You are going to need to follow the DISH antenna cable route into the coach.
See where it goes thru the roof, then find it at the interior ceiling, then see if you can follow it inside to it's end point.
On my Vegas all the cabling is located inside the Micro/Convection cavity.
The cable end is probably just hidden from you inside a cabinet where the previous owner's DISH/Direct TV receiver was.
I can only assume that the previous owner took the receiver.

The instructions say you should do a direct hook up first to one TV, making sure everything is working OK. After that, can you just hook dish cable directly into the side connection of coach, turn off OTA booster and receive the signal to all TV's...of course installing the Wally at the specific TV you wish to watch? I have the tripod and will not install on roof...scared of holes.

no, splitters will prohibit this, and a receiver has to be at EACH tv - there's no such thing as a 'single' signal to all TVs - receivers are required, they process the signal and allow the TV to 'see' the channels.

and, you don't need any 'tripod', the unit can find the satellites on it's own - being level is also not required. Just set it on the ground, a picnic table, the RV roof, etc

Agree! My simplest solution is to plug a Roku Streaming Stick into the HDMI port and then hot spot from my cell. My AT&T already allows 10GB per month of hot spot usage and it's been more than enough.
The Winegard that came with the rig charges big for limited data and won't add to my AT&T account (they require a self-standing service).
