2015 Seneca 37TS - sat tv wiring

Just picked up our seneca Friday. Went to set up satellite with directv receiver. Got it working to front tv and bedroom tv. Not working at outside tv.

Question: does anyone know if one of the outbound wires goes to outside/patio tv?

Can't see behind that tv to see what wires are set up without taking the tv out. That's the next step. Just thought I would check in case someone has already been down this path before.

Let me know what you find out in regards to this issue. Were you able to use a HD Directv receiver?

I purchased our Seneca in September. I called Direct TV tec support prior to taking delivery of the Seneca and asked them if my Genie receiver which I used in our old fifth wheel would work in the Seneca with the Winegard Roadtrip Mission satellite antenna that comes standard on the Seneca. They told me that the Genie receiver would not work with that antenna but their R22-100 receiver would. They sent me the older receiver and I had the dealer install it prior to delivery. The main tv and bedroom tv both work fine with the R22 receiver. I have not turned on the outside tv yet to see if it works, the weather has been to cold to mess with it yet.

TN, I have exactly the same experience. Front and bedroom receive signals and work fine. No satellite reception on outside TV. Dealer said that is normal. I called Jayco and they said I should receive satellite on outside TV as well. He said there should be a connection behind the front TV in a junction box. I checked and did not find a connection or a cable to connect to box. I do receive off air reception on the outside TV. (Go figure.) I also receive off air on both inside TVs. I have Direct TV and you will not receive HD with our Winegaurd satellite unit. Direct TV advised me that I can not use an HD receiver with the Winegaurd satellite unit.

P.S. I don't receive cable reception on any TV when I am connected to an outside hookup in an RV park. Don't have any idea why. Hope this helps. Sam

Try using the auxiliary connect on the outside. I have no idea where my Sat connection goes but it's not to the satellite connect by the tvs.

Our unit, that we picked up in early October of this year, has an HDMI "splitter" (?). I believe that is how the signal gets to all 3 TV's. The HDMI controller has 4 ports, but only 3 are used. I feel that is the main cabin TV, the bedroom TV and the outside TV. I think I have all ready over extended my knowledge base. Just what I know. ;-) At this time.

When I was working on my 2014 Seneca 37FS, I emailed Jayco and they sent me a great schematic of the wiring. It shows everything and helped me restore the connection to factory design. I recommend the same for your year model.

Direct TV Satellite

Directv is coming out today and I will post how it goes. I am hoping I will have no problem with the feed coming in above the cab, back bedroom and outside but I'll let you know what I find out. This is for a new 2015 Senceca 37TS.
