satellite tv

I have owned three campers, current one 2013 rushmore. Outside satellite jacks would not workon any. It you have more than one tv in any camper the outside jack will not work. Works fine if you have only one tv in camper. This is the outside satellite jack. any ideas on how to get to work

I would guess that there's a splitter hidden somewhere that's disconnected or connected wrong. My buddy & I traced all the cable/satellite cables with a ohm meter, what a mess. Found 2 splitters, 1 cable & 1 satellite, in bedroom ceiling after removing a light fixture & found the incoming cable connected to one of the outgoing & vice versa. Even the schematics didn't help much, as mine weren't connected like their diagram. It's like one of search & find puzzles.

Tony, I have a 2013 Sunset Trail 32RL. I found the satelite and TV connection in the cabinet above the TV. I had to remove the false bottom in the storage cabinet above the TV to locate the splitter. Fortunately, every line was labeled and it was easy make changes. We have two TVs in our rig and I use a VuQube dish with two output lines. I installed a second connection and used the splitter to the rear TV to connect to. That way we can watch different stations on each TV.
