OTA Antenna Wiring for 2018

Does anyone know if the OTA coax terminates in the satellite receiver cabinet on those models that have the tv and entertainment center in the kitchen slide? Looking at a 2018 DSDP 4362 and can't tell for sure. My Dish receiver can include OTA channels in it's programming, but obviously I need that signal near the receiver.

I assumed it goes directly to the TV (after booster and splitters). However, I noticed 2 antenna outlets in the A/V cabinet above the televator. One is marked satellite, the other is unmarked.

This makes me curious as to what to expect with our upcoming Bay Star. It would be nice to have an OTA coax run not only to the TV directly, but also to the A/V cabinet so you can use the OTA adapter (Dish Network) to pull the locals into the programming guide.

Then it gets more complicated....is the coax marked "satellite" coming from the ground mount connection in the electrical compartment? I'm going to add a roof sat antenna, so maybe that will be an additional coax? I'm confused!

I believe the one marked with Satellite comes from the dish on the roof so you can plug in your satellite receiver. Again, just my opinion.

I agree. Newmar doesn't do a ground satellite unless it is requested as a special. So I would guess he one marked satellite indeed goes to the roof. But I wonder what the unmarked coax cable is?

We had one added on our 2017 Ventana as a special for the same reason.

I was told that the second unmarked one is utilized when hooking up a Dish Network system

I have one of these (it is marked for Dish) and I have the Directv Trav'ler option installed. Where does the other end of this cable go to?
