I have a Pathways X1 which can only receive WA satellites. Have done two coast to coast trips and traveled from north New York State to St. Augustine FL. Never had a problem getting signal from WA satellites. A few times locals in HD were only on EA satellites so we had SD, no big deal. Just installed a Travel'er and now take my Hopper 3 from home. 16 tuners plus OTA locals.

Satellite

We also had a problem with our Satellite connection. Inside the living room they had them reversed. I hooked up the satellite to the connection that said cable. Worked fine. Might be worth a try.

We purchased a new 2016 3120RL and had the same problem. It was wired incorrectly from the factory. Took it back to the dealer and they fixed it. Not sure what they had to do but Iím sure it meant dropping the underbelly.

You need two Wally tuners - one for each TV that is connected to the indoor/outdoor cable outlets.

Cable hook9

Actually the reason is that your decoder box needs to be inline before your rv input. So leave the sat box in garage and run the splitter to inputs.

Kris,

This is what I did on our 2019 3121RL in order for our Pathway antenna to work without having to trace wiring. May not work depending on whether your floorplan changed a lot between the 2019 and 2020 models. Below our TV is the fireplace. I pulled the fireplace out and ran a section of coax cable down from the satellite box through the wiring loom that goes out through the slide out floor. Where that coax wire came out under the slide out I put a barrel connector on the cable. Now when we set up I just run a cable from the Pathway satellite to that coax under the slide out, easy setup. Did a similar direct cable run for the bedroom TV. Threw a coax cable from the convenience center, across the storage bay ceiling, fed it into the bedroom where the washer drain pipe goes through the floor, behind the dresser, then up to the TV cabinet. In our unit the washer drain pipe is concealed in the bedroom by a carpeted box where the wall and floor meet. Poke around in that carpet and you'll find screws holding the box in place. Back those screws out and you'll have access to the drain pipe route.
