Hooking Dish Tailgater through connection by shore power

Can I hook my dish tailgater using the cable connection near the 30 amp powesupply, I know it works for cable, just unsure if it is the right kind of cable to transmit satellite signal

You don't have a satellite hookup?

Should work fine, providing there is not a spliter in the line some where. We have to run a seperate line since there is a splinter going to the back TV.

Maybe the new Sunseekers have a separate satellite connection, mine does not.

Mine doesn't carry the dish signal. Run a flat line through a side window. Have a mod in the works for that.

Do any of you use an inverter or have full hookups for power? Where do you have the satellite receiver? My connection is probably like yours, it only works for cable.

On my 5er, I ran my own feeds to where ever I wanted... RG 6 cable and a few fittings from HD....Also made a front and rear mount for ant. (dish....King Flex auto) so that no cables would be lay'n on ground to be tripped over at night....With 2 TV's I also have 2 receivers, 1 for inside tv, other for outside. So, it can be done.

The loop connects the TV to either the cable connection on the side or the connection on the roof. The roof is the terminal that is not connected. You can use either of the outside connections to hook up the tailgater.
