I bought this kit on Amazon.

And also the multi split...

We use it with out boxes from home. We have the Genie system on three TVs and a stand alone HD DVR on the fourth. We brought them all.
The satellite input is setup to work on the three indoor TVs so we used the genie there. For the outdoor TV, I ran a cable from the splitter to the curb side basement door to connect the the fourth box. My plan is to run it behind the wall in the basement and add a cable outlet. The outlet that is there is for park cable only.
The satellite is easy to dial in and we hit all three birds within about 5 minutes. The cable from the satellite goes into the input of the splitter and then the cable to the main box (the SWiM receiver) goes from the red port in the splitter to the Main Satellite input on the camper. The other two go from the splitter to the front and back satellite inputs on the camper. I made up some short pieces of cable for this. The splitter and the short pieces of cable are still connected to the camper. All I have to do the next time is run the cable from the dish to the splitter and dial the dish in.
Works great, and we got to watch Baseball all weekend long.
