Well, decided to put the Eero router on the back end table. The water overflow hose is under that platform. I drilled a hole and used a fish stick and my flexible camera to get the cable through there. Attached are photos of the 3D printed router and Ethernet adapter holders. Still need to pull the cable above the coroplast, reinstall the basement panels and splice in the outlet.

Finally completed my install. Here are some photos. Tapped into the basement outlet to add an outlet on driver side.

An update from the road to Alaska. We did our first Alaska RV trip in 2014. We struggled to do email and other simple things. It was an internet desert. 2023, and StarLink arrives to Canada/Alaska. We are currently in Whitehorse, YT. I could not be happier with our install. It takes us about 5 minutes to setup StarLink and the weather station on the back ladder without having to climb up. We have had a few occasions where we have had an obstruction, but not bad, even in the trees at Liard Hot Springs. We added a Roku stick and have been following national news and weather thanks to the Live feature. I am not saying everyone should set up the way we did, merely saying it is working great for us. We brought along an Eero satellite and Arkware has it in his rig. We are both using my StarLink for streaming and internet (and phone in remote areas using WiFi calling). We lost Dish back around Lake Louise, which was expected. Sirius comes and goes. DishAnywhere has not been great.

We actually have two since one of ours was defective and they replaced the entire thing except Old Glory for free. I am learning about Starlink, and voraciously consuming the threads. Our rig will have washer dryer hookups so that may be a place for the router for us. There has to be a plug in there. Expecting delivery of trailer late July early August. Meanwhile Iím soaking up stuff. Big switch from a Winnebago coach for us.

There are actually two plugs in there. If you don't put in the W/D, they should be on their own 15 amp circuits. Any time I need to add a small space heater in the winter, I plug in there since the circuit is not used elsewhere.
