Keep in mind you have maybe 20' of cable inside your RV plus your 50' outside your RV. So 70' could be your problem.

I know I helped one person fix their Tailgater by creating shorter Coax cables using premium Quad shielded RG6 cable with compression connectors.

In my RV, I've replaced all coax F connectors with compression connectors as well.

My current TV solution in the RV is not Satellite, though. When they tried to extort $140 a month from me for crappy TV, I threw all their stuff away and went with streaming.

Unlimited internet on my phone was a $30 increase and is $50 so I'm saving about 50%. Since you can only get good quality signal on you phone and not hot spotting, I use a USB-C to HDMI cable from my phone to TV and that works great. OTA antenna covers most of what I watch anyway.
