Need help Challenger 37KT satellite installation

If you have 37KT - would you please measure location of coax roof entry plate or decal on roof. Thor says there should be a decal on the roof and there is not one. They sent drawing showing location of antenna as being on roof centerline and behind kitchen vent.

I don't have a Challenger....but...

Thor puts the decal under a false rooftop vent cap to mark the end of the SAT Prep cables inside the roof.
If you take the top cap off the vent that is -not- above the bath area (probably the forward most cap) the decal is clearly readable.

The kitchen probably doesn't have a separate rooftop vent...the vent lines can be combined into the one for the waste tanks. Thor uses airgap/anti-siphon vents under the sinks instead of going all the way to the roof like is usual in a studs and stucco house.

Warning - If you are having a shop do the antenna install, you should ask about the cabling...my installer did not use the factory wire-set. They ran a new line forward to/and under the edge of the front cap. Not the way I would have had it done....but it works and was guarenteed as being "high quality" parts. Seems they did not want to cut the roof to get to the factory wires.

Best luck
