Satellite Upgrade question

Hi -- We have the TracStar satellite that was factory installed in the 2004 Monoco Diplomat. We would like to up-grade and reconfigure in order to be able to watch different stations on our two tvs while connected to Satellite.

We have spoken to TracStar (they were very helpful over the phone) and they have a dual upgrade kit for $270. They tell me this should be a simple install that will give us the ability to get two signals to the two different tvs from the original satellite.

I am wondering if anyone else has done this, and if so,

1) Can a regular TV install tech handle it, or do we need an RV Tech?

2) How and where to situate the second Direc TV receiver box? Can't see how that would work.

3) Is there a better way to do this?

Satellite Multiswitches - HomeTech Solutions Great website...especially their learning center and knowledge base sections. You may be able to do this yourself. A dual lnb ( and you may have one already) and a multiswitch will give you lots of options for way less than $270. Assuming SD DirecTv here.
