    Wired for Roof Satellite and Solar

    Looking at a 310GK. Can you get it pre-wired for a roof top satellite dish and roof top solar panels?

    Hi,

    If this is a unit that was produced after May of 2017, then there is an access panel on the roof to run wiring for the satellite dish.
    There is a plug for the solar panels under the goose neck, not on the roof.

    Is there a way to tell where to mount the satellite dish in relation to the access panel?

    Missy,

    I just bought a Momentum build date of July 25, 2017. I have been up on the roof to inspect (and make sure I could make it up the ladder....LOL) and I don't recall seeing anything that would make me think there is an access panel up there. How do I locate the panel?

    No, there isn't a specific place to mount the satellite. This would be at your discretion.

    There is a plate on the roof located in close proximity to the antenna, if you have one. It's not a very big a plate that would be covered in roof sealant. The satellite access panels are on the Solitude and Momentum lines.

    Ok, thanks. This is a great feature. I actually saw the plate that was covered. I honestly thought that in production a mistake was made and that plate was a repair job to cover the mistake. I apologize for even thinking GD would allow this to pass inspection. Now instead of a new customer scratching his head in disbelief, I am now a true happy camper. I do plan on installing a Winegard Trav'ler in the future.

    Missy, ,you state that it is a panel to run cables. So there is no prewired cables in place, only a place to run the cables through. Correct?

    As of right now we have not heard of a satellite access panel on the new Reflection TT.
