I think that's the best idea I've heard. It's encouraging that you found someone who could do this, especially since we have the same model. Did you contact a DISH installer or just a local satellite company? My local RV dealer doesn't have much experience with hooking up two receivers.

There are several contract installer sin the phoenix area on craigslist. Most likely the same in your area. Ask for a name of someone in your area that the person has done business with and check him out.

I did finally contact Jayco today and they did agree to email me a schematic for my unit of the coax cable connections. They also emailed me a wiring schematic. I was told that you could not get these, but they were very agreeable.

I'm glad they helped you out Cheetah053. They definitely worked with me, but I called them as I stated previously vs an email.

I am a DirecTV and DishNetwork dealer that deals with RV's on a regular basis. I am also a owner of a 2012 36REQS. I upgraded from a 31RKS JayFlight G2. After close to 30yrs in the Satellite and Electronics business, I can honestly say for the comparable classes, Jayco does a better job with TV wiring than almost all the manufactures. On my rig, I replaced the TV in the fireplace lift to a 42", I used the existing wiring in the rig to run my 3 receiver DirecTV SWM system, which is the same system that you are talking about, with the exception that I don't need the expensive roof mount Winegard because I have the knowledge to align my Slimline dish wherever I go. Saying all this I know it doesn't help the do-it-yourselfers, but I said this because there are very few installers that understand RV's. I wasn't near as good at figuring them out until I personally bought my first one. I have come to the conclusion that most employees that install the TV cable and the designer that tells them how to install the cable at the factory have to be crack heads. We have found f-81 barrel connectors in the frame on Heartland built units, coax with screws through it on Keystone, Thor's, Forest Rivers, and the list goes on. At least Jayco, on my Pinnacle ran a different colored coax to each location. This is not necessary for us guys that do this for a living but it's great for do-it-yourselfers. With that DirecTV system, I would run the single wire from the Dish into the compartment behind the Jensen unit next to the fireplace because the rest of the coax is there as well as the roof top antenna. Someone that knows what they are doing can send the DirecTV and the roof top antenna down the same cable if your interested in having a DirecTV box at the 3 locations. I also spread out the shelving on each side of the TV in the bedroom and was able to put a larger TV there as well. Be thankful you got a better built Jayco vs the other brands in its class. Also wish the manufactures would get a professional to show them the best way to do the wiring which would save the end user from all the aggravation that RV owners have to go through. Also the dealers are not good with the TV wiring, installation of electronics as a general rule. Don't know how many RV's a satellite customer has had to have me come back to fix after Camping World and many more of the dealers have screwed up. The Winegard works great, I've installed several, and it is the only automatic unit that I' am aware of that does DirecTV in HD. Good Luck!!

Thanks for all the info and a 'thumbs up' for Jayco and welcome to the forum.

Please don't be a stranger. There are a lot of folks here that want to see input from professionals like yourself.
