Hi my name is Robert...
Are you not finding the coax on the roof or inside the cabinet?
If it was pre wired it should be with the other one for the front. What you might need to do if you are not seeing this is run the coax on the roof to that second receiver in the rear, you would want to use some plastic clamps every 12" to 24" and then use 1/4" stainless screws and seal them with dicor, punch a hole in the roof going into the cabinet and then use a coax cable plate with stainless screws to cover the coax cable. I understand if you are not up to this idea and I only suggest that because I have installed them like that before, as long as the cable is secured and the screws sealed it should not be an issue at all, I know some customers do not like doing that to the roof.
I might also try and call Newmar and see if they can verify if and where the coax is for the rear, I would think they would be able to verify that info for you. Normally that coax will be coiled up in the styr0foam in the roof near the other coax for the front, it is possible that it did not get run or it is in a different location....
My goal is for you to be satisfied with my efforts IF you want to try another expert on this please let me know... Robert
Hi... Was just checking in to see if my answer helped??? IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me..
It should be there in the insulation but I have seen some strange things over the years where cables do not get run etc.
I see two plates and the SAT up front, the one without the plate did you open that up, how about the rear plate with the cover on it?
Sometimes that cable is loose as well try moving it around from the rear and see if you can at least hear it moving and try and follow the path the best you can.
It would be OK to make the hole bigger I would just pack it full of Dicor before you put the plate on...
Normally in the slide they will be on the bottom with other wires and then run upwards OR they do not go through the slide, into an adjacent cabinet and then to the roof.
Yes I would look to see where that cable is located on the bottom....
No hurry on my end, let me know if you still need more help..
