If so, is there an accessible connection up there or is that only for a permanent dish?
We are considering Dish-for-my-rv pay as you go service to try it out. If we like it I guess I could put a dish on but want to be sure before taking that leap.
The other end of the cable you mention IS under the roof sheeting. If you need it, I have the diagram provided by FR. I also used a wire (signal) tracer to verify where they said it was, before I drilled the whole.
It's up fairly close to the OTA antenna and is IS completely covered by the roof.
I will add this; they take the easiest way out at the factory; or worse they deliberately try to screw you over. The COAX at my rear TV was Orange. I find an orange COAX in the main entertainment compartment. Easy right???
NO!!! The ORANGE wire ran thru the wall about halfway to the compartment at which point it was connected with a "barrel" connector to a BLACK piece of COAX and THAT is what terminated in the compartment.
I figure they just ran out of orange and use black to finish the "run"; How dumb is THAT???
