2006 Fleetwood Expedition Sat Dish Question

We recently purchased a 2006 Fleetwood Expedition that has a TracVision SF satellite antenna, and my question is this: does anyone know where the antenna switchplate/power button are located?

I've peered into the over-dash entertainment center area, but I'll be darned if I can see it. I found the coax coming down from the dish, but that's it. I'm asking here in hopes that I don't have to start taking stuff apart to find the little bugger...

Thanks!
Mike

I have a 2008 bounder with the same system and the switch is in the cabinet above the drivers seat towards the back of the cabinet. Hope this helps.

Thanks! I looked in there, but I must be missing it somehow. When I get back to it at the storage place in a day or so I'll take a closer look and hopefully find the silly thing!

In our Discovery, it is in the driver's overhead cabinet..BUT...it's on the left side, not in the back. The switch blends into the cabinet wall, difficult to see, and may be hidden by the componets.

Just thought I'd post an update/conclusion on this silly switch hunt! It turned out to be right where you indicated, and the reason I couldn't find it was that the previous owner had set a shelf in the cabinet right over the switch panel, completely covering it up!

I finally found it when I had a few free hours to hang out in the RV and just poke around, and decided to just tear everything apart in front until I found the switch. Fortunately, I started in that cabinet, and as soon as I lifted out the shelf - voila! - there it was.

Now I just have to get the dish (TracVision SF) to work!
