Satalite/Multi DISH Reciever Hook up ?

I have a Flagstaff 832IKBS 2015. My question is as follows. We bought the DISH Network Package with the Winegard pathway and two receivers. I hooked up the first receiver last weekend and it works fine. Now I want to hook up the second receiver in the bedroom but I am not sure about the sat coax connections in the bedroom and just how to get this second receiver on line. The winegard has a primary and secondary "coax out" to run a second receiver but do I hook that secondary out to the second input at the trailer coax box? If anyone has this setup, any info would be very welcome. Thanks.

Satalite/Multi DISH Reciever Hook up ?

The LMBs on the sat dish are powered by the sat box. If you try to use a splitter you would have no power to the LMB. That is why you need a separate coax cable from the each LMB to each receiver. On my trailer one outside connector is labeled satellite and the other is labeled cable. If your's is like that and you want to connect 2 separate receivers (like I did) you have to open up the antenna plate (the one with the button and red led) and remove the coax that goes to the cable input. Now take that coax and connect it to the coax to TV 2. Now you have a sat signal going to the second TV. Put a sat box by the second TV and you're good. However you now have no cable in at a campground. There is a modification that allows you to switch a wire when you need to and have cable TV. It's long winded but I hope it helps. Good Luck

On Edit; much easier to do it than explain it.

I just made the same modification. It does sound hard but it only takes about 15 minutes. The only thing you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and a coaxal coupler. Super easy and a whole lot better than a wire running thru a door or window.
