There is a separate orange coax connection for satellite inside. I just can't find any box for it on the roof. I think it's got to be under the cover where the king TV antenna exits the roof near fridge vent. Wondering if anyone can confirm. 2016 forester's are suppose to be prewired for satellite with termination on roof. The new units do not use the old style jumper coax.

Portable Satellite Wiring Diagram for Forester MBD

After exploring all possible coax routing options I got the attached diagram & notes from Forest River. The cable hookup is routed directly to the antennae amp/splitter (White Cover w/12v socket). By disconnecting the coax running to main TV and running a separate coax to satellite receiver you have a direct line to cable plugin at the rear of the RV. The HDMI cable is then routed from receiver to TV HDMI 1 socket. Attached satellite input at rear and make sure the antennae amp is off and presto your connected! No need to route new cable...
