Directv Genie Server and Clients Wiring

Wanting to move my Directv Genie from my house to my 2013 Pinnacle 38FLFS when we camp for extended periods. I Would prefer to leave the factory coaxial cable wiring intact, and run new dedicated runs for the Genie, back to the splitter/power inserter. I could use existing coax for the living room and bedroom, but there is only one coax outside for that TV, and it is tied into the antenna amplifier system. So, is anyone familiar with wiring pathways on the 38FLFS, especially between the outside TV and the living room TV? I have not had my trailer for very long and have not climbed under neither to explore access. I am hoping someone on the forum has. Thanks in advance!

Contact Jayco. They provided a wiring schematic for me. It made hooking up my DirecTV Whole Home system easy using existing internal wiring.

As a side note, I wouldn't try to install any new wiring or DirecTV now even if you can't use existing wiring. My neighbor is a supervisor with DirecTV and he told me they have a couple of test markets operating right now where their servers and clients are wireless. He hasn't been notified yet when it will roll out nationwide, but he did say it was working great.

Here are a few pictures of how to hook things up to the TV amp in the media center. May help once you get the wiring diagram from Jayco.
