2015 Jayco Precept 35 UP Aux Satellite hookup

Auxiliary satellite port inside motorhome cabinet has no signal when plugged into the outside cable port. When we bypass the outside cable port and hook direct into receiver and then into the tv cable inside cabinet then the satellite works.
We are not mounting our satellite on roof, we just want to use satellite antenna as a portable , it is a tailgater satellite. Anyone know why this will not work when we connect to outside cable port in outside storage area?
Thanks you,
LDB

Are you sure you turned the Antenna amplifier off? Many RV's are set up with a coaxial switch that goes to the antenna and the outside cable hookup. If the switch is off then you are using the outside cable.

Many times the Satellite signal will not go through splitters unless they are specifically for Satellite signals. So if you're hooking up to the cable port outside that could be the reason.

Here's something that might work. Of course, your MH is newer and may have this stuff built in. If so, just ignore.
