I found a photo online of the back of a wall plate for an RV. The lines on that one are not hooked up as mine are. I tried to post an image of each one to see if someone knows whether one may be correct or is they both would work this way. WE, the boss lady who is an IT person, cannot find a way to upload these images to a post. Any recommendations?

You may need a "power pass splitter". It will allow an injected current to go down your coax cable to your dish in the case of automatic dish antennas. Regular splitters will not allow this and generally have no place to inject power. Not sure if this is the OP's problem. It was mine and a power pass splitter fixed it. I use the King Quest Sat Dish with Direct TV.
I use the King Quest Automatic Dish and receiver at my TT, home, cabin and boat. As long as they are both together, it works great and I get local channels.
Only three connections, power, HDMI and coax cable. Otherwise, you would have to pay $7 a month for each receiver. I'm too cheap for that.

When I first talked to someone at DISH I told the lady that I was looking at buying the DISH Tailgater and a receiver, not knowing which receiver I may need. She talked me out of the Tailgater after a few questions. After I told her I live in S. Ga. and the campgrounds I had been to within 150 miles of home (Albany) have plenty of trees. She informed me that the Tailgater did not like anything that would block signals and the DISH 1000 would be a better alternative for an antenna. When I mentioned that two particular campgrounds I had seen people place their DISH antenna's at least 100 feet from the RV she told me that the Tailgater would have a weak signal over 50 feet. So I went with the DISH 1000 antenna and the Wally.

Hopefully the two images will be here: The top image is the way mine is set up. The bottom image is an image I found on the internet. I just wonder why there is difference in the two set ups.

X2 (3?) We bought one of the 6" flat cable connectors so we can almost close the window.

Not true. I use our tailgater with 75' of coax and a few times hooked a 50' to it for 125' total. No problems. I think she just wanted to sell you the dish 1000 and have you do a manual setup

"NMWildcat", that could have been but, I would up with the DISH HD antenna. The lady also told me that YES I could hook up two (2) TV's with the Wally so the g'son's could have satellite tv in the bunk room. The techy who changed out all the hardware in the house went out to help me set up the antenna and Wally then told me that the Wally only supports one tv. Live and learn

That's too bad that you didn't get good info from the sales rep! I hope you called back to see if they would address the problem and get you fixed up with what you wanted. They do have a newer dish king tailgater that has two outputs but you would still need 2 wallys, one for each TV.
