I didn't pull the cable out as far as it would go so I can't answer the question. You can see from the last pic that the coax & data cable were at least 3 feet from the pre-wired hole and there was more available. My gut tells me you won't get 8-10 feet of wire, but that's just a guess.
It's relatively easy to go on the roof and check how much cable you'll have. Just open the pre-wire spot, fish out the cable and measure it. Then replace and cover with some tape. Then you'll know if you need to look for a closer installation spot.
Another possible option would be to use the data cable that came with your Trav'ler and connect it to the one out of your roof. I don't know if you'd be able to find a connector or if you'd have to cut and splice wires (yech).
I found a contact for Winegard on another forum. His name is Andy Crowner (email: email@example.com
). That was from 2009 so he may have moved on by now. But you could try to ask him the question if he's still there.
