I finally got the dish installed tonight as well as the wiring for Sharp 26" LCD TV combination DVD/CD and it just fits into the TV shelf in the LE.

I don't plan on keeping the TV up there when we're on the road. I'll probably put if face down on the bed.

The dish is a WINEGARD RV DIGITAL SATELLITE SYSTEM WITH DIGITAL ELEVATION SENSOR

Also, hung that pesky accessory shelving under the TV cabinet as a nice place for the satellite receiver.

I can run it all through the 1500 watt inverter or 110V

Nope, as I said in the posting, I don't plan on leaving it there when the WW is tavelling. I also wanted the option of moving the TV down to the cocktail table, which I move next to the door.

Finally, I also want to be able to move the TV outside if there is a need.

I also decided to put in a outlet box from my inverter so I can run all from the batteries. Now I have (2) circuits going to toyhauler

I scabbed a piece of the carpet to wrap around the metal outlet box from under one of the bedroom vanity draws. :B

Nice work! We just installed the same dish and we like it. I have been searching all over for an under cabinet shelf like you have. Where did you get it, or did it come with the '06 models? I have and '05 model that does not have the TV cabinet like yours.

Good deal there buddy! I like that TV...I was at WallyWorld today and was looking at it. But I think I want to try to get a dropdown mount and put it above the first set of steps to the bathroom- the angle of that TV shelf (and especially the little piece that sticks out) just doesn't give a good viewing angle. It's either that, or a roll-out mount so it can be turned enough.

Hi Tyler...... It came with the O6 models. It was kinda goofy, because it was unattached and inside the upper cabinets. I'll bet a bunch of them where thrown away because they took up cabinet space.
