Sirius antannae cable routing on Class C

How would one route the antannae cable on a Class C? I have small side windows for he bunk and an entertainment center in the front of he overhead extension. I've actually lost sleep trying to figure it out.

I purchased a Sirius marine antenna and drilled a hole above where the receiver is mounted, I used a Shakespeare SRA-25 Ultra Low Profile Sirius Marine Antenna.

I stuck the "mouse" antenna on the roof with double sided tape then ran lead through the vent then over to the cabinet. Some have said that they had luck just putting the antenna in the cabinet as they will receive through wood/fiberglass just not metal.

I have almost the same situation. I could not find a good spot to place the antenna and bring the cable to the dash radio. I eventually stuck a small piece of rubber roof material on the front side of the roof and siliconed the antenna to it (this way if I decided to remove the antenna I wouldn't damage the roof). I then followed instructions I found on the internet to cut and re-splice the tiny antenna wire (it was much easier to do this than I expected). I drilled approximately a 1/8 inch hole through the side was just below the roof line and threaded the cut end through it and spliced it back together. I put a bead of silicone on the wire to keep it from flopping on the RV and siliconed over the 1/8 hole. Hope this helps. Worked perfect for me.

The antenna is fine in the cabover because the signal comes through the Fiberglas, but it MUST be mounted on metal for the signal to work properly. Our TV has a metal band holding it in place. We just put the antenna on the band and the magnet holds it in place and the signal comes in strong.
Good luck

"but it MUST be mounted on metal for the signal to work properly" unless you use the marine antenna which is meant to be mounted on fiberglass.
