I’m not clear on how to connect the DPH42 to the dish. The RV Tech who installed my Winegard system has always done great work with attention to detail. He ran one of the lines from the dish to the Winegard box, the second line plugs into the Dish receiver, and the third line is unused. Your wiring diagrams never indicate how the Winegard box is wired, or maybe they do and I’m just not seeing it.

On the base of a Winegard Travler, there are several connectors like so:

A, B, and C in the photo above get connected to the DPH42 switch.

The Interface Box cable connects to the Winegard control box.

Since some DISH receivers (like a Wally or 211) only need one coax connection, that's all that was run on your RV.

However, Hopper 3's require different connections.

Since everything is still SD using the RF modulator should work. You will only be able to watch the same channel on both TV's but for many folks, especially if you watch very little TV, this is just fine. If you ever want to add the option to add a 2nd receiver/Joey you will want to take the BOMB (Box Of Many Buttons) out of the satellite TV loop.
