That is similar to my Actiontec setup.

Also I added this to make my IR remotes RF : http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000C1...X8L&ref=plSrch

I have ran HDMI cable from the entertainment center to the bedroom and the basement of my 2013 390RB. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most difficult) I would give it an 8. To get to the basement I used the same floor penetration used for the plumbing in the half bath sink. I pushed that one through the expanding foam used to seal the hole. I then fished it over the top of the tanks into the basement near the curbside rear most main basement door. I'm using a ryd-mor articulated and sliding mount in that compartment. The bedroom was much more difficult. I had to fish the HDMI cable through the chases along the floor of the half bath and bedroom (underneath and beside the bed) on the street side. Once I got to the bathroom I removed the furnace vent in the base of the shower and fished the cable from the street side of the bathroom to the curbside. To get from the bath to the wardrobe slide I had to pop the covers off the flexing cable guide that moves out of the wall between the wardrobe slide and the bathroom. I then had to remove the staples that hold the carpet to the front of the wardrobe slide and then the 2 x 2 that is attached to the front edge of the floor of the slide. This allowed me to use the same penetration as the RCA cables thru the floor into the drawer area of the wardrobe. From there you have to fish up thru the wall of the wardrobe slide into the overhead cabinet. The bottom of the overhead cabinet has a false floor that provides a channel for routing the cables over to the TV.

I can provide pictures of some of this if you are seriously interested. Some of it is buttoned up and it won't be possible to provide pics. It took me several days of working at this to accomplish it. I use a matrix switch box to allow me to control the signal to all TVs and switch between satellite and blue ray DVD in the entertainment center.

That's about what I figured and ruled it out pretty early.
As I'm too old and fat to be doing that kind of stuff any more.

I said I was old, but that doesn't make it ok for you to call me fat. :-)

Getting old beats the alternative. Your certainly not fat. I'm not running any hdmi cables anytime soon myself.

I ran an HDMI cable to my outside TV on my 2014 390BH. Once I found the path to the entertainment center is was an easy fix. Cables from the outside TV run behind the kitchen cabinets then under the fridge into the basement where the run across to the entertainment system.
You need fish tape but doesn't have to be that long 25ft should be more than enough.
In the 390Bh the cable runs under the love seat into the back of the kitchen cabinet(you can see the run by removing the draw under the stove).
From the entry in the cabinet it runs under the single door cabinet to the left of the sink and then to the cabinet under the sink (remove the tray for your sink covers by taking out the 4 screws and you can see the line).
Next run the cable under the draws to the right of the sink (again remove the draw and its easy access) and then under the fridge (the access to under the fridge is in the back and is the hardest part to fish as its at an angle, but still pretty easy.
Remove the wood panel at the base of the fridge and you have easy access to cable. Once under the fridge you will see a large bundle of wires that are surrounded by spray foam, the fish tape or any rigid metal object will go right through the foam and you can then fish the cable down to the basement.
Now from the entertainment side, locate your bundle of wires that run from the panel to the basement and again push through the spray foam with your tape.
Go to the basement and push the cable up through the hole you created by the entertainment center and your home free.
I have mine currently set up so the two main cabin TV's and the outside TV are on one Direct Tv box, but could also just add a new box in the entertainment center for solo operation. If you have Direct Tv you can set your receiver and remote to RF and you'll be changing your new HD channels from the comfort of your lawn chair... now if there was just an RF remote for the beer in my fridge I would be all set!
