Blue Ridge 3705BH

We are on our first trip with our new Blue Ridge 3705BH. The coach has a connection for the "Park Cable" and two connections for "Satellite". I am trying to hook up my Directv system. Can anyone describe what the difference with the two different connections for the Satellite are? Do I connect the cable from the dish to one of them and then connect the box somewhere inside? I have tried both but can't get a signal inside. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You need to be using the twin Satellite connectors. The Park Cable connector is for cable TV at your campsite pedestal. It won't work for satellite because it's a different type of cable (RG-59 vs RG-6) and it's routed first to the antenna booster which blocks Sat signal.

As you look at the twin Sat connector panel outside, the left side/inside should be Living Room and the right side/outside is Bedroom.

If you're not getting signal, pop open the panels inside and out to check that the cable behind is tight (the connectors on the panels are just pass-thrus)
