Satellite

Have 2016 Allegro Red 37PA. We have dish network satellite tv. I can not get the Dish network screen to even come up. The receiver is on all the Sattelite are located. It is like there is no signal being sent from the receiver to the TV. Any suggestions

Try running a separate temporary jumper between the two and see it that works. Make sure wires are connected none loose, TV setting is correct for impute signal.

On mine the splitter needs to be OFF as you are using the Dish not antenna.

On a newer Tiffins the splitter has to be on for the satellite or blueray to send a signal to the tv.

If you are not even showing the Dish logo/searching screen then you are not connected from receiver. Bad wire, wrong impute to TV ect.

Which satellite antenna do you have? The default setting for the dome antennas that Tiffin uses is DirecTv. You will need to reset the antenna to the Dish settings.

Once that is done, turn the antenna on and let it find the satellites, then turn on the receiver and the splitter/encoder system (should be a switch which also turns on a cooling fan). You should be receiving a sat signal and the welcome screen for Dish should be on your TV screen if it is set for HDMI 1 or 2.

To recap - Sat antenna set for Dish, video distribution system on, receiver on and plugged in properly to video distribution system, TV on and set to proper HDMI input.

It could be a few things.
The Tv antenna amp could be on.
The HDMI splitter in the cabinet could be bad which is a common occurrence. Or the 12 volt power supply has gone bad. Pull off the wooden panel , if operating, the splitters should have a light in them. Sometimes you can reset them by turn them off and on again.
