Satellite in 2012 25fb wiring headaches!

Installed Directv with a Winegard Carryout G2 portable dish in my 2012. Works fine. My question is about wiring runs and the how Airstream decided where to put the hookups, which obviously leaves alot to be desired.

The Winegard is hooked to the Sat/Cable outside outlet. It also needs 12dc power, which I do not have on the outside. So I can either run it in through a window, or (as I've chosen) plug it into my tow vehicle. Then the Sat cable inside isn't run up into the above dinette cabinet where all the gear resides, it's down near the floor under the table. So I have drill a hole in the back near the rear window, and run an ugly cable down to the hookup.

Any suggestions for a cleaner hookup? What year did AS finally start running the coax cable up into the cabinet?

I am looking for a Sat for our 2015, had direct through our daughters service, but she dropped it. We had a 2012 25' and had an electrical plug on the outside of the trailer near the outside door? Not sure why you do not. You can put one in if you want or have a dealer install a ground fault plug outside.

Thanks for your reply. I have an outlet on the outside, but it's not a cigarette type dc which is what the dish needs
