Dish Tailgater and two TV's
« on: April 15, 2017, 12:52:24 PM »
I have had a Dish Tailgater for several years and in my small 5th wheel only one TV - well got a larger 5th wheel with two TV's one in the living area and one in the bedroom...wanted them to both have access to the Dish receiver.

Cable from Tailgater comes in through the window direct to the receiver. HDMI goes direct to the living room TV. The only other output ports on the receiver are the red, yellow and white old style AV connections. So I bought one of these on Amazon and then hooked the coaxial cable to the trailer internal coax connector and voila - hooked the bedroom TV to the coax and it now gets the signal from the Dish receiver...Happy Camper. The trailer was wired with coax in the living room and bedroom from the antenna - so same wiring now works in reverse.

Hope this helps someone else.
