Anyone have knowledge of what is meant by the term "satellite prep package" on CR products? I am thinking of installing a roof dish on my SevilleIF the coax and power cable is already routed to the roof.

Thanks in advance

To my knowledge you just have the outside jacks on the side of your unit. I did some research on this before for myself and you will need to drill holes in your roof and run a cable down inside if you want to add a rooftop satellite. Also have to run power through the new holes.

I didn't want to drill my roof so we are looking at an automatic that we can attach to the ladder when parked. I currently use a fixed dish on a portable tripod. Edited by: WildWildWest

That is what I was afraid of. I also use a tripodbut get so tired of having to align it. I want a SWM Directv dish and so far the traveller is the only one I have found. Edited by: GaPete

That must be what they call"roughing it"?

Also got tired of lugging a big antenna and tripod, sold it and bought a Dish Tailgater; just set it on the roof and it does all the work in about 5 minutes. Been on the road for almost 9 weeks now and it works perfectly. Best of all....DW is happy.

I have a Winegard Trav'ler SK3005 antenna that I purchased for our previous trailer. When we got the Cruiser in March I took itoff the old trailer and installed it on the Cruiser. We now get full HD and just take the DVR from the house. I did not drill any holes through the roof. I used cable surface raceway to conceal the cables, ran them down the unit alongside the molding for the slide. Then I did drill a hole in the floor of the slide for the entertainment unit and ran the cables up behind the fireplace to the entertainment unit. I haven't figured out how to post pictures here, but I can email them if you are interested.

Thanks Bernie. Just to verify, Travelers have both a power cable and a coax?

The Travler has four coax connections, so you could theoretically take two into the bedroom and two into the e-center. I just used two to my e-center DVR. That way I can record one and watch one at the same time. The power/control cord is a bit smaller that a coax and connects to a Travler control box that sits on top of my DVR.

Trees are the reason I like the free standing style. Too often I can't find signal unless I roam around with 100ft of coax dangling behind.

Yea ruffing it "comfortably".
