I pulled the module out of the wall to see how it was set up. The trailer is in fact prewired with RG6, Now my only question is can the cable input from the external jack stay connected the way it is or does it have to go directly to the satellite receiver and then to the TV. I've read that the sat signal doesn't work well with splitters and I don't know if the wall unit constitutes a splitter or it it just an amp for a weak signal. I'm gradually getting all of this sorted out. I've never dealt with satelitte before so all of this is a learning curve.

Have you found out the answer to this yet? I have the same questions. I have a 2003 Kiwi Too and can't seem to get satellite signal from exterior coax outlet to interior tv.

Bob:
You can connect the satellite cable to your outside connector. Just turn off the tv antenna amplifier inside on the tv outlet and hook up your satellite receiver and you are good to go. Your unit should probably be wired with the RG-6 cable. In my 2001 Jayco I put an additional connector outside the unit for my satellite and a new connector on the inside next to my tv jack. That way I can watch satellite tv on the main tv and the wife can still watch regular tv from the tv antenna in the bedroom. I'm a football nut so have to have satellite! lol
Also new user on this forum as we just purchased a new Jayco G2 31RKS and traded in the old unit. Pulling the unit with a 2008 Ford F-150 with the 5.4l engine and so far no problems. Been up a few hills but not sure I want to tackle any mountains with it.

No, you can't do that. The dish requiers 12VDC to operate. The Winegard batwing amp will not pass 12V to the dish via the standard cable wiring. This is from Winegard, not my opinion..

I don't know what kind of dish you've got. I have never seen one yet that requires 12v.

The 12V is supplied by the receiver, it's not a seperate connection. I'm not a satelite expert, I'm only going on what I was told by a tech support rep at Winegard. That's good enough for me. I ran a separate cable.

I was told by the salesman that our 2011 is ready for satellite. I will find out for sure on Tuesday. If it isn't it will be.

For what it's worth, on a September trip we couldn't figure out why my sat dish wasn't feeding from the outside sat/cable connection to the inside jack. Got Dish to come out. The guy told me that trailer systems only work with satellite dishes half the time. So I ran an unsanitary cable run into the trailer. I really hope the new Eagle's cable system will work as intended. Otherwise I paid a Ben Franklin for a dish and tripod for nada.
