Jul. 05, 2021

For modern young people, RVs are no longer strange. Many young people like to travel in an RV. As the name implies, an RV is a house-like vehicle with the functions of a house, such as watching TV, or to watching TV. The idea is to install a car satellite dish, so how to install a car satellite dish in the RV? This Satellite Dish Supplier will share with you.

The steps to install car satellite antenna in RV are as follows:

1.Install the indoor equipment and wiring harness into the compartment of the RV closet. Add a baffle after installation, it will not affect the closet storage anymore.

2. The control handle is connected to the black drive box slot via a white harness similar to a telephone line. The drive box is primarily used to control the outdoor antenna, providing the user with an interactive human-machine interface and providing antenna-related settings and controls. Waiting for orders. Satellite information can be clearly seen from the blue screen on the control handle.

3. The drive box is used to control the motor of the outdoor antenna and execute the control commands. The drive box itself also needs electricity to work. At the interface of the drive box, a wiring harness composed of red, yellow and black is connected to the 12V car battery on the RV to ensure the normal work of the drive box.

4.The drive box and the external antenna are connected by a thicker black harness. The harness has two interfaces. The thicker end interface is connected to the drive box. It is mainly used to execute the operation command of the control handle and transmit it to the outside. The external antenna can be used to search for satellites only if the antenna is installed.

After finding the satellite information, the TV signal we need is transmitted to the drive box through the coaxial cable, and the drive box performs the information integration process. There is also an ordinary single-pin antenna at the output port of the driver box, which is used to input the signal into the inside of the set-top box device.

5.The TV signal output from the driver box is transmitted to the TV set-top box, and the red, yellow and white wire harness of the set-top box is connected to the RF port of the TV set, so that a completed indoor wiring installation.

6.The indoor wiring harness needs to be connected to the outdoor antenna in order to work properly, so we need to drill holes in the roof.

7.After the drilling is completed, the indoor wiring harness will be led to the roof through the hole. Since the roof has been opened, the remaining holes and gaps should be sealed after the antenna installation is completed to prevent water leakage.

8.The Outdoor Antenna will be equipped with a metal base. The base must be fixed to the roof before installation, and the surface where the base touches the roof is coated with sealant to be bonded to the roof. Wait a few moments until the contact surface of the base is completely fixed to the roof.

9.The wiring harness is connected to the outdoor antenna. After the satellite antenna is fixed on the base, with the outdoor antenna has been installed.

10.Finally there is a debugging process. After the power is turned on, the system will check the antenna automatically. After the automatic check, the word POWER OFF will appear on the screen. Press POWER ON once, the antenna will automatically search for the last searched satellite. The system will continue searching until the satellite signal is locked. After locking, the system will search for the maximum value of the target satellite, and this process lasts about 20 seconds.

The following points should be noted when installing:

①The installation location should be in a relatively open location, such as the roof of a car, and make sure that there are no obstacles that may hinder the rotation of the antenna within a one-meter radius area centered on the antenna base.

②Before power on, make sure there is no obstacle blocking the signal in the direction of the target satellite.

③After confirming the above two items, you can connect the hardware.

We hope the above sharing is helpful to you. Besides, the company also provides TV Satellite Antenna. If you need it, please feel free to contact us.
