Yes, in fact trying to make it all fit the HDMI cable became disabled. So after about 3k I have a new HD sat dish, receiver and the clients all wired to the Sat receiver which is now above the main TV.

Our DVD player has never worked...sound but no picture...the techs at Camping World believe the HDMI cable is bad...most likely somebody at the factory put a nail through it during construction...they will replace next week when they put the new roof on...

On a different note our power steps have started popping on fully retraction and full extension. They still work just pop really loudly at both ends of their cycle.
My steps started making sounds like that until the pin though the cam that retracts and extends fell out. My step gear is made by Lippert who probably have some good ideas but all their stuff is made in China. I replaced the pivot pin and sealed the treads with Locktite red which is what the manual said. There was minimal evidence of Locltite blue with the pin that fell out. So far so good.

Did you have a bomb (box of many buttons) installed? Thats what I have...I can watch all three TVs via sat/air/cable... But with the Dish Tailgater I have to watch the same channel on all TVs when I am using sat TV...

No, I had the DirecTV Genie installed can watch any channel on any tv. The downside is that only main TV gets DVD from the main DVD player.

The map lights in my 2011 / 3772 are the proverbial PITA. They snag when swinging the seats around and when the night shades are drawn down. Does anyone have a suggestion for replacing them. In the same vein the coach is a bit short on overhead cab lighting for sitting in the front seats when watching TV. Has anyone done anything creative in this area

That sounds like a blast...College Football! We are still waiting for our coach to be finished...THOR authorized a complete new roof install...the leaks came from a couple of spots where our awnings are attached...the plywood underneath the TPO was wet with a small area of rot...all replaced. I have pics of the process but they are quite large files...not sure if I can upload them...anyway CW Statesville is doing a really good job...which includes repainting all along the sides of the coach where the TPO folds over the sides...should be ready in another week!

Jim,

Glad to hear Thor has been so good to work with.

We just got Thor back from the shop from repairing the damage caused from a forced off road detour in AZ back in June. The front and back caps bottomed out while being routed around a fatal accident. This cause numerous stress cracks in both caps. So, it was a lengthy and expensive repair.

Bear,

I bet that was exciting and white knuckles!

There are multiple points on our roof where the awning attaches...I wanted everybody to check theirs out...for soft spots...you most likely will not see a leak...but the roof will fell a little soft...check the Dicor lap compound really well and make sure there are no cracks in it!

I wish our awnings were on the slide...

Oh well...have fun tail gating!
