Install Dish Network in ST26RB

I have just purchased a Sunset Trail ST26RB and I was wondering how to install my Dish Network Tailgater system. I was looking to connect the Dish Network Receiver inside the trailer either under the bed or in the center media cabinet just under the fireplace. The challenging thing is that the coax cable to connect the satellite antennae is above the turntable where the TV is. I don't want to have a bunch of wires hanging in plain sight.

I used to have a Forest River Sport Surveyor with a turntable for the tv in the media center. The difference with the Surveyor is that there was room for the Dish receiver under the TV where the power outlet and satellite coax connector was also located. I could then connect the HDMI from underneath to the TV.

I don't see where I could connect a satellite receiver in the ST26RB. Any and all guidance or input would be appreciated.

I have a 26rb and the only satellite hookup I know of is on the back of the trailer on the left side. Looks like a electrical hookup. There are two coax connectors in it. Left one is for cable tv and the right one is satelite. Hope that helps.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reply. What I was more interested in is how I hook up my Dish Network Receiver inside the trailer to the TV in the entertainment center. I plan on connecting my Tailgate satellite dish to the satellite coax connector on the rear outside the trailer just as you described. Inside the trailer, the coax connector for the satellite exists above the turntable that the TV is mounted on. I need to connect a RG6 cable from that coax connector to my Dish Network receiver and then connect the HDMI cable from the Dish Network receiver back to the TV. I was hoping that Crossroads had built in some method to handle a satellite receiver inside the trailer.
