First; There are multiple answers and the one I'd recommend may not be the wone you want.
How is your RV wired, Pick one
A:On the wall somewhere usually near where the rooftop antenna is, possibly in the compartmetn where the TV is, should be a wall plate, it will have a 12 volt accessory outlet that is next to useless, a switch, a light and an antenna connector.. -or-
B: in a compartment near your main TV is a box with many buttons (BOMB) actually it is called a matrix switch the buttons are grouped TV-1, TV-2, and so on, and labeled ANT/Cable/SAT and so on...
IF A Remove wall plat from wall, if 3 cables are connected to back, return, if the center port is vacant but the two outer ports are connected Return
Run coax from the front port to the Sat Receiver TV ANT IN.
NOTE: IF cable already there, it likely runs to the main TV antenna in this too is good.
If you have the box of many buttons... Is there an "AUX" group that basically does nothing.. if so find the AUX OUT line (or TV 3 if you don't have a TV 3) and run it to teh Sat Receiver, choose ANT for that output.
That is really about all there is to it less someone messed up your connections. then you need experienced help.
