How to run co-ax to basement compartment?

Greetings, I recently bought a 2002 Fleetwood Storm 30H (class A). It has the overhead entertainment system in a cabinet up front. I'd like to run a co-ax cable to a basement compartment on the right side.
I think I can handle the actual basement part of the routing but how can I get the cable from the entertainment center (where it will pick up the antenna/cable signal from an A/B switcher and go through the wall behind the cabinet, and down the pillar to the basement?
I'm not sure but it seems like the walls are solid styrafoam, the front pillar is very small and I don't see any exposed fasteners that would indicate how to take cabinets or trim off.
I thought of splicing into the cable tv hook up that comes from the back of the rig but the basement tv would only work when I hook up to cable (rarely) - so I really need to go all the way to the front entertainment cabinet and pick up the main feed.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Although my unit is newer, it has 110v/12v & A/V connections in the bay just behind the entry door. I have never really looked to see how they're routed but I would assume they're under the floor, maybe along the frame/chassis. The connections are in the top of the storage bay. I wonder what year they started doing that.

usually the cowlings, coverings along windshield moldings, are detachable and have room for additional cable routing from top to bottom. If I understand your question correctly. I have used it for additional wiring. Run cable down to under dash to chassis frame to compartment. Coax cable is OK for outdoor runs.

I also have the 120V outlets in the basement compartment. I don't have the cable connection though. I'll look at the cowling on the inside of the windshield. I'm sure they come off but I don't want to break anything.

I have a Pace Arrow and was able to remove the plastic molding on the side windshield pillar, then run the cable into the engine compartment and then to wherever you need it.

I've done the same.
