You can put an HDMI splitter on the output of the DTV box and feed both TV's.

There are also wireless HDTV devices that will broadcast to another tv.....switching channels on the box say from the back of the coach will work if your DTV box uses UHF transmitters (not sure as we have DIsh and they do) or an IR repeater can also be used if not.

I want to use the prewired cable coax if possible or wireless. I think I have to install direct tv box in my storage compartment where the satellite input is and split it there for it to go to the other satellite connections, IM not 100% sure.

Switch to a Genie and one mini Genie. No wires, ability to watch different channels.

If you can't see the box from inside, you'll have to go out to wherever the receiver is to change channels......the RF function on the remote isn't very strong...and to use a satellite splitter.....HD or Lowes have them....split after receiver for a second tv......you need a clear path from dish to receiver, no splitters, if using just one receiver....
