Used to you buy a standard TV SAT RCVR at the big box stores and they would set it up for your SAT TV provider and add to your SAT account. If they want to know where the TV is going to be installed tell them the Garage... It used to only cost an additional $6 dollars per room.
Another note not mentioned yet is if you have LOCAL TV on your plan this is not work beyond your ZIP CODE. So don't expect to receive local TV when you are away from your home town. We have great luck using the OTA crank-up BAT wing antenna picking up the local TV signal from the close by towns...
I used to drag along the SAT RCVR and portable tripod dish until the NATL BROADCAST went to digital TB back in 2009 I think it was. Now we just watch local TV everywhere we go. There is a couple of SAT TV channels we miss but we got over it ok...
Also on all of my older RV units I never was able to get the OUTSIDE SAT TV connections to work for me. Always ran a separate RG cable up through the storage bay door into the trailer and plugged into the back of the brought along SAT RCVR. Then I would use the VIDEO OUT connection to the local TV so I could select VID(with SAT RCVR)-CABLE-ANT with my TV remote. Didn't disturb any of the RV wiring doing it this way... If your portable dish has two port then you can a second RG cable to another SAT RCVR for the second TV location in your RV doing the same thing...
I have no idea how the modern RV SAT TV stuff works... Its all too expensive for me to know haha...
