ACE 29.2 Satellite Hook up

Recently purchased a Winegard X2 Dish system...does anyone have experience with the specific changes I need to make to enable hooking the satellite to the exterior cable fitting? This if in reference to a 2016 coach. I appreciate any assistance.

I have a 2018 29.2 and was hoping you got this answered. It seems as if the interior cable switch does not allow the Walley receiver to send power out to the antenna.

internal splitters and switch boxes within RVs do not play well with those Antennas that need a 'return' power thru the coax cable itself...mine is the same... go direct with your coax cable to the receiver from the antenna.

I have a 2015 29.3 ACE the slitterand use a Dish VIP211z receiver and Tailgater her tv antenna. Works fine connected to external coax and as long as not blocked by trees.

I did take the feed off the splitter and routed direct to receiver. Then took non HDMI output thru RF converter back to splitter for other two tvs.
