TV wiring in Thor Vegas/Axis 24.1

I am trying to figure out the wiring scheme that Thor used in my 2017 Thor Vegas 24.1. I am trying to add an adapter to run the Over The Air antenna through my Dish Wally receiver. Has anyone done that yet, if so please let me know how you wired it. I have been in contact with Thor and King regarding the wiring and no one can seem to or wants to provide what I need.

Thanks.

You need an unbroken coax (RG-6) run from the antenna to the receiver. The receiver powers the antenna LNB with 18-29 volt DC. Any cheap splitter or loose connection will cause the LNB not to power up. The splitter is found just behind the on-air antenna control box and can be replaced with one where one terminal will pass DC current. When I called Thor MC 4 years ago, that is the information they gave me. So far the DirecTV (ATT) SWM (HS-17, genie 2) system has worked perfectly with the three Axxera TV sets. A search of this site will show more post on this subject than you can read in a week. My TVs use the Thor installed coax for on-air TV and DirecTV is wireless through one of HDMI ports.

On an Axis 24.1 the on-air antenna control box is located in the cupboard above the kitchen sink.

I opted to take a different path...

DISH is on its own line from the roof top dome dish to the Wally above the sink cabinet (DiSH coax is routed thru same roof hole as the over-the-air antenna coax)

From the Wally, using an HDMI splitter...I ran 3 separate HDMI lines to all three TVs.

So now...all 3 TVs are the following:
> HDMI 1 is DISH (all 3 must watch the same DISH channel)
> HDMI 2 is a DVD player
> Coax cable is over-the-air digital TV

All 3 TVs have the choice of watching any of those 3 feeds
