Brookstone Satellite Wiring

I am installing a Dish Pathway X2 in my 2014 Brookstone 334RE it has a single satellite in connection port where the utilities enter and a satellite connection outlet in the living room and bedroom. I need to locate where the satellite cable splits so I can eliminate the splitter and run lines directly to both receivers. Anyone have an idea where the splitter might be. The outlet in the bedroom is in the ceiling and on the wall in the living room.

Pull the wall plate off and the splitter is behind there...we have the same dish and setup as your trailer...what I done was disconnected the regular tv antenna off the other wall plate and hooked up the second cable from the bedroom and now just use both jacks for dish

Satellite wiring

The splitter is in the wall behind the satellite outlet in the living room. I purchases a set of 12" fiberglass fish tape rods from Harbor Freight and was able to push them through the wall to an opening outside on the drivers side of the trailer where a flexible conduit runs from underneath the trailer along the frame rail up in to the rear wall. Took me about 4 hours to complete.

OK thanks for the info. Sounds like quite a project. I can't understand why these manufacturers can't figure out that you can't split a satellite signal. Would make it so much easier if they would just put in two satellite inputs.
