Pull your wall plates labeled for Sat. and Sat/Aux. Almost all the newer units I've seen and/or helped other people diagnose use ORANGE cable for Satellite service. As previous post have already said, satellite is usually straight runs from point "A" to point "B" (no splitters). IF there are splitters involved (I doubt it) they have to be special satellite signal type. But, that shouldn't change the fact that the satellite coax is ORANGE.
Does your unit have a central area for ALL your hookups (docking station)? Mine has 3 coax connections outside. 1 for "Park Cable" which feeds all Tv's in the trailer, & 2 Satellite connections (1 for the livingroom & 1 for the bedroom Tv's).
So, if you find ORANGE coax behind your wallplates at the Tv's but no ORANGE coax in your outside connection area then, it sounds like they forgot to install the connection plates. You may have to remove some panels (if possible) and see if they left the coax(s) laying behind. If they're there then just install new connection plates if you have the room.

Hopefully you'll have something like this on the exterior of your Silverback. It would have either two cover flaps like in the picture or one that covers both sides. It would be unusual for the factory to not install this if you have Sat hook ups inside, but it's not unheard of that they'd forgot to connect the RG6 cable to the back of the connectors at either end.

As rracer5 stated, they are in your docking station. This is where your water connection, outside shower etc... is located. The black outlet on the door side is actually for connecting an outside tv.

The black coax is my satellite. The white one is cable(first time I have used it). Free in the park.

Hope this helps. Never have put a receiver in bedroom yet. No help there.

Thanks you all for your help. I found the two covered coax connectors in the bay where the dump handles etc. I've put the tv on hold. I'm still trying to make the creek more sturdy, So far I've installed a device inbetween the wheels. Next is to deal with the unbelievably steep stairs.
I'm still surprised how the owners manual provided does not match major items. There are "a" "b" and "c" speaker choices. So far I've found "a" and "c". I can't hear anythibg on selection "b". any ideas?

Is there a owners manual for the 2012 29RE?

Think "b" would be the bedroom speakers if equipped. Mine is not. Just remember "c" is outside speakers. It plays on the DVD player. Luckily my neighbor was laughing about hearing Talladega Nights while he was grilling.

Things can be pretty lacking on explaining. Just ask. I learn stuff on the forum all the time.

Thanks.
If no speakers are visible in bedroom might the bedroom still be wired for them?
