Hi John

I have a series of photographs somewhere I took when we fitted mine. It really is an easy job and the dish is just so easy to use. We arrived on site today at 1402hrs and Jessica was watching Babyfirst by 1404hrs :roflmto:

If you want I can email the pics to you

i can provide the holecutter and drills and electric drill to save you buying anything

just post a list of the things needed in the instructions and i can make sure i bring everything along, i have all the bits necessary from when i did mine but just need reminding on the list.

you need a special electric drill with a large chuck as the hole saw is quite a large fitting for the chuck

when you get the instructions have a careful think about the sweep of the dish and where you want it positioned in the motorhome for ease of use and it will not be obstructed by anything on the roof

i am happy to help, :Smile:

Wished I had it for my French trip in early September.

Never had any problems with a tripod and dish while caravaning but with the RV cannot see the TV to turn it in with a tripod:frowny:

Hi John
I think you can count on Geo and I helping out to mate, Geo fitted one a while ago on his RV and I want to watch Hugh drinking and drilling at the same time :roflmto:
Easy job mate, just make sure there is plenty of refreshments for the workers mate ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

I might bring a crankup in a box as well then, we can have a fitting party, I'll go last after everyones learned by their mistakes:RollEyes:

No.. I'll go first before you've got drunk:eek:

Any suggestions where I will get one? and don't anyone say Outdoor Bits:Tongue:
