Question Reconnecting DTV after Fubo trial

2005 Phaeton with Winegard Trav'ler for DirecTV, installed 2015. Coax comes from roof into entertainment cabinet above PS seat, then into splitter, with coax to front TV above windshield and coax to bedroom TV.

Background: we have been in one location since Jan due to medical issues. When trees were bare, DTV through Trav'ler worked great. Once trees got leaves, boom, no signal (understandable). Using the RV Park cable PLUS used that issue as a chance to try streaming. Signed up for FUBO and overall, not happy. Shows freeze midshow, don't fully record as scheduled. Bottom line, want to set up a tripod dish and continue to use DTV.

My issue: As I am looking at the maze of cables/wiring in both the entertainment cabinet and behind the front TV, I see that I have TWO SWM units - one behind the front TV (Genie HR54-500) and one in the entertainment cabinet.

All the wiring diagrams I can find online only show a SWM-8 (which I don't think I have/cannot find or 1 SWM unit. Not sure why I would have 2 SWMs? And secondly how to make sure I rewire things correctly to avoid having a SWM fry my genie.

If you have the SK SWM Travler, the SWM is built into the LNB, but unless you are using a HR55 Genie, you have a power inserter somewhere. Nothing in the satellite wiring will "fry" anything if incorrectly connected. It simply won't work.
