Satellite cable

What would be the best way to get a satellite cable into the bedroom for tv or the living room on a 2015 3050s I'm not interested in running thru window

You can run a loop in the system to utilize the existing cable-in jack on the wall. Takes a moment to switch a small cable jumper to switch it from over cab tv to the bedroom, but it is the easiest modification to allow use of the satellite and cable through the same external jack. There's several recent posts, a tutorial, and wiring schematics on how to modify the existing connection. Takes about 10 minutes.

Only problem i still have is where to put the dish receiver when in use with the front tv. Hate to have it sitting and taking up space on the over cab bed.

Not familiar with the setup on your unit, but my solution on my last couple of fifth wheels -- my DirecTV receiver connects to the main TV in LR -- is to connect an RF converter to the receiver and backfeed the signal up the antenna feed to the bedroom TV using a bidirectional splitter to connect into the antenna line.This because the DirecTV HD receivers do not have an RF out jack anymore. Not as good picture quality that way, but I don't want to have a second receiver for the second TV. BTW if you use a RF remote for the receiver you can tune from the bedroom or wherever...
If you need more specifics on how to do the connections, give me a holler back.

I just set the Tailgater with the handle pointing North, connect cable to TG and then cable to the "Satellite" connection on the side of the camper and then go program the Dish to the state/town we are in. It is a trouble free system and pretty simple to use, otherwise I couldn't do it. We love ours after using it for 3 months in FL.

Sat TV is not difficult... Follow the wiring path... As long as you have it into the system in the front TV that receives antenna reception, there has to to be 2 legs of reception. More than likely the rear TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on the Sat receiver channel switch setting. In a 2015 model I would be amazed if FR has not made a direct path for sat TV input. Not many places offer cable tv hookup anymore. If not... Shame Shame.
