Unlike my current RV in a previous RV I had a selector box similar to this. There were no splitters installed which required all the TV's be tuned to the same input. If one wanted to dig out and remove the splitters, install coax extensions and route them direct to a box like this all the TV's could tune to whatever input is selected for that TV independent of what the others are tuned to. Oh well. Maybe there's another way.

If you are using Dish 712 or their RV unit connect the RV antenna to the ANT IN on back of receiver, then in main menu find Local Channels and have the receiver scan for stations. You will then be able to use your SAT receiver remote to watch locals. You may or may not have to turn the RV Antenna amp off, I don't also your set up may require you to use one of the 1 x 3 split units and don't forget to raise your RV antenna and lower it when done.

Not sure how the Georgetown is wired but my 5th wheel has two ports in the bedroom.
One for satellite the other for cable/antenna.
You simply connect the coax (to the TV) to the one you want to use.

If it's all coax I think I would be installing me an A/B coax switch in the bedroom. One time connection for both.

That would certainly work.

It's like let's one cable and splitter and 3 tv's and have everyone watch the same programs
My other mh had a cable for each. The designers are not campers?
So frustrated!!

It is cheaper to do it the way they do.
