If you want wired, you can also use HDMI to Ethernet such as this Digital HDMI Extender By Single Cat 5E/6.


A good option, Cat5 even with connectors on do not require a big hole although the "mini HDMI" end is about the same size as Cat5 ends..

Folks do need to be aware that some of these extenders are "passive" or draw power from the HDMI ports to avoid the need for external power supplies..

Passives and phantom ones that draw power from the HDMI ports tend to fail much easier than ones requiring an external supply..

Had this issue with connecting remote PCs to projectors mounted from the ceiling. Went through a few passive extender failures until I replaced with ones with external power supplies.

The one 1492 posted does require the use of the included power supplies which should be more reliable.

Hard to say without poking around inside your RV but they generally aren't air tight.

We've had pretty good luck finding existing holes to fish cables thru. Usually, it's going down into the underbelly along and then back up. Just make sure not to conflict with the slides or other moving parts.

If it just TV you want to watch is multiple places in the RV, DTV Genie and Mini Genies work well on existing coax. We even send it across the road to the two TV in our commuter travel trailer, as the previous owner of the site had a conduit run unground across the road. DTV antenna and Genie are are on lot A along with a 2 Channel HDDVR, and two Genie minis on lot B all via DTV SWM technology. We can watch stuff recorded on the Geni and HDDVR on any TV via DTV whole home.
