What the heck is that for?

I believe this is the answer:


...but you would only use this if you're happy with the 'RF modulated (ch 3/4)' hookup for getting the picture to the tv. If you want to take advantage of the better picture quality your satellite system is capable of, use an HDMI cable to connect the satellite receiver to the tv (assuming the tv is HDMI capable). Either way, you'd still remove the loop so you could connect the satellite receiver to the DISH via the trailer wiring.

You probably have something like this located behind your main TV.

It is a satellite/cable connection plate.

The way it is "supposed to work" is you connect the satellite receiver or the cable input to the rear outside connector on your RV, Then go inside, remove the jumper between the two coax connectors, install a coax from the lower connector to your cable decoder box or satellite receiver IN on the back of the receiver. Then connect the receiver OUT to the top connector on the plate. TURN OFF the Winegard booster switch and you "should" have satellite or cable input through the system to the main TV. Whether there are splitters in the system to feed other televisions in the RV is an individual RV question.

Here's the satellite connection plate as it came from your dealer. If you connect to cable and don't need a "cable decoder box" then leave the jumper in place.

I too have a 2400 BH. I do have a "cable" hookup in the back of the camper. But I've found that the outside hookup does not work for a satellite system. It is a different coax that carries each signal. I have thought about drilling through and putting that connection on the inside of my trailer. Have not yet done it, but would love to hear how all this goes for you.
