Verified Are you using a tripod type dish that sits on the ground? The dish will be on a table with a stand to lock in satellite signals RV Mechanic: On some of these dishes they have dip switches inside of them and they need to be set to the correct provider, once that is set up and you turn the TV and receiver on you have to go through the steps of setting the programming up, normally it is called checking the switch.

RV Satellite TV: Demystifying the Dish Selection, Services & Options
Not resolved 1 comment We recently purchased a new 5th wheel by Keystone. In the brochure it was listed as standard option “Satellite Prep”. Keystone Rv – Appliance Turns out, only the main living area is prepped for satellite or cable. While looking at RV’s prior to purchase, our salesman and us had a lengthy discussion about why we were interested in this unit, mainly the back bunk area for traveling with our grandchildren, the convenience of them having a separate space, and how we traveled with a tailgater satellite system for them to use.
Occasionally, dishes set out on tripods will get stolen..
Satellite TV Hookup question? OK, First off, I am sure this is a duplcitous post but I would like to get feedback on my specific question. I have searched the forums on here as well as tv4rv and rv. Here are my questions. I only have one output on the outside labeled “cable”. Can I use this output and not the amplified booster to hook my satellite into?
I don’t want to damage my receiver. I know that I need to change the settings to the 18″ dish from what my house has HD. I haven’t tried to hook up yet becuase I don’t want to damage anything. I have read some of these posts and have no idea what you guys are talking about. I am sure this is tecno bable for those of you who understand it but I am not one of those people.
I stopped by the local RV shop and asked about this wall plate pictured below from Winegard. The RV dealer told me that in order to use that particular wall plate that I would have to run a seperate cable from the outside to wall plate and then from the wall plate to the receiver. Thanks for your help guys!

So, you’re tired of squinting at 2 snowy channels while your neighbor is watching the Big Game on his wiz-bang satellite system? Just not sure where to begin to get a satellite for your very own? Boy, are you in luck, because this article is for you! We are going to concentrate on the hardware basics here I’m not going to get into a big discussion of which satellite TV vendors offer the best deals or the best programming or the best price.
The market is so changeable that anything I could tell you right now would probably be horse apples by the time you read this.
You probably know somebody who has an unused open dish left on their house or yard and that you can have just for the effort of removing it.
We have a new Big Country. This is our second time out with it. We are attempting to set up our Directv Dish Satellite to the livingroom television. We have set all the azimuths, etc. Don’t know if there is a wiring problem inside the RV or what. We have camped for several years at this park, using the same hook system as we are currently using on our old RV.
Never had this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct the problem? We are up near the border of Canada and aren’t even getting any good digital signals from the RV antenna. We just don’t know if the labels are correct or if the inside wire is good. From the UDC the cable connection goes to the bedroom and connects to the booster. The outdoor TV antenna also goes to the booster.

This can be a good cost-saver if you only need RV satellite TV during the summer months.
It will not come back on unless i turn the switch off and back on. Today Hi, I have a EuroVan camper with the norcold fridge. Today we’re noticing the fridge is not getting cold. No how do we remove the hot water from our winnebago JA: Okay, I’ll connect you to the mechanic to walk you through that for your RV. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know? I bought it from Camping World Nashville in May.
Keystone Rv Cable Hookup Wiring Diagrams
The answer is yes. First you need to understand that a satellite receiver supplies D. The second thing is the typical Wineguard antenna amplifier will not pass the D. With this understanding, we can proceed with the modifications necessary to make the satellite system work with what the stock RV system provides. Refer to the diagram below for a block description of what is needed and the accompanying text of what is needed.
There is a small switch on the amplifier front face that allows you to select between cable and antenna.
You must also purchase a satellite antenna dish or dome to capture the signal, and buy or lease the receiver that processes it for your TV. The receiver for the satellite signals is extra and may be leased from the satellite provider or purchased outright. Equipment may also be present in a used RV, but you still have to contract with a satellite TV service to utilize it. Getting set up for RV satellite service can be frustrating—the local satellite dealers rarely know much about mobile satellite service for RVs and many will not work on them at all.
An RV dealer or a store like Camping World is a better source for help in getting started with RV satellite TV service, but they tend to sell canned packages that may or may not be exactly what you want. All forms of RV satellite TV need a clear view of the southern sky the satellites are all located over the Equator, pretty much due south of Texas.
