add a tv

I would like to add a tv where the mirror is between the slide and the bathroom. Mounting it is easy. running wires for hdmi antenna and power is the hard part. any ideas on a path other than on the floor.
Thanks
Ed

Perhaps one of these might be a good solution? Connect and transmit wireless video content from your Blu-ray / DVD player and DVR / Cable box turning your HDTV into a wireless TV for $200.00

If you are trying to avoid running 110 AC and other wires, but have 12V close by, there are many 12V TVs out there (look for the most efficient/lowest amperage one). If the circuit your tapping in to is for normal incandescent lights, you can offset the increased load from the TV by changing your lights to LED bulbs. Of course this wouldn't work for your wireless HDMI unless you can find a 12V version of that too.

thanks for the replys.
I would really like to find a route in the ceiling to run wires.

This may, or may not, work for you Ed but when I was contemplating on placing a TV in that spot, I considered the air conditioning ducts that are inside the ceiling.

In my RV, they are just channels in the structure of the ceiling, then covered with the ceiling material. Not sure if you can make use of them or not.

Wireless HD HDMI packages are available @ Best Buy 4 around @90.00. I have used for years and no hassles. Get one keep box nice, if you don't like the unit take it back nothing lost.
Now that I use ROKU & Hulu Live I no longer use it.

Squerly, contemplated but didn't follow through?
At one time I was thinking of punching through the roof and run conduit. seems a little extreme.

No, I didn't follow through. Turned out that hanging a TV on that wall would catch on the slide out when was retracted.

But if you can get a wire to the air conditioner, then the channels from the air run the length of the coach. And it would have been reasonably easy to bring the wire back out in the immediate area of the wall.

Wireless is probably the better idea.
