Hello from Canada

Hi all
I just finnished my first road trip with my new to me 2004 Pace Arrow 37a. A few problems came up and every time I googled a question iRV2 poped up. That being said I thought I would share my questions and the anwers, through the fixes with you.
I never used a fourm so any help with the formating and presenting my theads would be aprecated.
-wind storm beat all the plastic off my slide covers
-water leaks at vents and sky lights
-wandering
-KVH sat not working
Thanks

The antenna is an sf. It starts, will lock on to 82(bell) but not 91 and comes up with sat not available message. Receiver and tv both work with house dish on a tripod. I only get even transponders KVH said bypass the cable, I did no change

Can you hook up a laptop to it. You need to re-program the Sat configurations. I'm surprised KVH did no tell you. I will get the info from my coach tomorrow and post it for you.
your manual is here:

Please see if you can connect a laptop, then download the KVH Flash Wizard software and see if you can communicate with your dish. If you can't communicate you will probably need to call KVH again for help. Ask them about the new sat configurations. (They are SATINSTALL commands).

The connectors on your switch plate are DB9 and RJ11 (technically RJ8) which they are the same as on the R5sl. Please see this thread for documentation on cables etc.

Hi, lots of info on the cables you need if you hit the link mentioned in post 5 above. All the instructions are there too. You can't move the thread, only the admins can. You can post adtl results or questions here or start a new one, it's up to you. Good luck!
