Automactic portable satellite questions

We are getting ready for a month long trip in a few weeks and I would like to purchase a winegard portable satellite dish and would like to confirm that I can,
  1. Can I bring my direct TV boxes from home? ( I have read many RVers do this )
  2. When setting up the satellite, can I plug in the actual cable from satellite to the MH exterior outlet wired for park cable? And then have the switch inside set on cable.
  3. Our MH says it is satellite ready or prepped, however it must be on the roof as I do not see another cable outlet anywhere that states satellite. Is there another exterior outlet? The switch box up front says antennae, satellite and cable.
  4. There is only (one coax) leaving the switch box so can I bring two boxes from home ( living room and bedroom and will they work) in the MH set up the same way as there must be a splitter after the switch in the front of the MH.
Thanks as CW has this Winegard automactic satellite on sale right now
