Dish Satellite

I'm thinking of purchasing a Dish tripod satellite and 722 receiver. Is hooking it up as easy as just hooking the tripod cable wire in where the normal rv lot provided hookup goes (near electrical cord), then hook cable wire by tv to receiver and receiver wire to tv? I do have an installed kingdom dom but I want a dual receiver to record shows because we are long term parked. I currently have Dish as my home provder. Is there any rewiring to do at the outlets by the tv? My set up is tv in the center with cabinetts on each side.cabinett to theright has elec plug, dc plug cable hook up to tv, antenna hook up to tv and switches to turn on and search for kingdom dom.
also my tv is screwed directly to the cabinett through bracket on top and bottom. I haven't figured out a way toaccess the back without unscrewing the brackets.
Any input, opinions and directions?

If anyone is interested... I found out you have to have a cable hook up that specifically says satelight. If you dont , you need go use a dieplexer at the cable hook up coming into the rv and at the hookup by the tv.

Or, just bypass the antenna booster and use that cable. Not 100% sure of your set up, but a lot of ours have had one inlet for cable only. So, bypass the booster and all is well. Most run RG6 anyway. Sat box works fine.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
