RF Mogul on an Entegra :-(

No way to put one up without drilling lots of holes and having wiring hanging down from the ceiling. This is because the TV is on a slide (in a 44B) and you can't pull the existing Traveler wires because it is all in the basement and routes around stuff ... so can't just attach the new coax and pull. I'm having to send my Mogul back and will have to purchase another Traveler instead.

Sorry about that. You can use the same coax from the roof to the controller but you still need to run the new control wire. The Traveler to RF Mogul swap was easy with our front mounted TV. Installer ran new coax and control cable but used existing hole in roof.

Just a thought. I contacted RFMogul about an antenna in my 44B. I am still considering it. I recently ran a new RG-6 cable and a Cat-6 cable into my fireplace area on my 44B and can tell you how the cables run. It is possible. After discussion with RFMogul I determined the control cable would be the hard part. The previous RG-6 cable can be re-used.

Here is something you might consider. Why not install the control box elsewhere? Having run these cables before here is my recommendation. Install the control box in the front passenger over windshield cabinet. I got the idea from several older RVs. The cable run to the Satellite antenna is only about 8 feet into the cap. There is conveniently a 110v plug there. Then run the RG-6 cable to mid basement (near the water pump ) and connect to the existing cable to the old SAT dish and the run to the entertainment center if needed.

PM me and I'll furnish my phone number and I can describe.

Dave ... thank you very much for the offer. Unfortunately, I had already sent the Mogul back to Utah. I've ordered another Winegard Traveler, so hopefully this one will work, it will be installed next week. When it's warranty is over in two years, I might have to revisit this if it is like all the other traveler dishes I have had......... Keep us posted if you do get a Mogul and install it. Thanks again, Lynn

I also agree. We had one on our Monaco and it worked perfectly, seemed solid, and had excellent support from the manufacturer.

So far my OEM MotoSat HD dish w/RF Mogul controller is working fine but if the dish quits (and it will) I'll just get the new top end and reprogram the Eagle controller.
