What is the trick to getting a successful search performed?
I have tried using quotes and everything that I know of. I just cant find the right way to get results.
I am trying to figure out how to run a cable from the tv down to the electrical cord door.
Thanks for any help.

I have pretty good success with searches.  First I make sure to search Forums.  If I want to search on 2 words (each word must be 4 letters or more), I use a + in front of each word.  Like +kitchen +sink.

You have 2 words that need a space between them.  And tv is too short, you need a minimum of 4 letters in each and every word.

Try +television +cable.  Good luck.

Can't help ya with the search issue, but I can show ya what I did in my 17SD to run wiring for a shore power and battery monitor I mounted in the cabinet over the side dinette.. I used a length of PEX tubing clamped to the back side of the divider wall.. I drilled a hole in the bottom of the overhead cabinet and nibbled out the corner of the lower bench for the tube to pass thru.. I originally used a length of 1/2" PEX but having a convenient wire chase later led me to increase it to a piece of 3/4" to handle the wiring for other items..

Carol Christensen,
Got it now. Thanks.

CC-John,
That is basically what I want to do. Did not know the best place on where to get the cable down from the top cabinet to the bottom. Thanks.

Good idea, plus it is neat and tidy.   I really despise wires being seen.  Tacky and amateurish.
