New RV Owner with TV question

We just got our first motorhome, a 2017 Coachman Mirada Select 36BH. MY question is that I have a portable dish Tailgater satellite that I would like to hook up to the TV in the main cabin. The TV is located in the wall between the main cabin and the bathroom. My problem is I can't figure out where I can set the receiver and hook it up to the TV. Any suggestions?

We also have a tailgater & 211z receiver w/ our SS 2250.Our tv is mounted on an arm above the cab bed.I use a very flexible coax cord that runs out of a cabin bed window to the dish. So easy to set up, we love it. I also built a rear ladder mount for the dish when we have rear southern views .Good luck !

TV

Thanks for the info, was your TV already mounted on a swing arm or did you install one? If so what type did you use.

Thanks

Don't know if this will help but the Dish Wally receiver is about 2/3 the size of the 211Z and uses an RF remote instead of an IR remote so can be mounted anywhere even behind walls and so forth. Also either receiver can be mounted in any configuration (flat/sideways etc.). Just suggestions.
