satellite tv in new rv

I purchased a 2015 Rockwood TT today and I noticed that in the living rm there were three cable connections. One sat and cable and a separate one marked sat bed rm. In the bed room there is a sat and a cable. I currently have just sat and cable in the LR and cable in the BR. So does this mean that once I hook my tailgater up to outside sat. I can then just move the receiver between the LR and the BR. Or do I have to put a jump wire in the LR from sat to Bed sat ? Or am I way off base?Just trying to do my homework so when the new TT comes in I will be ready.

it appears that the reciever will mount in the Living room and you hook up the bedroom cable to the reciever to provide sat to the bedroom.

Well my receiver doesn't have coaxial out to the tv just has hdmi so I wont be able to use it that way. So maybe I can just put a jump wire on LR sat to br sat making that a home run to the br sat and then bring the receiver in the br and hook it up to that connection and it should work ???

Dish has a USB to coax converter for around $20.

You can buy a HDMI to Coax (RG6) converter for the output of the receiver and a Coax (RG6) to HDMI for the TV end in the bedroom.

Have fun

so with them connections since my receiver only runs one tv I still have to bring the receiver in the br to change channels . Or am I missing something ? Also is that the way the inputs work meaning lv bed sat is a direct line to the br sat input?So if that is the way it works then a jump wire from lr sat br sat will work also?

No you can buy a remote IR or rf control from radio shack or another electronics store.
