What are the other 6 satellite coax cables for?

I had Tiffin do a factory install of the satellite dish cabling and the dish for a Winegard Trav'ler 1000. I went to set it up to use it after over a year with the coach and determined that there are 7 coax cables in the media cabinet in the bedroom. After some trial and error I determined that the cable labeled 'Travler #2 DVR' is the one that has to be connected to the Dish Wally receiver.
My curiosity question is what are the other 6 for? They are labeled as follows:
Traveler #1 DVR
Traveler #1 P165
Traveler #2 P165
Sat #2 P165
Tripod P165 (I assume this connects to the tripod coax cable in the wet bay)
and one with no label at all

Any insight on what these cables are each used for?

Thanks Ed

I think the best thing, while you're still just one model year from new, is to just call Tiffin and talk to the shop guys.

Also, there is a Tiffin Forum (Tiffin RV Network) where you might have a more concentrated audience for your post as well.

I can't tell you for certain, but I'm pretty sure that the 3 that are labeled travler as well as the un-named one go the the pie plate where your Travler is located. The Sat#2 goes to the pie plate on the left side near the front of the coach where the dome antenna could be located. Another cable from that pie plate goes to the left fwd cabinet above the steering wheel.

Mine has in in motion Sat. It has 2 coax cables, unless you install a second receiver the second cable is not used.

A third coax is for a tripod mounted unit.

A fourth coax comes from the over the air antenna.

I not sure about the Travlar unit but I would guess it also has 2 coax cables which gets you to 6 total.

The unlabeled one is probably Sat #1. That and Sat #2 are for an in motion dome which they pretty much install on every coach. I had the Trav'ler prewire done on ours and they installed the wiring for a dome as well. You will find a 10" round white "mushroom" on the roof at the front of the coach that's for the dome.

I actually use Trav'ler #1 P165 for one Wally and #2 for the second.

You are correct, the Tripod coax is from the wet bay connection.

The DVR connections go to the Trav'ler and I assume they are for a TIVO like device but have never used or researched them.
