Winegard Pathway X2

Just purchased a Winegard Pathway X2 and had no problems setting it up and getting it to work at home. However, I really don't want to have to run the cable from the satellite dish to the receiver through the windows when we are camping. Does anyone have a similar system? If so, how did you solve this problem? Where did you run the cable? Thanks!!!

Winegard Pathway X2

I purchased a flat 6" piece of cable and ran through the back window. If you place it correctly you can continue to lock the back window.

Winegard Pathway X2

I have a in motion Wineguard mounted dish on the roof that works great for dish premiums but the internal dish is so small it rarely picks up the national affiliates due to low position of the locals dish sat position in the east.

I also had a Wineguard carry out portable from my previous travel trailer that I use in the FR3 to get nationals. This also helps me get coverage when I'm parked at a site that almost inevitably has some sort of overhand obstruction to the southern sky. Side note: for those considering installing a dome on the roof, about 70% of the time I can't see the sats at my site. I would have rather had the dish traveller foldable wider dish over the dome. But that's another story.

To feed to the tailgater carry out, While running cables for my inverter from the battery compartment up to the pantry I ran an extra coax cable up the channel (triangular cable channel on the inside left side of the pantry) up to the radio wire center. And from there out to the dish receiver that hangs under the TV cabinet.

The coax pigtail outside hangs in the battery compartment next to the light I use a female to female coax adapter on the end and cover that with a plastic bag and twist tie. Easily accessed with the battery compartment open, because that compartment is open on the bottom to outside the cable can run out to the dish.

I'm I missing something here. Are you saying that there is no external cable connection? We are shopping for a FR3 now. My current FR TT has two external cable connection port that I simply plug my Pathway into.

That's what I did. Worked fine.

Our FR3 does have one external cable connection port. With our Winegard, however, the coaxial cable cannot run through any other device or switches before the satellite receiver. For the kitchen TV, we're just using a flat coaxial cable through the kitchen window, as suggested in another post.

Clarification: We have two Dish receivers for two interior TVs so different shows can be watched at the same time. Cabling for the bedroom TV was not an issue.
