Thanks everybody for the responses. After further examination the crack wasn’t as bad as I thought. A little fiberglass work on the inside and it looks as good as new We’ll see how the signal reception is and go from there...after the snow is gone and I take it out of the garage

The fiberglass patch will have no to minimal impact on the signal strength received by the LNB as fiberglass wind/snow/bird domes are common on terrestrial microwave antennas.

I am removing KVH dome as well. We have never used it so I'm not sure what model it is, but I bought the Travler for Dish based on all of the positive reviews here. I have Dish at home and wanted to stay with the same.

I just pulled my dome off. It is an L3. Let me know if you need it.

Sky. That’s the one. If you are going to scrap it I’ll take it. If you are going to try and sell the system, I wouldn’t want to break up a complete unit. Mine will be fine with my fiberglass magic !

I have no idea if it has any value. I don't even know if it worked.

I see no others anywhere listed so mine will go in the trash unless someone wants it for the price of shipping.

Default Replacing SD Dome

Okay the time has come to replace the SD satelite dome with a HD receiver and antenna. Purchased the Traveler for dish. Appears that I can use the existing coax but the control cable is different.

To those that have done this upgrade what is the best process. I have located the control cable in question in the front behind the TV and have the end on the roof.

Also how did your mount the traveler on the roof?

Thanks in advance for all help.

I also mounted a Traveler - Dish.


I re-used the existing Coax cables, and wanted to run the new control cable along the same route inside along the roof, but I was going to have to remove the interior roof panels to do it. I was prepared to do just that but hit an impediment with the panels that extend under the trim.

I didn't know exactly how I was going to do that and since we where living in the bus, I didn't have time or the space to dismantle everything for an extended period of time.

With that said, I ran the control cable along the same route as the over the air antenna, except I brought the cable in to the cap on the driver's side, so that it came into the entertainment compartment. I bored a hole and used a cable clam just like BB did for the other cables that go through the roof. I can take a picture if you like but it might take a day or two.


I intend to re-route the cable some day, after I get moved in to the new old house and get the new bus barn built.


I mounted the dish with 3M VHB tape and Sikaflex 221. I didn't use any screws. I figured there are enough holes in the roof as it is.
