How to Hook up Satellite

I am the proud new owner of a 2015 Thor A.C.E. 30.1 and have purchased a tailgater dish for it. I would like to know how to tell if it is wired for satellite, and in case it is not, how to hook up the satellite. I would appreciate any help you could provide.

Thanks,

SMEADY64

And if it doesn't work.. we simply drilled a hole in the exterior, installed a cable hook up and added a straight line cable with no splitters to get to our receiver and then plugged directly to the HDMI switch box. You can also find cable flat wire at a camping store that can go thru a window and be able to shut the window back if you don't want to drill holes. I drill holes in about everything the first weekend so it doesn't really bother me anymore. Congrats on the purchase!

I did the same thing. Still wish it would feed the bedroom tv. Added a wireless transmitter to feed bedroom and it worked so we can view sat feed in bed
