Yes, satellite doesn't like 'connections', and can't stand a normal splitter. You'll need to ensure that the outside connection is a home run to where you plug up the receiver.
In other words, from the portable satellite dish to the receiver has to be a home run. It can have f/f connectors, that's fine (but too many or too long a run is a problem sometimes). But no splitters or such. Most trailers have a box with a small green light for the OTA antenna. On that box is usually another F connector. Mine is that way, and it's home run back to the outside F connector on 'side of trailer'. But my old Grey Wolf was NOT that way, the wiring never did home run. So I had no choice but to come through a window.
