If you mean the box where the antenna, cable and satellite feed into before going to the TVs, mine is in the cabinet above the passenger seat.

No , he means coming out of that box you have a hidden splitter that splits it and goes to bedroom TV and the Main TV up front.
It may look similiar to this picture.

Yes, its dangling unsecured below the cab. holding the DVD, TV amp etc. I took out all back wall mounted boxes including the ac outlet. Just go "fishin" with the Coax cables and eventually you'll find it for retrieval. Most have had to increase the size of the opening to get it to come out. As fitted its not suitable for splitting sat signals but one found easy to change.

Amazing how much information we have here.
I thought it may be underneath. I will have to take a look next time myself.


Now I have to figure out a place to put my Satellite Receiver.
May use the comaprtment below the TV witht he doors or I may build a shelf to elevate the TV Stand and have enough room for the receiver between the TV cabinet and the TV. Something strong like a Computer monitor stand that can handle the TV mount as well as be connected to the cabinet below. Then I can slide my Sat receiver into it.
Like this one.
Any ideas folks?

Noted another entry in the forum where a shelf was fitted to dwg. slides and the Sat receiver left with slack cables. It enabled easy connect/disconnect for when the sat receiver was not needed, converting the large storage area free for temp stuff again. Believe receiver was strapped down with velco straps. Also leaves access to "boxes" in back of cab. for storage behind the sat box.

That is exactly what I'm looking for as an easy solution. Now I have to find the message where they talk about it.

Here ya go, I used these drawer slides from Lowes. They're rated for length and weight. Ball bearing like FR used just installed flat. Package shows how to install, are removable with latch. Also very rugged.

Actuailly I got a thanks. It took the laptop with mouse, the i-pad, the i-phone, and all the chargers an acessories away from the dining table which is smallish when folded. Makes a good comm station "in port", all stowed under way. Now we have a table without haiving to shift corded stuff. Mod's been around, may have origin in the Blue forum. Co-pilot seat good height for typing.
