Satellite cables

I have a 2020 39RKFB and want to install a direct tv satellite dish. I have located the sticker on the roof allowing access to the pre-installed cables. There should be 3 cable ends which will allow me to attache them to my dish.
However I cannot locate this cable ends this entry roof point. Can anyone advise where these hook up cables can be located?

Very interested to hear this answer. I am considering doing the same thing for my 39FK.

2018 39fk satellite cable location on roof

Cables were not visible when cable location was opened. Told by riverstone rep that cables had shifted. Used a cable grabber and flashlight to locate. Coax cables (one for each TV) do not have connectors. Data cable for satellite has male end.

Is there any sign of 12vdc power up there? Also, what is the data cable? RJ-45? Thanks.

EDIT: Am I reading this right? You’ve been a member here for 9 years and this is your first post?

The power for the trav'ler is in the six pin data cable. The problem is that the connector from the rv and the connector from the satellite are both male. To use the rv cable directly, you will have to open the control box where the cable comes out of the trav 'ler and remove that data cable from it's connector. The problem that I see is that you must mount the satellite very close to the edge of the rv. My possible solution is to buy the extension cable which has male and female ends. I will connect the female to the cable from the rv to that and then connect the male end inside the control box.
