Hi folks! I'm a real newbie when it comes to the RV lifestyle. I just bought the 32FR. Finally
built my deck and installed my satellite dish. I brought the cable in
through the window for the pointing and installation of the dish. Once
that was done, I discovered that the cable port on the outside of the
trailer won't bring satellite into the trailer.
In a perfect world, I would love to be able to watch TV on both the living room and back room TVs. I understand that I need an individual receiver for each TV. I'm pretty technically inclined and handy as well, but I would like to avoid drilling holes into this new rig.
All I can come up with at present is bringing the cable in through the
slide in the back room. That's a fine patch solution but it doesn't help
me when it comes to wanting to watch TV in the living room.
Any help you could offer would be really appreciated.
Not sure what provider you have, but I put my Dish Network 722 (HD and SD outputs) in the trailer when we travel. The HD output goes to the liv room TV and I spliced in the SD output to the back bedroom TV. This receiver allows you to use two remotes and watch two different shows at the same time. Works great for me.

Hey Erik if you go back a couple of months in the posts you will see your issue discussed at length. The problem is when you hook satelliteto the cable outlet, the coax from there goes to the booster by your tv. Satellite signals will not work through this booster so you have to bypass it. Checking these posts should help you, if not I will email you how to do this.
But isn'\t there a switch on the wall where the coaxial outlet that says antenna/off/cable position? I assume that if switched to the cable position, the booster would be turned off, as a bypass to let that signal through ?
