2014 Jayco Seneca

I just be bought a new 2014 Seneca 37FS last Friday. Drove my Jayco Greyhawk 31ss from Memphis to Houston to trade. I noticed a much better fuel economy in the Seneca, although I haven't quite figured out the twin tanks yet. Not even sure how big they are... Can anyone let me know how to get the tv to work over the cab while driving? Have the Winegard in-motion satellite that I would love to utilize...I also haven't figured out the Bigfoot leveling system. I tried the auto level as the dealer showed me, but it was anything but level. I have emailed Bigfoot to see if it needs calibrating, and how to do it since no manual was included. Any other advice on the Seneca would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Here's a link to the bigfoot leveling system. http://thebigfootleveler.com/uploads...TEM_MANUAL.pdf

I'm going to play around with it and the TV while underway to see what works this weekend.

The fuel tanks hold a total of 74 gallons... roughly a 30/40 split.. though I don't know which side has the 30. (Maybe the DEF side?) The DEF tank holds 6 gallons.

Thanks guys! Did anyone else get the remote keyless entry for the cab? Jayco's website said it was included, but mine is nowhere to be found. I have emailed the dealer and Jayco. It had power windows & doorlocks, so I would think it should be there.

Got the tv to work! (Cut the white wire) Now another question! Ordered the dish pay as you go receiver ( actually two ). They will be here next Wednesday. I have 2 TV's inside and one outside. How do I use the 2 receivers so I can have different programs on 2 of the TV's? I haven't been able to find a wiring diagram for the cable (rg6). I find it amazing that Jayco will add a $1800 in motion Winegard dish system, and not include the $99 receiver. And the Winegard is factory set for Directv, who does not offer HD programming! Or pay as you go. Package went up $5 the day I ordered the receiver( was 39.99- now 44.99). Go figure.

Most of the in motion units come factory pre-set for DIRECT-TV, but it is an easy conversion to DISH by just moving a couple dip switches under the dome. As to using two receivers I would contact JAYCO and ask them if the coach has one or two wires coming from the Sat dish and where they terminate. Our 2008 was pre-wired and both wires ended up in the entertainment center so we could use a DVR receiver which used to require two inputs.

As a fyi, Jayco sent me the prints in PDF for the wiring (coax & audio/video) for the Seneca. I'm new to this forum, so I don't know if I can attach a pdf file or not, so if anyone needs it just let me know.

got satellite receivers today and after 2+ hours on the phone, I have both activated and working in HD. Even took a test run down the road- perfect. Thanks Grumpy, for the info.
Also, Dwoodinville, got the bigfoot calibrated. And FYI Driver side fuel tank is 34 gallons ( I rolled under on my creeper ) It had a sticker, but the passenger side tank sticker was covered, although it was noticeably bigger. I still haven't gotten a response from my dealer on the key fob.
