Which receiver are you using? Did they have to modify anything?

Gasman,
Don't know what to say. I was on my roof the other day to look at the front AC and was surprised to see a circle drawn with what looked a black marker. I am assuming (I know what happens when you assume) that it is the location to drill for the wiring if you wanted to install a satellite receiver.

I also have the travler mounted on the roof of my 2014 berkshire. Had it installed when I purchased it. No mods had to be done.

This was posted some time back. I do not know if it is accurate. May help. Good luck.

Direct TV, not sure of the exact model. LazyDays installed the dish on the center of the roof and the wired came down and into the center entertainment area.

Looking at the floor plans, (I have a 390FL), the problem may be that my front TV is in the slide. That is what the guy at CW commented on..no way to wire into the slide without major (read expensive) wiring/modifications.

Gasman do you have a cable labeled Sat feed in your entertainment center? The only use for that is the other end is on the roof. If you have that (and it's a switch plate with the cable fitting on it) then you should have the prep in the roof.

I believe that I do, but I'll check it next time I'm at the storage area.

That's EXACTLY where I found mine on the 2011 model. However, I found no power wiring; had to improvise.

Boowho??

P.S. Love the professionalism of the drawing itself.....Sorta like it was drawn on a paper napkin or some such!!! That drawing came DIRECTLY from FR!!! Guess they don't have a CAD/CAM department, eh??


Boowho??
