Customer Question
I recently purchased a Vu...
I recently purchased a Vu Qube Satellite Dish for use on my 2008 Winnebago View Motorhome. I contacted a local RV dealer and they seemed reluctant to install the unit and stated that if they did attempt the install it would probably cost about $500.00. The list of standard equipment on my View stated that a TV satellite system prep is located in the roof. The Vu Qube satellite antenna attaches to the ladder of the RV and does not require any permanent attachment to the roof. I would like to install the unit myself and would like to know how I access the roof prep system and any other help you might offer concerning this installation. I have purchased the Flex installation system with the dish. Any help would be greatly appreciated. XXXXX XXXXX Missoula,Montana XXX-XXX-XXXX

Go HERE for the various wiring schematics for this series. Some do and some don't. You may have to verify this by giving Winnebago a call at this site HERE. If they prewired this to the roof it shouldn't be too hard. Most coaches have a "patch" or cover on the roof with that marked on it............Get back to me if you need more. R.J.
