Looking at a 2251 LE Chevy chassis

Newbie here- have a couple of questions.
1) TV antenna- is there one as standard or an option?
I can get some HD channels over the air where I usually go but it seems
there is only a cable setup.
2) Fantastic fan- can I install one in a roof vent? Is the electrical available?
3) Is there room for a second battery? Or do I have to install it in a storage compartment and run a cable to the standard coach battery?

The rig seems perfect for the sizing I am looking for.
The amenities are amazing for the price.
I like the Chevy 6.0 setup also.

Any help would be great- thanks.
Eric

1--I have a Sunseeker 2250LE on the Chevy chassis (like it because of more passenger room) and antenna is standard. Cable hookup also standard but not prewired for satellite.
2--Somewhere in the forum I believe I saw where there is electric at the vent, but not sure if this applies to the LE which is sort of a price point unit.
3--The coach auxillary battery is in the step and there is room for a second one. I had it installed as I boondock and wanted the juice.
4--Where else can you get a full size queen bed in a 24' unit! I wanted a small unit because we do a lot of rail trail biking and I can park this in small side-of-the-road parking spots. Good luck!

Thanks.
I did look at the Sunseeker on the web to see if I could notice the differences. I did see the antenna- front passenger side.
Seems the dealers around here are selling the Forester.
Maybe an East vs West thing.

On a side note- what kind of mileage are you getting.
I am hoping for 10 (light towing also). One of the reasons I am staying away from the Ford V10 is the cab room you speak of. (and price)

I'm right at 10 mpg but only have 2100 miles on it so far. Might even improve just a wee bit with some more miles.
