King-Dome Model 9704-LP Replacement

I have a King-Dome Model 9704-LP satellite dish installed on the roof of my coach that I'm looking to repair/replace (it was factory installed in 2015 for the original owner and I've never set it up or used it, but we have a two month trip coming up!!)
Somewhere along our travels, I must have hit a tree branch and poked a small hole in the plastic dome cover. That allowed rain water to enter into the dome, short everything out, and basically fry the "guts" of the actual satellite dish (a whole 'nother story ).
The housing unit is structurally all fine and is securely attached to the roof (i.e., it's waterproof), so my "dream" would be to replace the "guts" of the actual satellite dish as a plug n' play, replace the plastic dome, and then use all the existing wiring/mounting going forward (after buying a receiver, of course).
Plan B is to replace the whole unit with a new model, but that entails removing the current housing, plugging the holes, then drilling NEW holes to accommodate the smaller footprint of the new unit - looking to avoid messing with the integrity of the roof if I can . . .
Ant thoughts/solutions/sources for a replacement dish?
TIA
