Everything went well, the sun finally came out Saturday afternoon and by Sunday afternoon it was dry enough to start.
We tied a rope to the dish and hoisted it up by a ladder placed on the side of the trailer, once up on the roof I looked for the marking which was near the door and I know the outlet was in the closet about 10í forward and on the other side of the trailer. Thankfully the power wire and cable had already been run. We just cut the opening and fished out the wires to make sure we had enough cable and then it was on to placement.
The comment has been made that there isnít a flat spot on the roof and yes there isnít so we had to find the lesser of the evils between the 2 vents. Just a note, when you break out the dicor put on some rubber gloves because you canít help but get some on you.
Marked the location then ran a liberal bead of dicor inside the line and placed the Travíler on it then screwed it down and I do agree to hand tighten the screws.
We had an extension cord up there and ran the traveler through all of its paces and it ran fine. We then secured all of the cables to the travíler and secured them then added another round of dicor around the base and all the screws. Installed the cover plate for the cable and landing plate for when stowed and a lot more dicor. I think I used 3 tubes of dicor.
We went inside and fished out the cable in the closet plugged it into the box and again tested the unit and all was fine. I moved the cable under the TV in the living room to the SAT connection and fired up the 211Z and it worked but not right so I looked at the instructions and found I needed to rerun the setup so the 211Z would sink with the new dish and in a minute we were up and running.
After running it for a couple of days the picture is better than the X2 was, changing channels (satellites) is effortless and so far the recording on the 211Z are a much better quality.
Everyone thank you for your insight and Jim thank you for the Cedar Creek document.
I'm a happy camper.
