Winegard 2.0

I have a 377FLIK and want to install a Winegard 2.0 on the roof.
Has anyone figured out where to bring the power wires for the switch into the cabin?
I'm thinking about vents that probably have 12V wires I can tap.
But I need to bring wires down for the switch.

I have a TOGO, very similar, I ran mine down the refrigerator vent. My refer is at the very back and I mounted the dome between the roof refer. vent and a roof vent. the top of the refer vent comes off with 4 screws (they're buried under sealant). There's a bird screen at the top of the flashing and I cut a couple of those wires out and routed the wire down into the area behind the refer. On my trailer the power center is under the refer so straight on down to it where there was an open circuit, added a 5 amp fuse, mounted the switch just above the power center. Easy peasy and very clean; no separate inline fuse holder, etc.

The Winegard 2.0 Playmaker receives power through the video cable connected to the Wally receiver. The cable transmits power and also the video in one cable. No need to run a separate power wire for 12 volt. I just finished the install and very simple.

Sorry I wasn't clear enough. Mine is a 4GLTE/Wifi hotspot. I need to run 12V up to the roof from inside and install a switch on a wall inside.

that's what the TOGO is, along with a wifi receiver and router

For this unit, there is no coaxial cable.
They provide wires to run 12V up to the unit on the roof.

I'm thinking about either running the wires down along the vent pipes on the roof into an interior wall for access to the fuse block (see attached picture of roof and vents).
Otherwise, I will try to access 12V power in the ventilation openings, but only the most rearward has 12V wiring to it for a fan.Click image for larger version

Unhappy

Sorry about the picture.
The picture is being rotated 180 degrees so it's upside down.
I tried uploading a rotated picture and it came out the same.
