Moving TV cable

I have a 2003 HR scepter. The tv is mounted over the wind shield.
Can someone please tell me how to run the cable to the rear of the front slide so I can move the TV.
Thank You

Every model and floor plan (layout) is different, so some creativity is required. I'm guessing your roof antenna coax and maybe satellite coax come in there, but where do they come from? And what is in between where they are now and where you want them? Chances are there is a molding along the ceiling above the slide, so maybe that could be removed and extension cables run behind it?

Will you be moving the video switch, DVD, satellite receiver, etc. as well? Tell us more about what you are tring to do. And maybe a photo to illustrate what you have.

I removed the old TV from above the dash, rebuilt the overhead cabinets, and mounted a 40" LED TV on a motorized mount behind the couch, which was in the main slideout with the dining room table & chairs. I ran cables from the equipment cabinet on the far right, across behind the cabinets, down the windshield post on the driver's side, underneath above the storage bays to a large plastic pipe that carried wiring to the slideout. Below is a link to what I did.

The head-banger is finally GONE!

"Joe" did a nice job and did it right. Getting the cable down the "A" pillar is pretty easy. The hard part is getting into the MOVING slide. If you can get to the cable run in the slide, you'll be good.
