Depends on what you have and how it is hooked up. You need the cable from the dish to go straight to the receiver, no splitters allowed. Set your unit up just like you would do for park cable, and put the receiver at the first splitter or switch inside the unit. Generally that is by the antenna switch. Connect the output to TV connection from the receiver to the cable you took off of the switch or splitter. You can split that cable to your heart's content.

Hello,
There is a cable re run by FR. This usually runs to entertainment centre.

You need a dish and receiver. Dish Network has a attractive pay as you go plan. If you have dish/ direct at home using the same in the RV makes sense.

As far as dish there is a King Tailgater use with Dish and 1 coax. Winegaurd makes many different types ion dishes that work with Dish/Direct. Lots of accessories are available for ladder mount to see the south/ southwest sky easier. Some use ground base stand for there dish. Trees are a no go, need clear line of site. Using and app for smart phone to see the satellite in the sky when setting up.

Not enough info.

What kind of satellite service do you have? What equipment? What do you have at home?

Have you checked to see where the 'other end' of the satellite hookup is inside trailer?? I wouldn't assume where it is, though you can try the inside connection first.

Directv. I run cable thru a window, it's works fine. I want to run to side of trailer so I don't have to go thru windows. Thanks for the replies.

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.
