SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION The King-Dome Automatic Satellite System includes 2 main components (Fig. 1). Dome (Antenna) Unit Located on the roof of the vehicle. The dish is covered by a protective dome that keeps operational components free from the elements. Located in the vehicle. Activates the search mode and provides limited diagnostic functions using the status light. Controller Note: A TV, satellite receiver, and program subscription are also required for satellite TV viewing. (Not supplied by King Controls.)

SECTION 2 DEFINITION OF TERMS AZIMUTH: Circular rotation around the vehicle. (like a clock face: front of vehicle is 12:00, rear is 6:00) (Fig. 2) Fig. 2 ELEVATION: Angle in degrees measured from the ground plane (Fig. 3). Fig. 3 SIGNAL STRENGTH: Intensity of electronic signal received from the satellite transmission. Page 3

SECTION 3 INSTALLATION TOOLS AND MATERIALS REQUIRED: - - - - - - - drill and drill bit set tape measure 7/16” open end wrench (coax connections) adhesive sealant (compatible with roof material) appropriate fasteners to install all components and wiring 5/32” allen wrench, channel lock or pliers (to remove shipping bolt) wire cutter (to remove shipping tie strap) KIT CONTENTS: 1. Unpack and identify all components (Fig. 4). KIT CONTENTS Fig. 4 King Dome Operating Instructions 1. Turn tv and satellite receiver on. The tv screen should display “searching for satellite signal” or “Acquiring satellite signal. IMPORTANT Do not use the tv or receiver controls until you have found a satellite. 2. Press and hold the king dome switch to on/search for a full 4 seconds. 3. wait for status light to turn stead green. 4. turn to a satellite channel that you normally watch. Is there a picture? SWITCH SATELLITE questions? refer to owner’s manual ON/SEARCH POWER STATUS STATUS ON / SEARCH OFF OFF KING-DOME Optional Wall Mount Controller Page 4

IMPORTANT! The tie strap and spacer, and the bolt and washer must be removed from the bottom of the dome unit prior to installation. DO NOT REMOVE THE DOME COVER TO REMOVE THESE SHIPPING RESTRAINTS. YOU MUST PLUG THE SHIPPING BOLT HOLE WITH THE SUPPLIED PLUG. 2. Remove and discard the tie strap and spacer, and the bolt and washer that pass through the bottom of the base (Fig. 5). 3. Insert provided plug into hole that was occupied by the shipping bolt (Fig. 5). Fig. 5 IMPORTANT! After removing shipping bolt, firmly insert plug into hole. Plug should be almost flush with base. IMPORTANT! Remove and discard Tie Strap and Plastic Spacer prior to installation. IMPORTANT! Remove and discard Bolt and Washer prior to installation. Page 5

DOME LOCATION 4. Select an area on the roof for the dome unit and the location where the wiring will enter the vehicle through the roof to the satellite receiver, controller, and 12 volt power source inside, using the following criteria: a) The shortest distance between the dome unit and the satellite receiver is most desirable. b) The dome unit requires a 28 inch diameter mounting area. c) The dome unit should be mounted on the centerline of the vehicle. d) There must be no “line of sight” obstructions. Air conditioning units, other antennas, and storage areas that are too close to the dome unit may prevent the satellite signal from reaching the dish (Fig. 6). Fig.6 HEIGHT OF OBSTRUCTION 10” 11” 12” 13” 14” 15” 16” APPROXIMATE MINIMUM DISTANCE TO DOME EDGE 8” 10” 12” 14” 16” 18” 20” IMPORTANT! For installations on trucks with air shields, a bracket must be used for mounting the dome unit. The dome unit MUST be mounted to the air ride cab: NEVER to any structure mounted directly to the frame. See bracket instructions for proper installation (Fig. 7). Page 6

Fig. 7 Example of truck installation using bracket. See bracket instructions for proper installation. IMPORTANT! The dome unit MUST be mounted to the air ride cab: NEVER to any structure mounted directly to the frame. DOME INSTALLATION IMPORTANT! Make sure shipping restraints are removed from bottom of dome unit (Fig. 5, Page 5). Cable connections must ALWAYS be positioned facing the rear of vehicle. 5. Place dome unit on installation location chosen using the criteria discussed in the previous section. Shipping restraints must be removed (Fig. 5, Page 5), and cable connections must be positioned facing rear of vehicle. 6. The dome unit must be positioned so that both feet on each side of the vehicle are equal distances from the roof edge. This should be checked by measuring the distance from each feet to the roof edge. Confirm that these measurements are equal (Fig. 8). Fig. 8 IMPORTANT! The dome should never be mounted so that it is tilted more than two degrees in any direction. Page 7

Note: The installer is responsible for determining the most appropriate fastener to secure the dome to the roof. Depending on the roof material, fasteners such as lag screws, well nuts, sheet metal screws, toggle bolts and T anchors may be used, and should always be used in combination with a roof compatible sealant. IMPORTANT! The installer is responsible for weatherproofing all holes with sealant. 7. Mount the dome unit. Use the pre-drilled holes in the mounting feet as a guide to install the fasteners into the roof. Use additional fasteners whenever necessary. 8. Test that the dome unit is secure by pulling upward from each foot location. EXTERNAL WIRING 9. Plug external wire harness into wiring port on back of dome unit and tighten connection until it clicks past the detent lock (Fig. 9). Note: The King-Dome is wired for a dual LNB. There are two coaxial ports on the back of the dome unit. The one labeled “MAIN” MUST be connected to the main receiver in vehicle. The one labeled “AUX” can be used for an additional receiver. 10. Connect 35’ coax cable to coax port labeled MAIN on back of dome unit and tighten connection. If using a second receiver, connect second 35’ coax cable to coax port labeled AUX and tighten connection. Do not over tighten coax connections (Fig. 9). Fig. 9 IMPORTANT! The alignment tabs on the wiring port and the external wire harness plug must match up when engaging plug onto port. YOU MUST TIGHTEN THE PLUG UNTIL IT CLICKS PAST THE DETENT LOCK. (A channel lock pliers may be used to tighten the connection.) IMPORTANT! Coax connections should be snug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! Page 8

11. Run wires from the back of the dome unit to the roof edge, then along edge to location where wiring will be fed into the vehicle. (If installing an optional second receiver, run auxiliary coax to location where it will enter the vehicle.) Secure wiring to roof every 12- 18 inches (Fig. 10). 12. Drill 5/8” hole through the roof and into the cabinet where receiver is stored. Feed wiring down through hole. Seal opening with roof compatible sealant so that it is entirely waterproof (inside and outside of the 5/8” hole). Repeat for optional second receiver (Fig. 10). TYPICAL ROOF INSTALLATION - OVERHEAD VIEW Fig. 10 IMPORTANT! Sealant must be roof compatible. 13. Remove blue protective sheet and red “position to rear” sticker from the dome unit. Page 9
