Cable/satellite wiring

Question. We have a new sandpiper 5th wheel and we unhooked the satellite cable yesterday and we have never got a signal again. It's our stupid fault for not labeling the correct satellite input on the outside of the trailer. We have 4 inputs outside and 3 inside but they are all marked wrong. Is there anyway to figure out which one is the right one coming from the satellite without running in and out and trying all of the different ways? And I will definitely be marking the correct names as soon as we figure it out.

Since I got no response I will answer my own question in case anyone else runs in to this problem lol. We found a tool at lowes today for 30.00. It works great. We now have all of our cables labeled. Click image for larger version

I have 2008 Forest River Berkshire 35ft, cant find satellite cable hook up. Inside my entertainment compartment, booster panel ( all working just fine ) and two coax cable, black and white with phone line marked as satellite. Black cable going outside to power hook up box, and I tested it, cable is right. But where is other end of white cable ? How I can find it ? Thanks in advance.
