Satellite Hook Up

Hooking up my King Dome One direct TV dish and receiver (hr25). Not sure if we are doing this correctly or not, we have a 3895 Voltage Toy Hauler. It has one connection in the utility cabinet marked SAT/Cable. I changed this wall plate out at this location from a single to a double, in order to accept the two coax cables coming from the Satellite. We then ran the two cables to the King power inserter and DSWM30 module. Coming off this module I used the existing coax that was connected to the single wall plate that was replaced with the double. This line runs to the antenna booster. The antenna booster has the antenna in, cable in and an out cable that is connected to the 4 way SWM splitter MSPLIT 4R1-03. What we thought we could do was used two receives at 2 out of the 4 tv's in this trailer. We tested our outdoor TV as a standalone and it worked. Going through this configuration we are testing our tv in the living room and it is not working. Won't communicate with dish. Each tv wall plate only has one connection. Do i need a separate set of cables for the satellite or can i use the existing cables.

You need a separate set. Bypass the power switch and tv splitter, it’s not made for satellite.
