My coach's satellite switch is deeply hidden far back in the top left overhead on the ceiling..I am 6'4" and have to strain to touch the switch OR see the light....ridiculous placement. I went to my local RV repair shop to relocate it to the roof of the next compartment over...After the tech cut out the square hole in the foam, etc, he ran into a LARGE aluminum supportive crosspiece right where the hole was just cut So he made a pretty white plastic cover for that hole and we located the switch on the compartment wall that seperates the 2 overheads..easy to see and get to now..and the cables coming out the back are hardly noticable...great improvement!!

Good fix Larry. On my last coach I just cut the positive supply and remotely switched it leaving the main switch in the "on" position continuously. It worked well too.

Larry, the first thing i did was replace the standard satellite with the new R6 in motion. NO SWITCH to search for the correct satellite. My dealer worked with me on price. Best thing I ever did. I used to spend 30 minutes plus trying to find the correct satellite.
