Satellite Dish

Can someone tell me if the Pinnacle is prewired for roof satellite? In the process of purchasing a 2011 and I am wondering if Jayco provided this during manufacturing? My 2004 Designer was prewired.

Thanks! Dave A

Jayco will send you a wiring schematic if you request one.

I've got a call into JAYCO about a 2015, but from what I understand "NO"..

Cool

I appreciate the response back. Guess I will have to stick with the portable one? Thanks again for the help!

I know some dealers will phish a cable through the roof to install a roof unit.

That's easy. Get an 18" round dish and tripod. Take one of your receivers from home and you're ready to go for next to nothing.

X2...... the only issue will be when you get outside you "home" viewing area you lose your local channels.ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. Also if you have all HD boxes you need to reprogram the box for the 18" dish.

Once I went with HD I couldn't go back to SD so I have a Slimline dish. Look around for someone that is moving. DirecTV says to take your receiver when you move and leave the dish so ask the people moving if you can get their dish since DirecTV most always installs a new dish for the new owners anyway. You could also look aroun for a DirecTV truck and see if the driver has one he would give you or for a small price. I have a tripod system from tv4rv.com and it makes setting up very easy. The quality is excellent and I have had mine for 4 years and I use it full time.

I have DirecTV's DNS service primarily so I don't have to reprogram my DVR's for different channels when I move. The programming is always right and worth the extra monthly cost to me.

Our 2011 Pinnacle was not prewired for a Satellite on the roof
