I believe this statement is opposite of the actual set-up. The cable tuner is built-in each TV.

The 29H Outlaw wiring is set-up for cable TV. There's no dedicated SAT prep lines (raw SAT from the antenna to the receiver).

All a SAT system needs is a coax from the antenna to the receiver. Once the raw SAT signal gets from the antenna (rooftop or portable) to the receiver, the signal is exactly like a DVD player...select the correct channel/input and watch.

The cable TV jack on the exterior can be used for a portable SAT antenna, but the interior end must be connected to the SAT Receiver - BEFORE the line joins the broadcast TV wiring (with signal amp). This can be done by moving wire ends - or with an "A"-"B" switch - or by adding a diplexer at both ends to combine, then split the signals on the single coax.

Best luck

Anyone who has run an HDMI cable from the rear garage area to the outside TV, of your 29h can you give me a brief synopsis and how difficult it was? Thanks

That is an easy one...the lock on the gas cap/door invites fuel theives to cut a fuel line or simply puncture the tank.
This reason is why many people do not recommend adding locking gas caps. One partial tank of gas (siphoning rarely empties the tank) is much less $$ over vandalism repairs.

The lock on the wet bay secures your dumping gear...thieves are not interested in what is in your tank.

Safe travels

Ok, here's another thing to put on the "TO DO" list ASAP.

Alignment.

Yes, I found out the hard way that our cutaway chassis is aligned when it comes off assembly at Ford.

It is NOT aligned when THOR completes the build out. The TOW was way out on my unit, caused my Michelins to be trashed within 15,000 miles, and poor handling.

I asked my RV dealer about this, and they played dumb saying they "don't do alignments" it's up to Ford.

Took the Outlaw to the Ford Commercial Truck Service Center got the alignment ($255.00) bought 2 new Michelins from Tire Rack ($436.00) Mount and balance another ($72.00)

A costly and unnecessary repair had THOR done their job and aligned the unit when it came out of their factory.

If your still under warranty insist "THOR" pay for an alignment. If not get the alinement done before your tires are trashed.
