Direct tv satellite

Hi i need help with Direct Tv hookup. On the side of my Travel Trailer. There are 2 ports. 1= satellite and 2= cable. I have a Direct Tv dish and receiver. I want to be able to view on tv in Lv area and bedroom and also exterior Tv. I know i wont be able to view all 3 only having 1 receiver. But my help is do i connect dish to satellite port? And if so what is the hookup procedure for the receiver? Can i take the receiver inside and hookup to each TV when wanting to view? My dish need to be powered up through the receiver FYI. i have tried to hookup dish to satellite hookup and attached receiver to any of the 3 TV's i have and get no signal. But when i attach dish to coax cable then to Direct Tv receiver and HDMI cable to outside Tv all works. Any help really appreciated. Tired of just being able to watch tv only on outside TV. Thanks Jim

I was told by the Direct TV installation guy that the signal from the dish to the receiver will not pass through a standard no-power-pass splitter. My bedroom tv and living room tv both work off the sat as they are on an HDMI powered splitter, but not the outside tv. I have no idea if there is a way around this. Maybe someone with better info will chime in. I'd like to use my outside tv with satellite.
My outside cable/sat connection works well and I still get fixed antenna signal of local stations on all three tvs.

I use my main Genie HD receiver and the small genie receiver for bedroom. I use a Directv Slimline 3LNB dish, Directv Splitter SVM 4 way with a power inserter (P-21). Sat cable connected to sat/cable port on rv. Believe there's some videos or instructions on how to connect....on Internet. Sorry I don't have more details....

You need to find where the splitters are an take them out you can not have any splitters in the line coming from the dish in order to watch on other tv you will have to un screw form your box an put a but to but from your living room back to your bedroom tv then hook your box back up you can get splitter that you hook your supply cable from the dish then that splitter has 6 to 8 outlets for cable that you could run a straight line to each tv

Not a dealer in America, and probably not any manufacturers, understand it.

I have not one flipping clue why not.........but they don't. Took me forever to figure it out.

Hint: A Radio Shack short piece of flat coax, through a window, will solve a lot of your problems. Forget the trailer wiring.

I installed a new coax jack next to the one already in and ran it directly to the cabinet above the TV. King Quest plugs into that which plugs into receiver in cabinet.
