Wifiranger installation

I am getting ready to install a WiFiRanger on my ACE 27.1. I will trying to get this accomplished tomorrow, but my question is where to run the Cat5 from near the TV antenna to inside the RV without making another penetration. Does anyone have some experience with using vents or other orifices?

I have been considering the same and in my situation I am looking at using the ladder installation method and running the cable behind the rear cap and in through where the washer drain or outdoor refrigerator have created access points.

I haven't started the planning but I'm in the consideration phase. Next year I am planning on teleworking from the coach and I believe the WiFi Ranger or similar signal booster will become a necessity.

I've heard of folks using the fridge vent for various wire fishing, assuming you have one through the roof.

I haven't done it, but it makes sense as it just opens up into that plenum space behind the fridge.... easy access to the kitchen cabinets in most units.... don't know about the Ace though.

I'm going to see what I can find for pathways tomorrow. Once I figure it out (assuming I do), I will post some pictures.

Did you figure out a path?
I'm also looking to get CAT5 from TV antenna area to 'IT Closet' just below... I don't mind making another hole in roof and sealing - but haven't figured out just how to get through the roof and into the cabinet easily.
