Connecting satellite

I have my Pathway X2 hooked up to my external satellite connection in the rear drivers side power bay. I have the box with several F59 connection on it in the cabinet over the kitchen sink, but no power there to plug in the Wally. In the cabinet over the television in the living room there is power, and an HDMI connection. How can I get this connected. 2021.5 36D7.

Not exactly sure what you are asking.
The Wally obviously must have power (120 VAC connection).
Then you need coax to the X2 from the Wally. Try not to run the connection through any splitters. The best connection is direct from the Wally to the X2 dish.
We've had luck with ours with 100ft of coax cable.
Maybe in your case run a long HDMI cable from the Wally to the TV.
Hope this helps.

Yeah, I used to connect through the satellite connections in our SOB fifth wheel, but I can't find a way, or a place to connect the satellite connection to the Wally that has a satellite connection, HDMI to the TV and power for the Wally.

I just went through this. I’ll post my install after this.
My dish is on the roof, prepped from the factory. I too found out you cannot go through splitters. The Wally has no coax out so I could not run it through the factory coax. I installed it above the TV and bypassed the splitters with A/B switches. So The switch will have cable/OTA and satellite settings. I know my FR TT had a dedicated satellite in connection on the side.
