HDMI cable

Need to replace HDMI cable for the front tv on my 2015 hurricane 27K. How much of a project am I in for?

On my 2015 32n the cables run to a cabinet over the door and the front tv is in the slide opposite. The hdmi cable went bad and Thor told me that it was unlikely that I would be able to replace it myself due to routing over, under, around and through. The solution that I came up with was a wireless hdmi extender. These things run a bit over $150, but thatís cheaper than a technician and a replacement cable. It works well.

I know as much about those cables; as hogs do about the Sabbath...
But welcome to the Forum anyway!

What happens that causes an HDMI cable to go bad?

The problem in my coach was the tv picture breaking up. I donít know why; perhaps interference from other electrical wiring running in parallel with the hdmi cable.

I brought in another tv and it had the same problem. So I connected the tv temporarily with a 25 foot hdmi running across to the video distribution box and the picture was fine. Also tried these tests with direct connections to blu-ray and Dish box with the same results. I also tried an in-line hdmi booster with no improvement. Finally I concluded that the cable was bad.

Thor service line told me that the routing of the cable makes it impractical to replace after the final assembly of the coach. They recommended the wireless hdmi solution (perhaps suggesting that my problem was not the first theyíd heard of the issue).

Anyway, the tv works well now.

If I had to replace the HDMI cable in our 2015 27K I think I would look at using surface mounted wire molding around the front of the cab up close to the ceiling. Your MH probably has the drop down overhead bunk which will hide most of the molding. Our MH is in storage currently so I can't look at it to see if this idea is really practical though I do know the cabinet with the electronics and the TV over the door are both pretty close to the bunk. I used this molding in a previous RV with good results though I did have to use a few very small screws in addition to the adhesive tape the conduit came with. Good luck

Wireless HDMI replacement for sale

I recently replaced my MyWireless TV2 hookup with a solid cable and have one for sale. Itís made by Actiontec and ran me about $200 a few years back. Itís in like new condition and works great if anyone is interested. You can find more info about it online, just search for: Actiontec MyWirelessTV2. Itís 1080pHD and transmits HDMI to HDMI wirelessly a pretty good distance. Iíll let it go for $100 including shipping and insurance. You can email me for pics or more info. Thanks.
