Satellite prep

I have a Berkshire 390bh and understand it is prepped for satellite. Are there wires on the roof? I have been unable to find them.

I don't know if they prep it the same way as for the Georgetowns, but have a look up on the roof for a vent cap (mine are white plastic) just like the one usually found over/near the bathroom. There should be another one not associated with a bathroom, and is a fake for stowing the coax for satellite. Cable is usually found inside.......just unscrew the cap.

Most times what they mean by prepped is that they have a coax cable to the outside wall. Same spot where you would plug your RV parks cable to(different plug in just same location). So what I take it as is there is a cable running from outside to your tv. This means usually you have to get a satellite that is a tripod that sits on the ground. You can rewire it to have a satellite dish on the roof.

Were you able to find it and where did it allow you to mount a tv?

I know it looks like crap, but it is what they faxed me. I was able to find it based on that drawing.

Picture would be great. Did you install an additional tv or a satellite. I already have satellite installed with new wire. I was thinking I could use the factory wire to install an additional tv.

That's a great picture. I have one- I see you have two and solar panel. Could you send me a pic of any additional TVs you installed. Since you have 2 in motion units. I am trying to find a way to mount one for people in cabin to view while traveling. Since the other one is covered by the slide
Thanks for all the input....

I did replace the one in the bedroom with a 24" LED from the junky 19" it came with. I put the one small one in the dinette area for the kids, and I dont really have a need for another for viewing while driving.
