Rear TV hook up

Just bought a 2017 Hampton 380 FD. On our old unit (2012 Wildwood 402 QBQ) we hooked up TV in main living area with Satellite. In our bedroom we simply hooked up that TV with regular cable wire and were able to watch satellite programs but the same as what was on in main living area.
In the new unit, we have hooked up the satellite and hooked up regular cable to tv in bedroom but no picture. Does anyone know how we get the satellite feed to TV in bedroom?

Did you go to the tv menu & set to satellite & scan channels? For cable or antenna this has to be done every time you move. Is antenna booster off?

Tv only shows pv, HDMI 1 and 2. I didn't see any booster and nothing in the owners manual.

Your antenna booster is probably hidden in a cabinet or behind a tv, but you will have one. It looks like a wall plate with a cigarette lighter plug, a cable hook up, & a small button that will illuminate a small led light on the plate when its turned on. The booster must be off for cable/satellite & on for antenna signal.
As I said go to the "settings" menu, not the "source" menu & set it to cable with the booster off.

It's usually next to a 12 volt female cigarette outlet. Mine was in the bedroom on the ceiling. I knew what I was looking for on my new unit and still didn't see it because the outlet was black colored and so was the booster button.

Generally, I've found that the satellite hookup from the trailer will only feed one tv. That tv needs a satellite receiver between the line and the tv. On ours, we have an outdoor tv right behind the wall where the living room tv is. I used an HDMI splitter (which I didn't even know existed prior to this), and hooked the splitter up after the box. From the splitter it feeds both tv's. We have to have the same program on both tv's though, unless you switch one to cable. This doesn't bother us, as we only watch one tv at a time anyway.
