Rather than tearing things apart looking for it I thought someone might know where they will have put those and have simple instructions on getting access to remove those two things and simply connect the coax from the dish on the roof to the coax that connects out to my receiver. I have a 2015 Adventurer 35P. Thanks for your help!!!
Because my internet at this location is SOOO slow I hope I am not repeating what you have been told. Try this diagram: TV/DVD WIRING 184625-03-000

Hope it helps.

You would not believe all of the BS I got when we ordered our coach over the Sat Antenna I found out if the salesmen didn't know he just made stuff up. They really wanted to sell me the antenna and then install it at twice what Winnebago wanted for the factory install.
Good for us I have a friend at Winnebago that help keep things straight.
As I recall we installed on the input side of the satellite receiver per the instructions enclosed. I'll have to check to be sure when we pick it up hopefully tomorrow. I installed it in about June of last year. It was one of a million other things I did in a hurry getting ready for our trip to Alaska. It worked fine so I didn't pay any further attention to it.

Have the OTA adapter to bring digital ita channels in through the Dish receiver but ran out of time to get it set up and tested. Fingers crossed!

We got the motorhome in the drive today so I verified the location of the SWM splitter. I was correct as to the installation location. There's a little sticker on the input jack of the satellite receiver labeled "satellite in - SWM $%@#**. I couldn't read the last word without standing on my head. I tried it a couple times but passed out both times, so the last word is still unknown.

Hikerdogs, sometime when you are really bored you might check in the front right side behind the panel and see if there is one there.

I took a look behind the panel as you suggested. All the cables are there and marked like you said. Unfortunately there was no SWM splitter. Our system works fine now, but in the future I may move the splitter to this location.

Our entertainment center is just to the rear of the entry door. It's full of cables, wires, and other hardware. The optical sensors were never mounted from the factory. They're just setting in there in a pile. I may remove them since everything works and I could use the room for other things.

I'll have to read up on them to see if they're really necessary. We spend so little time watching TV and listening to music it's hard to remember how all the components interact. It's seems like we have quite a pile of "junk' just to watch a little television.
