Yes, Yes, Yes on the previous posts. I just wanted to mentioned how I added a direct input for the bedroom in my WH30DSRE. It might bring a chill to you to get out that drill with a big bit and punch it thru the wall of your new TT, but its really painless if you think before you drill. I purchased a coax input set with spring loaded outside cover and mounted it below the outside shower door. If you look under the bathroom vanity sink, you can see the location where the water lines for the fresh fill and the outside shower come thru the side of the TT. Drilling in this area will bring the coax in under the sink cabinet and can be fed into the bedroom / bath wall and fish it up to the existing wall plate for the internal coax connection. I removed the single plate and added a plate with dual connectors and reinstalled. One connection is for the internal wiring and the other is the direct sat input you added. Real neat and professional. With this set you can hook to the house wiring for a signal from the main tv/receiver or the roof ant or use the direct feed from the CG cable or your sat dish.

You'll be proud of yourself when you pull this off.

Satellite

Will the 211K coax output support the bedroom TV & the outside entertainment center TV both ? That's with the HDMI supporting the living room TV ! Realizing that all would be watching the SAME channel with the dish tailgater !

Yes that should work, but you will need a coax splitter in the back. Then drop a cable down behind the drawers from the bedroom tv to the outside tv.

HDMI Splitters

Will the 211K dish receiver support all three TV's in the Jayco precept 31ul by using only HDMI output port and HDMI splitters ? Realizing the same channel would be on all three TV's ! I'm wondering if that would be better than using the combination of HDMI and the coaxial cable ? Thanks to tinman for your input !

Satellite dish recommendation

What kind of dish do I need for a HD Directv receiver? I want HD in the trailer but there seems to be 2 types of Directv dishes. SWiM and not.

Well... I purchased a second hand Pathway X2 system with a VIP211Z for use in my 2015 Greyhawk 31FS. I don't know if it's right or wrong but I most certainly don't have the setup of connection described and shown in the pictures in this thread. I have a single dual outlet that also has the TV Antenna amplifier control. I thought I'd be able to run the Pathway to the outside coax input and then hook up the inside connection that states that it is for Aux/Sat, but no matter what I tried I get no signal from the satellite and it won't even power up the dish.

If you purchased a second hand pathway, I would hook it up straight to a TV and make sure if is even working before trying to hook it in to your Greyhawk. Could have a bad Pathway. If that works, then start trying different things on your Greyhawk.

Been there done that and it's already activated. (Was a great deal by the way... Folks had upgraded to a DP with built-in inmotion and we're getting too old to lug the pathway around. $180 for the dish, receiver, remote, and they even had the digital OTA adapter)

Every time I try to wire it through the outside coax jack... I get the "there was a problem detected with your switch"-crud. If I run a coax out the door to the dish it works fine. Like I said...the coax jacks in mine look nothing like the pictures here. There's a dual coax jack labeled for roof satellite and then another one that has dual jacks, one labeled "aux/satellite" and the other labeled "TV" (This is the powered jack by the way)
