They sent me the schematics immediately via email but unfortunately, that's the only place I can view it. When I go to save the document on my MAC its unreadable. I printed a copy from a PC and it is very light and almost unreadable too. My suggestion is just to call them and speak to customer service. They were very nice and responded immediately. I have attached what they sent me but not sure if it will be readable.

As a follow up, we decided to convert to the wireless genie system. Don't have to add more cables. Will get dish installed in a few weeks. Hopefully it all works as planned!

We considered doing that but what we record to watch later all seems to be on at the same time and we need as many tuners in the Genie as we can get to make sure everything gets recorded. We kept the wired receivers that have their own tuners (H25's). Whatever works, right?

Good Luck with your install.

I am looking to put the Winegard SK-SWM3 Slimline Automatic Multi-Satellite TV Antenna on my 2016 Pinnacle. Does anyone know if there are issues I should know about? I has a curved roof as well.

I just purchase the Winegard Directv SWM3. I am getting it installed this week. Can the coax from the antenna connect directly to my satellite input or tap into the cable distribution box that runs to all of the TV's? I believe it should but Camping World thinks I need to run separate lines. I have a 2016 Pinnacle 38 FLSA. Not sure if it is sat ready or not.

Oriole Hawaii, I installed the swim in my 355 using the existing wiring. My dish is on the roof. The cabling comes down through the roof and follows a vent pipe in the bathroom into the pass through storage. A shelf was built in the pass through storage for the control box and the power inserted. On the backside of your dock station I removed the coax for satellite and auxiliary and connected those to the directtv splitter. I left the cable TV coax connected in case we ever want to use that in a RV park. By doing the install this way I saved having to run Coax to each of three locations. I still have the over the air channels on one Coax drop and directtv on the other in each room. What I lost was the ability to connect to the external side of my docking station to satellite and auxiliary so I just capped those two off. It was easier to just have the winegard controller and power inserter in the pass through storage which eliminated the need to run that controller cabling in the wall to the living room slide.

I'm typing this on my phone. If you need more help message me and I can try to explain better.

Remember that each cable has to go to an individual drop from the splitter and unused drops need the resistor installed.

It was simple and aside from having the winegard control box in the coach it was exactly how I wanted it.

I told directtv I needed two more boxes one for my garage and the other for a spare bedroom. They just added those to my home account rather than a separate account for my RV. I just moved them to the RV once the installer left.
