New Audio/Video Routing for late 90's Country Coach

I'm in the process of updating my A/V system, dash radio, new Satellite system, and want to add some mid-coach speakers and a coax connection in a PS basement compartment. The new gadgets are the easy part of the equation. The problem I'm asking for inputs or examples of deals with routing wiring or connecting components in the DS overhead cabinet with speakers (new or existing) inside or outside the coach, and other components downstairs or outside (i.e. alternate portable sat dish, TV, speakers).

I've looked at the interior trim piece along the edge of the windshield as a possible pathway for wiring between the overhead A/V cabinet, the forward dash, and down into the basement, but it appears very tight and I can't visually find openings at either end in the cabinet and the under dash area.

Mine is a '98 CC Allure Rogue, w/Great Room Slide. Please tell me what you did on your similar vintage coach.

With bluetooth speakers and a DIRECTV Genie with video bridge and clients (mini genies) you only need a 120 volt source for the speakers and the TVs everything else is wireless. Oh, you do need a homerun of GR-6 coax from the dish to the Genie and a splitter for the wireless bridge.

I ran the wires for my new system through the driver's side windshield pillar on my 2001 Intrigue. It was a pain and done mostly by feel but it worked.

Bluefoot53, that's encouraging. Did you have to drill any new holes in the cabinet or floor? Any tips on how you fished the wiring?

I took the cover off the side pillar, pushed a wire up (were all the wires ran) till I could see / feel it in the upper compartment. I attached the cables that I wanted to run. I pushed down as my son pulled till we got them through. The bottom we used the same process but it was easier. I didn't drill any holes. Good luck!

Thanks for the tips. I did basically the same, fishing and feeling by hand. Had to remove the panel that the fuse box screws to near the drivers left foot to find a hole used for wiring to the DS front compartment. From there I can connect to coax for any purpose that I select in the A/V overhead cabinet.
