You either need a directv whole house package or two receivers. If you have dish, then they have a similar system.

Depending on whether they are regular receivers or DVR's A regular receiver needs a dedicated line. DVR's to work properly need two for each box. I just rewired my fiver and now have two cables to each receiver location so that I have the option of running the roof top or tri pod mounted antenna. How are they hooked up at home? They need the exact same thing in the trailer to work properly.

Each receiver usually needs its own separate coax feed from the lnb...but, we don't know what kind of dish/lnb or receivers you have.

We just did this in our Class A.
you would need a Dual LNB dish and run new cable. We were told that the current cable does not support satellite.

You need two if you DON'T have Hi-Def. If you have Hi-Def, you can use only one coax per receiver. Just installed DVR on our MH by a DirectTV tech.

Each DVR tuner must have it's own feed IF you want to watch and record at the same time. If you don't care, then a single feed is OK.
