If you know the watts from the appliance or from the manual, divide by the volts to find amps.

Although the Winegard supports 2 receivers, I will likely use only one and either move the receiver from room to room or better yet, have the bedroom TV watch the same channel as the living area.

What I need to know is if the satellite prep extends to the bedroom, if I need to run a seperate wire to the bedroom, or if I should just use a splitter (post receiver) to send signal to the bedroom. Does anyone know how this is wired or how it works?

I had a dealer installed Winegard roof mount on my last TT and it had two different "satellite in" leads- one in the front of the TT and one in the rear.

edited to add:
I have a 2011 Sabre 31RLDS
Dear customer
The satellite wiring is only ran to the living room tv.

Dear Duchie,
I'm sorry to say there isn't a list of amps provided. I can try and help if you have a specific appliance you needed the information for.

I just checked into a RV park in Chattanooga and the packet they gave us had some estimates of the AMP's of various appliances.
Air Conditioner 12.5 amps
Converter (with nothing in use) 1.5 amps
Electric Water Heater (6 gals.) 12.5 amps
Electric Refrigerator 4.0 amps
Microwave Oven 12.5 amps
Electric coffee pot 9.0 amps
Toaster 10.0 amps
Hair Dryer 10.0 amps
TV 2.0 amps
Electric Fry Pan 10.0 amps
Iron 10.0 amps
Food Processor 6.0 amps
Crock Pot 1.5 amps

Hope this helps.

can anybody tell me if my new 12 31 rets with entertainment upgrade package has a signal booster for the antennea? i think thats the package name/upgrade. went camping last weekend, and digital signal froze and pixilated(?) all evening/night until i got tired of it and read a book instead.

dont have my owners package here, i know i should but its in the camper and i didnt see anything about it listed for troubleshooting.

any ideas/upgrades besides satellite or cable? i want to camp, and not just move my house elsewhere. tv is only an evening/nighttime activity.

If amps are provided; multiply by 120 for watts.

If watts are provided; divide by 120 for amps.

The booster is behind the plate where the antenna cable is connected. There is a small black button on the plate that needs to be pressed. Did you try to swivel the crank up antenna to a different angle?
