XM Antenna installation

I'm installing the XM antenna in our Lera and looking for advice on how some of you guys routed the antenna wire. I plan on placing the antenna itself in or close to the celling fan up front. Of course I want it to look good and not be able to see the wire running down the side of the wall.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Why not on the dash?

On my 24R I ran it behind the dash to the passenger side door and then tucked it behind the rubber trim around the door frame and rear pillar. Loosed one screw to work it behind trim around the upper mattress cutout area. Then ran it under the mattress to the front of the cap. I lose the signal sometimes when headed north. I think that is mostly because of all the stuff piled up there. The cable can't be seen.

With a class C you will get poor reception due to the overhanging bunks above.

I ran it to the fan and zip tied it to a cross brace above the fan from the roof. Looks good and works Great!

I had a professional install it on a class c and he ran it under the passenger door step molding behind the dining table along the floor and to the side door molding which he removed and ran it up under the molding and then somehow in the wall and out the top where the awning attaches and then used some kind of black caulking to adhere it to the top. Works great but he said it was a *****
