Flagstaff 5th Wheel TV/satellite connection

I hooked up Mobile satellite dish to main tv with no problem but cannot get the tv in the bedroom to connect. There is a bedroom sat. In receptacle in both the bedroom and in the main entertainment area. I have tried everything but get no signal on the bedroom tv. The main tv works fine. Any ideas?

On my Flagstaff 8529IKBS there is a Satellite FEED to the bedroom, on an outlet plate next to the over-the-air antenna plate in the living room entertainment center.

I have to feed the satellite receiver's video signal to the bedroom using that port. I then connect the bedroom tv to the SAT port in the bedroom.
This set-up allows the bedroom tv to watch the same channel of the satellite receiver as the living room tv.

If you are wanting to connect a slave receiver such as a Genie, you'll need to use that port to feed the slave receiver to the bedroom from the master receiver.

Every R/V is different though so no two are seemingly wired the same.

Thanks, tried this method but still no video feed to bedroom. I must be missing something or there is another issue with the wiring the previous owner stated he had the bedroom tv hooked to satellite and it worked so not sure.....
