    Running TV Antenna Wire 2000 2855 Hull Question

    I am planning to mount TV antennae on radar arch shortly. Because of the location of TV its going to run along the port side. I have run depth finder wires on starboard pretty easy. Port side I can see there will be challenges. I am sure someone on the board here has done this before and can give some insight and help. Please feel free comment & advise. Thanks

    I have a '96 2855 and I ran it up the starboard side until just before the head wall where the aft bilge pump hose exits. From there you can follow the hose under the steps and cross under the floor to get behind the galley cabinets. Hope this helps.

        That should be the forward bilge pump

          Yes that's what I figured. There an access panel in aft cabin to get the plumbing from the head. I just replaced two thru hull fittings in there. Not sure why I did not think of that. Thanks again fro the tip!!! Did you have to remove the steps to run the wire? My hull is a little different that yours I have an extra set of steps coming down. Thanks

              Yea I tried over the weekend. No go. I have aft cabin door enclosure that your model does not have. Creates too much of an obstacle.

                Update. After numerous attempts to get fish tape from the mid bilge to just under the galley cabinets I was successful . It looks like I will be able to do the way you did yours.

                  This job is now complete. I was able to fish tape under the steps in the mid bilge area, under the false floor at the entrance to aft cabin (I have privacy door model into aft cabin), under galley and the up to V birth. Thanks for the suggestion Lee27803.

                  I spoke to another 2855SU owner and he ran his cable on port side thru aft cabin ceiling. That was a major job. Involved removing a lot a cabinets & drilling holes. Glad I took the extra time to pursue it this way. Thanks again Lee27803

                    Good to hear, It was a much simpler job on mine. How do you get A/C back there with the cabin door there. Mine blows down the walk way and into the aft berth.

                      What did you use for the antenna you mounted on the arch ? My A/C is ducted behind the sink cabinet into the rear aft cabin and has a vent in the wall as I have a door also. Most 2855 models from 2000 up
                      have the door hanging locker and power supply are now covered.

                        I have a Shakespeare 3015 antennae. If you decide to do this job it will be the same as mine. Let me know when you are ready and I will give all the shoy cuts and tips
