Questions about Forester I ordered

Does anyone recall how much the satellite system option is?
What brand is the satellite?
Is the propane tank really only 9.8 gallons and is that the filling capacity (80% level) so the tank is really 12 gallon?
I will probably have more questions.

We stopped optioning the Sat and just pre-wire for it now. Too much confusion. Used to be one sat handled all...then they did a DISH only version and then a DirecTV only version, auto, in-motion, etc, etc. Now they have one that is DISH only but with an aftermarket add to make it DirecTV. We just gave up.

Propane tank is 12.25 gallons WC (Water Capacity), which means it is 9.8 gallons of actual propane. Most MFG's list their water capacity for some reason. I have never been able to figure out why other than people don't read the fine print and they ASSUME that it is LP capacity and it makes them look better. Seems shady to list it that way. We list actual capacity.

bclemens-thanks for the quick reply. So there is satellite pre-wiring in the ceiling down to the TV for a roof mounted dish? Can a portable dish be hooked up to the exterior cable and use the cable at the TV to connect to the sat receiver. Then use another cable from receiver to TV?

There is satellite pre-wiring from the roof to the TV, the coax is covered in a small white box on the roof, the mounting plate is in front of that towards the front of the coach. You can hook up a portable satellite to the coax by the 30 AMP service on the drivers side of the coach.

Transit bars?

Another question, does the 2701DS come with transit bars for the two slides?

What radio/nav model do they come with. Is the DVD player on the TV or in the radio?

Are there any positive posts about the 2701DS? I haven't seen much posted about this floorpan at all.

My dvd player is in the radio to play dvd you go to menu on tv and select input to av2. It also serves as cd player.

It depends on the model and type of slide we use. There are few instances where you would ever need to use a transit bar.


We use a Jensen radio that includes Bluetooth hookup, Nav, Dvd, AM/FM radio, and all the hook ups to Sirius radio. For the Sirius Radio you need to call and subscribe to use it.

Agree I got 3 for two slides. Have never used them. When we go out I have a check off list I leave on driver's seat to make sure I've done everything Before leaving.
