I donated the Seiki's out of my coach to some seniors that needed a monitor for their pc's. They work good for that task.

Poorly as a 720P monitor.

This is completely off subject but thought I’d ask anyway. We just ordered a new tailgater as the old one had outlived it’s useful life and we constantly had issues locking in satellites. We ordered the pro and two wallys in a package through our home dish account. The pro has two cable out puts, one for each Wally receiver. We have a 2020 Thor Challenger and it has only one cable input. Was wondering what some of you have done short of running the second cable through a window. Looks like I’ll have to run a second cable and fish it up through the floor unless someone has another solution. Thanks. I’m new to the forum.

I had issues with my satellite. Same set up 2 wally boxes and a playmaker with 2 connections. I had another issue with the cable wire from the back rear compartment was not working. I pulled 3 new wires from the generator compartment up the A posts to the cabinet where are all the TV connections are and installed a box with 3 coax connections. I think I am still pushing the limit on the coax for the bedroom TV but works great in the living area. was an easy job with a friend to help pull the wire. I can now just feed the wire under the coach and set up my satellite

Thanks for the feedback. I pretty much expected I’d have to pull new wire. I’ve already determined where I’ll have to come in to the living area with the new wire. There is no way to use the same path the original coax came in on.

I havent found much value to a satellite.
It's too easy to pre-download to a dedicated old cell phone.
Non-commercial, watch what I want when I want. No programming schedule.

My Winegard G3 has two Wally capability. But I only use one Wally which is routed the same signal to all 3 TVs

If you’re not aware yet...the “slave” Wally (#2) has major limitations in a Dome dish set-up.
That is, every time the channel is changed to a different satellite on the “master” (#1), the “slave” (#2) must go thru an entire reset/restart process making the “slave” virtually worthless.
That’s because the slave must always use the same satellite as the master.
You can watch different channels as long as they’re coming from the same satellite. And the master controls the Dome dish.

If you want two Wally’s always available for all channels...go with a 2nd Dome dish or, better yet, the $1500 Trav’ler.
