2016 THOR Hurricane/Windsport 27K owners - satellite TV help?
« on: February 15, 2017, 02:20:04 AM »
I'm sure this topic has been discussed on many threads by now, but my searching efforts have become a bit frustrating.

We have a 2016 27K (on a 2015 chassis). We are going to install a Winegard Trav'ler satellite dish. Thor customer service sent me a roof diagram showing where the factory installed a "backer" for future installation of a satellite dish.

So my question is - is the info I got regarding the backer board from Thor accurate? The placement of this backer is on the passenger side, in the front of the TV antenna. Hubby says the fit is going to be very very tight and he's taking/making precise measurements to be sure the antenna won't interfere with the satellite antenna if both are deployed at the same time.

Has anyone installed a satellite antenna in this location? If so, do you have any suggestions or guidelines for running the cables over to the driver side cabinet where all the boxes/switches reside?
