Question on installing the tailgater dish

I am totally in the dark on installing a dish. If I mount the unit on my ladder can I run the cable from it to the cable connection on the Motorhome and feed the signal to the receiver thru the internal coax into the compartment in the rv where it terminates then into the receiver?

Depends on what type of cable was used for the hook up

How do I determine what cable is in the motorhome and if it will work? What I do know is it works well with the cable supplied by the campground. I just put the motorhome in winter storage so can't easily get to it to look.

Some MH that have a switch that changes between the over the air antenna amplifier and the cable TV connection can have circuitry that blocks either the power to the Tailgater or the signal from the Tailgater. This is usually a switch with a light nearby located near the front TV. Others witch such a switch report no problem.

On my coach I don't have such a switch - the Tailgater to the cable TV connection in the equipment bay and it works perfectly.

Try it and see what your results are. If it does not work you may have to do some modifications. If it does you are golden.

We enjoy the Tailgater. Works well, easy setup and reasonably priced.
