Install a Cable connection

Bought a 2011 26TBSS in October. This model didn't come with a TV but did come with the antenna and booster. I'm looking to install a cable wire to hook up in campgounds with the service. Anyone do this? I don't want to unnecessarily damage the underside but need a place to run the wire. Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Bill

Are you sure it doesn't have an outside cable connection?

Yep I'm positive. I unscrewed the jack in the back of the cabinet and it has an unused terminal. I'm going to assume a cable connection would go there. It's running the cable without destroying anything is my challange.

Scroll down the following page until you get to Flat Coax Cable. Not a very elegant solution but might serve as a temporary fix for occasional use.

On my last TT I just drilled a hole in the side near the TV and used a pass through connector that you buy from and RV shop. Then just ran a short length of coax from there to the tv. Then just sealed the outside waterproof box.

You are right on! That is what I would also do, but I was thinking that maybe he is concerned about drilling through something vital. Bill - what is the case?
