2019 Phaeton 37BH, Location for booster, router?

We're having a cell booster and a router installed in our 37BH. We want them in the living area or cab, probably in an overhead cabinet. Need reasonable access for the antenna cable and to 12V power.
I'd appreciate suggestions regarding where exactly to locate them. Thanks.

I have no idea what the layout is of your rig, but I can tell you what I did. The booster I bought is a WeBoost Connect 65 RV model. It comes with a telescoping pole with an antenna on top which I have secured to my ladder with zip ties. Initially I had the coax cable come in through one of the slides but when I got some time I used a coax connection in the rooftop "Travelr" hat to connect to. The system included a "flat" coax cable that works perfectly coming out of the hat. The other end of that coax is in the rat's nest of cables in my bedroom A/V cabinet. I brought the cable outside of the cabinet so that the status lights on the booster could be viewed and also because it seems to radiate a bit of heat, especially at the coax connections. I connected the output from the booster to the unused "Surr(ound?)" coax cable which runs to the front cabinet where the coax splitter is at. I disconnected it from the splitter and joined it to the center TV coax (also removed from the splitter). Instead of the TV coax going to the TV, it is connected to the indoor antenna which is currently loose until I experiment a little more to figure out the best place to mount it. If you have a booster module and router, I would try to hook the booster as close to the antenna as possible, assuming that the boosted signal can travel a further distance to the router with no degradation. Of course, OTA programs can no longer be viewed on the center TV, but that's okay with me.

Thanks, Jeskibuff. Some interesting ideas. I'm trying to avoid the A/V cabinet: if I go in, I'll never get out!

I hang my Visible cell phone (hotspot) in the PS compartment next to the front TV. Seems to have good reception in that location. 120v and 12v both readily available.
