You could also go HDMI wireless. Ya, cost more but you don't have to tear up your trailer to get it working. Expect to pay around 190. for this. If you go this route don't go too cheap cause that is what you will get, a cheap not so solid system.

The reason I want to do this is I have a tailgater satellite dish and single receiver. I want to run split the signal through all TVs. I understand The same channel will display on all TVs but that's okay. Just looking for opinions.

Can you run it through the A/C ducts. I know I would if it was my coach.

I bought a long HDMI from Amazon and wired it under my trailer in 1/2" pvc conduit and drilled up through the floor where needed. This was cheap and easy. Just strap the conduit well.

oops. It might have been 3/4 pvc but no difference. I acutually ran coax and hdmi in the conduit so I could have both signals to a newly installed outdoor tv.

I did not know those existed! Very cool if they enable the same quality.

Re: HDMI Wiring

Hi all. I do AV systems for a University. The newer HDMI deep Color now has a limit of 30 feet and using pro cable made of 22gauge conductors. This cable is about the same size as a 16/3 power cord ! HDMI connectivity was never intended for long runs !
I agree that routing in PVC conduct under the trailer would be best !
We use a converter to 8G cable, which is a shielded cat.6. That's good for 330 feet. I'm sure reg cat. 5 or 5A will work for runs in your trailer. There is a converter at the TV then that gives you HDMI .

What PH said X2. You will not pull HD cables using the coax. Even with out ends off; ain't happening... staples or not. I would use bed storage and bath sink cabinet to reduce visibility with use plates to hide holes; cables run on the bottom / under floor. Good time to insulated pipes, tanks and floor!! Watch the tanks and water lines as well as, gas and electrics. Or, go the wireless method. Havent tried wireless but if you can do it for a couple hundie and it works, its a no brainer. Even with CAT you're still running wire. HD over CAT is for when you already have CAT in place, IMO. You might get an HD cable from living room ceiling to front bedroom ceiling. I don't know for sure how similar our 29s are.

I have done this in my mh, I split the hdmi signal to three tv locations. I finished with hdmi wall plates for an oem look. It will take you a while to find a route to run the cables, you should be able to get behind cabinets, fridge, microwave. do not pull the coax, it will already be split, you still need the coax for your satellite signal.
