Second Television in 25 Safari SE FB

Can anyone share their experiences with a bedroom TV in a Safari 25 FB?
If you have one, did the dealer install it or did you do it yourself?

Also, if you have a satellite receiver, where have you placed it? The line-in seems to be in a strange spot (under the dinette table).

Thanks for any information and my apologies if I've started a duplicate thread.

Are you talking about installing a television that operates on cable, satellite, or rabbit ears?

Our second TV was dealer installed as the cable needed to be routed behind the refer and shower stall. I use a Dish Network box with a dealer installed King Dome. This is a box used in the shop so it is always activated. I put in in the upper left cabinet over the dinette with the CD box and Serius radio. There is a switching box to go from park cable to Dish Network. With park cable different programs can be seen on each set. Same program on both sets with Dish Network box

The FB set was originally installed directly on the wall and was a disaster. If you look carefully, you can see where the dealer mounted it by the thermostat. I used a piece of oak with short #12 wood screws and glue to spread the load. The TV mount uses 1/4 X 20 bolts and T-nuts. No problems after two years with this setup.

The local Dish Network/Direct TV dealer does a lot of RV installations. After having some work done by the local stereo installers, I wouldn't hesitate to use them for Airstream work.

Don't drill through the bulkhead into the shower stall!!!

Our 25FB was pre wired. I used the same arm setup that was in the front, it works fine. My question to you would be, what is the best satelite antana to instal for a Dish service. I have done some reserch but am still in the dark.

Hyperion asked "if you have a satellite receiver, where have you placed it? The line-in seems to be in a strange spot (under the dinette table)?"

We use a portable dish on a tripod and run it to the satellite receiver that is stored in a water resistent "Rubbermaid Actionpacker" and run a cable from there to the TV cable input located in the rear bumper storage box. The Actionpacker is stored under the trailer. We are able to use the remote and don't have the satellite receiver in the inside of the trailer under foot. Additionly the Actionpacker serves as the storage container for our satellite gear, such as cables. The only drawback is that both TVs get the same channel. That is not a problem for us as rarely do we want to watch two different programs at the same time.
