Thank You everyone, I will look into some of the suggestions - I wouldn't think the cabling in the RV would be an issue since almost everyone's Rv is probably ran a similar way.

I just had a similar issue with the set up of my Tailgater 4500. Use a DVOM and check voltage on the Coaxial cable. The Dish need 12 to 19 Volts DC to operate. Check it at the back of the box then at the output from the side of the unit, then at the dish. If you have no loss of voltage. raise the unit up, two feet made the difference in connecting and not connecting for me.

I used to have the same issue with the small Dish antenna. Now I'm on DirectTV and use a full size antenna on a tripod and my box from home. Never any fade issues now. After you set up an antenna on a tripod, you get good at aiming!
