fishing wire using existing wiring.

I have a 2014 30í flying cloud, my wife and I removed the dinet which revealed a subwoofer which was also removed. Instead of cutting and capping the wires I would like to fish an Ethernet cable to where the radio head is. Iím assuming that is where the other end terminates. Has anyone done this? I know the wires by the radio head are bundled and tapped together, Iím hoping the two Iím wanting to utilize have not been bundled with anything else.

The RCA wire gives me quite a bit of resistance, the power cable gives me a bit of give. I would like to be able to run an Ethernet for networking and making it as clean as possible.

TIA

This is pure speculation, but I have tried it with other wires without success. Looking at the wiring diagrams, it appears that the wiring is made as cable subassemblies that connect to each other with in-line connectors. As such the cable bundles are probably secured with tie-wraps and may be secured to frame members.

most cables are bundled in assemblies. they are often tied with others to stop vibrations and wires hitting the metals.

yes, its hard to pull cables as the insulation is in the way and often glued on one side

Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I knew it was a long shot but figured I would give it a shot.

Fishing wire using existing wiring.

That approach wonít work..... but!.....

Fish the wire in the metal conduit under the dinette... through the under couch storage area.... back around the couch and then up out the back of the couch on the entry door side of the coach, behind the curtain, up the side of the pano window... and you can squeeze it into the overhead bin through the gap between the overhead bin and the interior skin. Remove the speaker, fish around and you can fish it through into the main overhead bin.

Or... use a 1GB Wireless router

I had thought of investing in one of the small articulating head cameras with about 100’ of semi ridged wire to guide the wire through, however, it is a bit out of my price range. I have a gigabit router, download is fast, but the upload is a killer. Was planning on using this with a personal server to do some computing or virtual machine use. Hardwire is faster and more reliable. Guess it’s back to the drawing board.
