Pulling a wire?

I have a 2013 Kodiak 279RBSL and would like to add an HDMI connection from the TV in the bedroom to the opposite side of the wall where the main room TV cutout is. I plan on replacing the COAX wall plate with a combination plate. Has anyone pulled a cable through this area? I hope to not cut addition holes.

Mike, I think the best thing to do is to call the manufacturer. They should be able to help you out.

I have no idea about your specific unit. If you have batt type insulation in the ceiling, you can run wiring around. If you have a pancake/dome light in the area, if you temporarily remove it, you will find about a 1" dia. hole that can be used for fishing wires (have done this). If you have a fan, vent, speaker, etc. in the area, removing them can provide access to the ceiling. If you absolutely must, you can use an electrical cover plate to cover up an access hole you need to make.

If you are able to work out an access path in the ceiling from one end to the other, if you use a nylon fish tape (Harbor Freight has them) you can work the tape from one end to the other and then pull your cable through. Can take some time and patience to feed the fish tape through where you need to.

Not sure if this is of any help or not. If not, just toss it away....
