I anticipate it will work in the RV too, but to be safe, I'll test it before I make things permanent.
I use an "A"/"B" coax switch with my tailgater/VIP211K receiver system. It works just fine. I connect my tailgater to the park cable input and use the A/B switch (park cable connected directly to switch input mounted in the overhead along with the VIP211K) to route either park cable to tv input selector or to VIP211K receiver for its coax output to my tv input selector. I only have SD (not HD) sat to the tv because an HDMI cable is not routed to the tv but SD is fine for us. None of my existing coax for this install is associated with the roof antenna/booster/switch panel and therefore do not have to worry about booster on or off.
