One more photo from the side. This shows how thick the plate can get at the lowest point of the roof.

That splitter was removed and the two cables were connected to the SWM splitter. The Sattleite input side went to the living room and also to another drop in the basement via a splitter. That was removed and those two drops were connected to the SWM splitter. So essentially all four drops now have a direct connection to the SWM splitter. (Sorry if thats confusing). The Cable input on the docking station still goes to the amplifier panel that is used for cable/ota signals
Were the splitters SWM already that were installed at the living room, if so I can just take the drops from the docking station and install those to the splitter that came with the Travler right?

Did you install yours yet? Mine is in the driveway, waiting on the lap sealant to come in tomorrow and I'm wanting to see which side of the bathroom vent you ran your cable. I noticed our vents are different on the 377.

Correct, the existing drops were just disconnected from the dock and connected to the SWM splitter.

I disconnected only the 'Sat' coax from the dock and connected it to the SWM splitter and left the cable and the Aux connected. I put a DVR in the living room and the bedroom and have nothing at either one. Has anyone got a wiring diagram of these cables to see where and how they are split? The Travler found all three satellites, I changed the settings on the receivers, and nothing. I'm going to disassemble the belly again tomorrow and hook up the aux to the provided SWM splitter as well. Then I guess go buy some new coax cables maybe?

Sat goes to the living room. Aux goes to the Master Bedroom on my 355.

The guy who did my install used a device like this:

Klein Tools VDV Coaxial Explorer Plus Tester-VDV512-058 - The Home Depot

To map out where all the cables went.
