If you need to know where things are under the roof membrane then it's good info to have.
Lived and learned! But I also learned yesterday that you can't believe everything Jayco sends you. I have been fighting this 'Searching for satellite(771)' error on my dish for 4 days now after work because jayco's wiring diagram was 100% false!! The cable from my 'Sat' hookup in the docking station was a direct line like it said, but to the passthrough storage connection not the living room "Main TV"!! It also illustrates a 3-way splitter down to a two way splitter like I mentioned in a earlier post, but its actually just a 5 way splitter right off the docking station from the 'Aux' Port. For $30 at home depot I bought me a coax tracing tool that Rustybucket recommended earlier. LIFE SAVING DEVICE. I disconnected all the coax's from the 'Aux' and 'Sat' docking station hookups, and this is how mine were labebled from the factory
Sat Hookup in
Living Room - Orange Electrical tape
Den/Kids Room - Green Electrical Tape
Bedroom - Grey Coax, No Tape
Loft - Red Electrical Tape
Passthrough Storage - Black Coax, No Tape
Like I said, the black unmarked coax was the one that was designated to the living room according to the wiring diagram that Jayco sent me, which explains why I didn't get a lick of reception at all while wasting a total of 3 hours of my after work free time talking/yelling/arguing/crying to Directv that it wasn't my dish malfunctioning. Also, Directv told me to hook up the sat hookup to 'Sat 2', which was wrong. On both my HR23 and HR24, the hookup goes to 'Sat1 (SWM)'. Hopefully this helps anybody else trying to keep their sanity while installing this Directv Travler unit on their 377RLBH.
-Drill 2" toward the Road Side of the rig @ bathroom vent piping.
-Make sure to have a LONG hole saw to reach through about 6" of insulation and obstructions into the cabinet above the toilet.
-Three screws in the top of cabinet above the toilet open the panel for you to access the wires and run them along the vent.
-If you don't have 30lb fishing line and a small weight laying around invest in a wire snake to run wires!!
