2015 FR3 Direct TV

Can anyone tell me how to hook my external portable sat. dish to my motor home ? I have a "jack" in my elec storage unit. I can't figure out where to put the box. It has to be accessible to the remote. Any help appreciated.

How did you run your cable down the broom closet into the battery compartment. I called FR3 tech and asked if I would cut any wires if I drilled a hole to run the cable and he said he would check and call me back. Never did.

tv cables

In the broom closet ,in the corner there is a panel that covers all the wires that run down from top to bottom. remove the corner piece and run your wire with them , may have to drill a small hole at bottom and notch the panel at top. Also it made a hole in the wall at back of shelf to run power cord to where the tv plugs in. The panel is on left side rear kitty corner on mind. Also I add a surge protector at tv plug.

Go to Direct tv hookup and I posted some pictures and a short description of what I did. The post was on 5-6-17.
Good luck. Any more questions please feel free to contact me.
