Couple of questions, TV cable an bike rack issues?

We have a KZ Spree 310 an wife an I bought a dish tailgater that doesn't work using the existing cable connection, I've learned from reading on here that it's due to the TT having a splitter in the cable some where, need to install a cable connection through the back wall so I can have direct connect to the receiver, could some one tell me how to go about this?

Second issue, didn't know about the rear bumpers being weak an I installed a receiver hitch to it to put bike rack on, no problems on first short trip but after towing up to Colorado this summer noticed on the drive home that the bikes we wangled down an bumper looked odd, the bumper had cracked where it's welded to the frame, on both sides, what's the fix for this? Either re weld existing bumper an put some kind of support under it at the frame points or just remove all together an replace with heavier duty steel square tubing??? Or is there another fix?

Sat TV.... You can -re-task- the cable, if you have a wall plate with a switch, Light, 12 volt outlet and antenna connection, likely near the main TV, pull it, on the back there will be 3 coax cables (normally) and the one in the center is the "park cable" lead.. Disconnect it and extend to the Sat in, Feed the Sat's TV-OUT back to where that cable was last connected.

OR: Better yet: Run a nice new length of RG-6 (or two) from any handy point outside to the Sat Receiver

The 2nd one runs back to a spot next to the existing park cable connection and a short jumper connects the two. You might want to make the jumper first.

The Hitch. You are going to have to have someone re-build the bumper and either strengthen it or.. Figure out a way to anchor the bike rack to teh back of the Trailer itself, something way stronger than the tin-foil bumper.
Home is where I park it!
