Hdmi damaged cable end

HELP! I bent down the HDMI Cable end and broke off the tip pushing my Wally receiver back in the component cabinet. Too much extra cable tied up and stuffed behind my DVD, Wally Receiver and 4-way splitter. Itís impossible to run a new cable as it is run thru the walls and ceiling from the TV on the opposite side of the coach. I own a Thor ACE 2018 model 27.2. My question is: can a new end be spliced onto the HDMI/Ethernet cable? Is wireless Bluetooth an option? I have (3) TVís and (1) Wally Receiver for Dish. Whatever displays on the main TV then the other (2) mirror the main one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks 🙏 and God Bless!

Yes, but it is tedious and you need the special crimping pliers. Best to let the "Geek Squad" do it.

I purchased a 2018 Windsport. During construction they must have run a nail or staple through the ethernet cable running to my rear tv. Rather then tearing the coach apart they installed a Wireless 3D Digital Kit by Iogear. I've seen them on eBay for $45 or so.

Hope this helps, Lee

While it was not easy, with the help of my son and the linked items from Amazon I was able to run a new cable from near the ceiling on one side to near the ceiling on the other side. Securely tape the new cable to the old, liberally lube it, and pull cable from where it is exposed under the RV.

My hdmi cable was also damaged and rather than trying to run a new cable, the dealer installed a hdmi wireless system called "MywirelessTV". It works great sending the signal to the main tv, then I already had another wireless system myself. I just loop from the first system to the second then I can place the reciever an either of the other two tvs in the RV. We are never going to watch more than two tvs at a time so this works fine for us.
