2017Vegas Sat install

HELP!!!! I have a 2017 Vegas and I have already purchased a Winegard T4 inmotion satallite with 2 Direct TV receivers from the internet. I need to install it myself. The local dealer wants me to return all purchases and repurchase through him, greedy little *******. Has anyone installed this by themselves and if so could you help me out? The Vegas roof plan wants me to install just infront of digital antenna. Winegard would like it mounted on RV roof center line. Ahah. I also need Wiring instructions for the inside. I would like if possible to use the digital antenna or inmotion sat or RV Park cable if I want to. I have 2 receivers, one for TV above door, one for TV in back. I need to wire the 3rd TV (outside) hopefuly to the TV above door, again if possible. As far as securing the sat to the roof, I have been told to use 3M 5200 quick set. Is this correct for the type of roofing on the Vegas? HELP!!

No offense, sounds like you bit off more than you can chew. Sounds like you need a better set of instructions, check you-tube and see if there are any videos on how to do this.

Mount the dish where indicated by the Vegas roof plan, that will be the strongest area and the dish doesn't care if it's on the centerline or not. You can run the wiring from the dish in the same place as your antenna. For sealer you can use the 3M 5200.

Sorry but I can't provide any more help than that. Best of luck with your install.

Thank You SuperD for your input. A couple of questions answered is a good thing and yes I do have a problem with shooting first and asking questions later. How else would I end up owning an RV. Thank Again.

There are two very different systems used by DirectV - legacy and SWM. We need to know the type of receivers you have. The receiver's type will start with a H followed by two numbers - like H-24. The type of system you have will determine the wiring needed.
