Winegard 1.0 upgrade to Winegard 2.0

We recently purchased a 2018 Tiffin Allegro Bus 45MP

The Coach has the Winegard 1.0 the data plan 10GB for $50/month is cost prohibitive for me to work remote. I'm considering installing the Winegard 2.0 with an open carrier data plan. Talking with the tech I can reuse the existing ethernet cable shown in the photo. However this approach also required 12vDC power to the unit.

My question: At the location in the photo where the cable comes thru the roof is there 12 vDC power I can tap into? How hard is it to snake a cable thru the ceiling of this bus?

Many thanks for your assistance.

I would ignore the Winegard and install a WeBoost cellular booster, get your carrier of choice WiFi HotSpot and keep the freedom to change carriers at any time. I'm retired but my wife tele-works full-time and I've been through many options to make sure she can always work. WeBoost RV is awesome and we've used it with Verizon and now T-Mobile. You can't create a cell signal where it doesn't exist but it really boosts a poor signal into a good one. We use Starlink RV when there is no cellular service at all. We also stream all of our TVs via YouTubeTV and have very few dead zones.

Your roof configuration is likely different from mine but PM me if you want details of how I installed the WeBoost.
