Satellite tv hook up

I have a 2014 Thor Four Winds Class C. It has a wingard Antenna with regular digital tv with a signal booster and cable hook up on the outside. When I regularly hook up cable on the outside, I turn off the booster. Here is my question...if I hook up a portable satellite dish- a wingard carry out MP1 - to the outside cable hookup, how do I hook up the direct tv receiver to the coaxial cable and to the tv. I know I have to shut off the booster but I am not sure what to do to get this to work. I know that I have to go inside by the booster but I am just unsure of what to hook up where? Hook up to the tv, the receiver, and I dont want to run it through a window or door. I want it airtight. I purchased the dish from CW but they cant tell me how to hook it up. Anyone with instructions, insight or a diagram would be appreciated! TYIA!

I am assuming that you are attaching to the connector that is for the campground cable TV hookup!!! In which case do the following - At the booster the cable that comes off the front, labelled TV on the booster, which goes to the TV supposedly, remove it and attach to the out of the receiver now run a cable from the booster, the connector that had the cable you took off, to the in of the receiver. assuming the cables are all of the proper type and the cable that is supposed to go to the TV is actually attached to the TV it should work.

If you are hooking to the connector that is for an outdoor TV then you have a different setup to do.
