Thumbs down 2015 Sanibel 3601 sat connections questions

This is the first time that I have hooked up all the Sat tv connections in the coach. The main tv works great but I am unable to get the Sat connection in the bedroom to work with the coach connections. When I tone out the connection i am unable to find the termination in the utility bay out side the coach. I of course may have something broke or disconnected some where. Does anyone know where the bedroom sat connections is suppose to terminate so i have a place to start here? Thanks for any help.

Are you sure the bedroom has a satellite connection? I know my crusader is living room only for sat.

There are two coax connections in the bedroom. The specs for the Sanibel does say there is a sat connection in the bedroom.

I have a 3600, there are two connections, one is antenna and one is Sat in the bedroom. In the utility bay there are two ports, one leads to the entertainment center, one leads to the bedroom.

In the bedroom of my 3600 there are two coax connections when you are looking at the tv wall on the ceiling there is one on the left for the ant. and one on the right I assume for the sat connection but i have placed a tone on the right coax and can not find in the UDC. in the UDC there are three coax connections two on the upper right, I assume the top one is the cable connection and and lower is the sat connection for the living room. Further down the UDC and more in the middle is another coax connection I assume that this connection is for the bedroom sat connection. But when I place a tone on the sat connection in the bedroom the tone does not come out in the UDC anywhere. I am thinking some thing must be wired wrong here. Any help here is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Does the Tv in the bedroom work on cable or antenna? I will get a pic of my UDC for you. Hopefully it will help.

I have a 2014 and on mine my UDC only has 2 coax bulk ends. On the Top right, one is for the main enternaintment, the one next to it is for the bedroom sat. I do not have a 3rd for cable in, I wish I did.

I did the labeling myself after I figured out which was which. Came from PT with the black labels. I added the Sat. labels for bedroom and living room.

Note: Sorry about the rotation!

a directv guy put an RCF (remote control frequency) box in ours, connected it to the satellite box. You can get one at radio shack.
We have a 2014 Signature ultralite. We had the same problem until he installed this box.

Sometimes units have a ant. booster either near the living room or bedroom TV, if this is on it interferes with the Sat. connection. I also have removed the cable plates and found the cable loose or not attached at all.
