Also have an hdmi three way splitter that connects to the outside, bunk and bedroom TV.

Forgive the rather crude diagram.
Pics from inside the cabinet might not help you.

Bedroom TV has an hdmi wireless receiver. The transmitter is in the TV cabinet in the kitchen and sits AFTER the four way HDMI splitter.

This way hd sat from the single receiver in the kitchen feeds all devices via the HDMI connections. Even the digital off air antenna plugs into the dish receiver and puts the local channels on the HDMI. This One To Many concept requires all sets watch the same thing.

However if my wife wants to watch something different in the bedroom on a local station she can still do that. And because by bedroom TV is a combo built in Dvd she can watch DVDs in there too.

Angio, I ran my hdmi cable and invertor wire from behind the main TV, behind the microwave, though the top of the refrigerator cabinet, into the cabinets above the bed. Here's where it gets tricky, in the rear of the couch there is a piece of paneling at a angle where they are hiding all the wires, take that off. Now you can get your hdmi cable to the rear TV. I completely took the panels off behind the TV and ran the cable behind the paneling. While I had it all tore apart I added a bigger brace to add a bigger TV, a 45", insulated to cut down on noise and added 2 invertor plug-ins, one for the TV up high and one low with USB charging capabilities.
Hope this helps!

I did not run an hdmi to the bedroom. The bedroom hdmi is on a wireless sender receiver.

The hdmi run to the dash and bunk ran from the TV kit cabinet left into the stereo cabinet and then into the corner cable channel in the broom closet (now a pantry). Down from there into the switches area and out e bottom to the battery compartment. From there Both the output of the inverter ac wire and the hdmi followed the same track. From there I wrapped them in black automotive wire wrap and followed the chassis forward to outside the radiator frame. From there up to the inside of the dog house. Drilled a hole in the top right side of the dog house below the cover and passed them up thru that. There, an outlet was placed for the inverter to charge a pc while driving. The hdmi pops out there. An ac dc mini HDMI monitor on the passenger dash can be plugged in there to charge and the hdmi feeds the video to a mini hd monitor. The coach has in motion sat that works well while on major highways. An RF remote control sender unit converts my iR dish remote to RF and allows my wife to flip sat stations from the passenger seat if she likes.

A word of caution. I discovered all those hi freq wireless waves from the remote sender and Hdmi sender and even the wifi thermometer in the water bay were conflicting with my tire pressure monitor systems, and I actually had to install a repeater booster to continue to receive the tire data.

I'm about to do what you did. Running the hdmi cable from the splitter off of the vip box to the BR tv. Do you recall how long a hdmi cable I would need? 25, 35, 100 foot?
