Has anyone here ever done that? If so, what sort of problems did you experience?
It depends on what kind of antenna the coach is pre wired for. If it's for an automatic dome antenna, the installation should be simple. Hook up two coax cables, a power wire, screw it down, use sealant on the screws and you are done.
If it's pre wired for a Trav'ler, the process is a lot the same except the Trav'ler weighs about 50 pounds and has to be positioned where there is backing for it.
I have done both types and it's not a major job if you are handy. A second person for the Trav'ler is almost a necessity, but the dome type is a one person job. The Trav'ler will have a six conductor power wire where the dome will just be a two conductor.
