Pulled the trigger today - Put deposit on a 38A

Moving up from my 2014 Sunseeker 3010DS

Heading to Lower MI to "see" the real deal and do paper work this weekend.

Love the advice about camping when I go to pick it up, just worried about the weather during this time of year. I don't want to freeze with a smile on my face.

Anyone want to buy a Sunseeker!!

I am sure I'll find out, but the one question I have after watching many videos is, where is the local HD antenna for the TV on a Berkshire 38A??

Looking forward to learning all about and joing the Diesel Pusher Crowd.

the TV antenna should be near the front. It is the jack antenna that does not need to be extended. There is a control inside on the ceiling for you too turn it.

There is a box on the ceiling behind the driver's seat. The on/off button is closest to the wall. There are 4 indicator lights and a turn knob. As you turn the knob the lights will light to indicate your signal strength. The 2016 38A comes standard with "Roof mounted Winegard Trav'ler satellite prep".
When you go for your PDI remember to bring a Blu-Ray DVD with you to check all the TVs. Don't forget to check the 2 flip down monitors in the bunk area.
Also remember if you slide your driver or passenger seat back to enable them to swivel around, or recline the back of the seats DON'T FORGET to slide them back up before you close your slides!
For the bunks I found a really nice feather bed (that is fold away bed size) that fits the bunks perfectly and makes them really comfortable to sleep on. I have all the website info on where to buy them. PM me if you would like the info.
Congratulations on your new coach!
Karen

The Trav'ler (Winegard) satellite antenna Direct TV is an Option but the "prep" for it is standard. Most dealerships (at least MHSRV) won't order the coach without the optional antenna.

the HD antenna is located in front of the front ac unit . It sits lower than the unit in its normal position. It doesnt often require an elevation change , but we were told that sometimes a small turn or two may be necessary to fine tune a reception. ....
