Run your co axle cable from satellite to the connection point on the outside of your trailer, point the dish in the right direction, set up your receiver box to the tv and you should be good to go

The cabling is in place inside your unit. You still have to provide the Dish and Receiver. You can find abandoned dish's left all over the place. Tripod's can be picked up or direct TV has a package for those that travel if you want to pay.

In our previous tt it was only cable ready and in order to use my direct TV I had to run coax through the slide into the entertainment center. Nice to know that I don't have to do that again.

There is a little more to it than that. See this thread:

I've had more than one Dish tech tell me the RV's cabling frequently doesn't work. No reason Direct should be any different. I run RG6 from my satellite into the trailer and directly to the receiver. I also run cabling in chase to the 2nd TV set.

It means folks who don't have cable at the campgrounds are going to be over to your trailer... Cheers..
