Conduits and gear in 2018-2019 DS?

Hi,

Since the change in AV cabinet in 2018 was wondering where people were placing any conduits for 2018 or 2019 DS.

Where do you place any routers or boosters?

Plan to place sat receiver in the cab above TV.

I had 2 "outside dish" cables ran into AV cabinet. When at our property in Florida, the cable TV and internet are connected to one of these. The DVR and router sit in the AV Cabinet. We do not have satellite so output of DVR feed into satellite input. Ran HDMI to bedroom TV. Wish I would have also ran a coaxial cable to rear TV to allow feed for an additional DVR.

When specking-out a coach at a dealer recently, I opted for preps rather than factory installed components. I was under the impression that the Wifi conduit is run to the compartment above the driver's seat and the Sat conduit is run to the entertainment cabinet above the sofa/televator. I did not specifically ask so that's an important question for my follow-up with the dealer.

I have the wally and hard drive and a blue disc player in the cabinet above the
Televator. There is room for a router if someone knows one that will use a cell hotspot as it’s internet connection. The Newmar options seem quite expensive.

Did anyone conduits to the basement and for what current or future purpose.

Does anyone know the approximate cost to run conduit?

Does Newmar actual run conduit that you can use for your own purposes?

I had them install two 1" conduits from the half bath electrical compartment to the storage bay below. I plan to install battery, solar, transfer switch monitors in the hall way wall. Half bath cabinet connects to the hall way wall so it should be easy. I was denied because they only do conduits horizontal because of slides. I emailed the president of engineering explaining it was 6' of conduit in a non sliding area and would take them anywhere in the cabinet to anywhere in the storage bay and was approved. Dealer didn't raise the price so don't think it is much. Won't know how it turned out until end of June.
