Winegard sk-3005 - X-Aire Wiring

I have a 2008 X-Aire and have ordered a Winegard SK-3005 Dish. Looking at the antenna wiring, little confusing. Has anyone installed one of these in their X-Aire?? I will go on roof today and uncover sealed box that has pre-wire for power. I don't think the coax is pulled. I can't find anything on Newmar's wiring on this unit.. Any advice/information will be welcomed...

I removed the cover plate on the roof yesterday and to my surprise, there were two coaxs ran. One to the entertainment center and the other to the bedroom. Also a power wire through plastic conduit to the bedroom. Looks like Newmar did their homework on pre-wiring. I was concerned about mounting on the sloped part of the roof but looks like it is about 4 1/2 degrees. Winegard's site says that is ok...
thanks for the input.....

Thats great to know. Many that say they are prewired, you have to fish for them, and for allthe time you are looking for them you could have just as easily run new ones. One suggestion would be if you have a conduit, run the other two coax from Winegard, that way you are wired for the future if you want to put a DVR or run for additional TV's, you only have the roof open once. If you have additonal question dont hesitate to ask, I will try to help. As far as you roof degrees go, you should be fine, I do beleive they are making a wedage asl to assist with this. I know when I had winegard here testing, they put the slimline through many differnt angles to make sure it would lock on to a signal, and iit did every time. Good luck with your install I am sure you will be very pleased.
