Cool Satellite Receiver install in airstream

I was tasked with adding a direct Tv sat receiver. Airstream service dept didn't have the way the radio shelf was made for my 20' Bambi. So I started the task of the install my self. At first I thought it would be easy but after looking at the shelf construction I see why airstream has great quality. I had to remove the whole cabinet & the radio above the dinette plus the blinds and aluminium guards. This was to disassemble the whole unit with out hurting or breaking anything. Airstream does not glue anything its all screwed together and doweled for a very strong fitted structure. So 5 hours later I measured the receiver and stacked the DVD player on top of the receive. It looks very nice & clean look just like the factory. If any one knows is there a coax wire for a roof mount dish installed or do I need to fish one my self.

Thank Chrome

Not sure on your model. On our 2017 Classic there was a direct wire one can tie in a roof top sat antenna. We put the Dish Traveler up on top. You might try calling your dealer OR better and easier call Airstream factory customer service and ask them. Plus if you do have direct access it should be mentioned in your owners manual.

IF not you can do what we did on a previous AS is run the wire down from the top into the refrigerator compartment and then out the wall to the TV. But again, not sure of your layout, our previous was a 30 FC and the refrigerator was on the wall the TV was on, so very easy.
