Sat Dish Coax On Roof


Recommended Posts

I'm still looking for anyone that can help me locate where the coax cable for a satellite dish can be found on the roof of my 1999 Fleetwood Bounder. On the roof, opposite the batwing antenna, there is a label that says Winegard, still on the roof. There is a cable in the TV cabinet that is labeled "From DSS", so I believe that a coax has been run. I can not get Fleetwood to answer the phone and they will not respond to email. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe even a source I can contact to find the information. Surely someone knows how to access the coax. I am installing my own KingDome dish. Chuck

Mark and Dale, It is a rubber roof, but I can't feel any difference in the roof at the Winegard label or any place else. I have a tracer but no joy in getting a signal through the roof. It's very frustrating when the company that built the coach could answer my questions but refuse to respond to a customer. I will never buy a Fleetwood product again. I wish I had known about this poor customer service before we bought the RV. Live and learn I guess. Chuck

I also am surprised at the poor response from Fleetwood...I have called twice about things I had no clue about and got answers quickly both times. You might try the Discovery Owners on line but you will have to join to participate in their forum. I have loved everything about the Fleetwood so far!!

Hey Chuck it just dawned on me that I have just about every schematic for my Discovery (thanks to the original owner)so I'm pretty sure I have the one that shows where the Sat cable went through the roof. I won't be back to the RV till late Tuesday but I will look and see what I have that shows that wiring. If I find anything I will let you know.

That would be sooooo wonderful. I would really appreciate it. Chuck

So sorry it has taken so long but my computer died and I have been off line for a week!!! If you want to send me a PM with your e-mail address I will be glad to send you the wiring diagram that I was talking about. I traced mine back as far as I could and it seems to follow the diagram too.

That's strange......

I just spoke to Fleetwood Tech. this A.M. and they sent me (5)five PDF's to do with wiring(even had the coax schematic), plumbing, etc. Just give them the last six digits of the serial #.

Easy to get a hold of and always the best of help that they can provide.

I finally went on their Facebook page and shamed them and I got a call. They did send me wiring schematics with a generalized location for the coax. But still not adequate enough to go up on the roof and open up a hole and feel comfortable there will be a cable there. On another issue, I was told the parts department would call me withing 24 hours. That was five days ago and so far, no call. I'm just not impressed. Chuck

Did you get my PM with an email address? Chuck
