Red,the sat dish on the roof came with my rig so I don't know how hard that part is. As far for finding the sat it is very simple to do. I can usually find the sat in less than a couple of minutes.

I don't know if your manufacturer has the location for a sat. antenna prewired and marked on your roof or not. My last two Winnebago mfg. units were marked and prewired. Other than that, you may need to find out from the builder where to install the antenna. Have you thought of contacting a professional installer? If you buy from some of them they will give youo a deal on instalation and wiring. By the way be sure to get the meter installed that tells you the angle your dish is at. With that meter and a compass all you then need is your zip code and some patience. It gets easier after you get used to it.

I installed a dish and the only time I had any problem setting it up was because of trees in the road. I can usally set it up in about one minute. All you need is to find out the azmuth and elevation. usally I know it takes 18 - 19 cranks up and just turn it till I get a signal and can tweak it in till the signal is strong enough, and that's it.
