2015 38flsa TV/satellite outside TV viewing

Unit has 2 tv' with a another hookup outside in the underneath compartment and in the kitchen l. I have purchased a new tv for the outside spot. I have 2 satellite receivers, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. Does anyone know if the outdoor hookup works off the front TV set up or the bedroom? I can't get the satellite to view through the outdoor TV. Using the antenna for outside viewing works fine but again no satellite. I'm not much of a tech guy and I don't even know who else to turn to get assistance. I was told to use an RF modulator and it should mirror the front TV which it didn't. Any ideas?

Each tv needs to be hooked up to a satellite receiver to work.

When viewing outside we take the receiver from the bedroom.

I have had sucess using one of the wireless video links such as:

These work reasonably well if your satellite receiver has audio/video RCA jack style outputs ( yellow, white, red) and your outdoor TV has RCA jack style inputs.

Thanks everyone for the help. Had my nephew come by and look at it. He hooked up an RF modulator on the satellite receiver on the main TV. It worked !! He did have to disconnect the TV antenna to do so. We then purchased a wireless extender and now I can change channels without have to go inside to get a line of sight to the satellite receiver. So glad my young nephew was so tech savvy.

We always took an extra coil of RG CABLE and one of those two port TV splitters and hooked up to the CABLE PORT on the pedestal. One hookup went to the trailer and the second hookup just got throwed under the trailer to be used by a TV sitting on the outside table arrangement...

Worked out great reminding us to bring in the TV when bad weather was approaching etc. We just sit the TV inside the trailer door when left unattended..
