The SatPrep outside the coach has seperate inputs for each room. Depends on how many TVs you originally have equipped. I found that if you pull the outside plate on my FZ, the RG6 cable is 3 colors. One is white, one gray, one tan. I pulled the inside wall plates for each TV to validate each color at each TV. They actually labeled my outside SatPrep plate and surprisingly it is correct! Am I missing something or why can't you hook sat to the cable input and have sat at any TV you want based on your receiver location of course??

If you have a cable TV hookup in the Entegra, you can use the cable lead from the outside to the inside, just mount the satellite receiver at the TV end and the necessary cables from the receiver to the TV. There are many ways but now knowing what you have already limits the possibility for knowing what you already have, i. In most cases, you cannot use the cable connection.
If you have a wall plate with a tiny push button that turns on your OTA TV antenna then it is likely this switch also is used to bring in the cable signal when that light is off. If that's the case you cannot use that connection without some wiring modifications. Some coaches have a 2nd input out by the Cable In connection labeled Satellite In.
If you have one of those connections then it is a direct connection.
You can also run a new dedicated coax to where you want to install a satellite receiver or, if you have a connection for an outside TV that you do not use you may be able to use that connection as a run to the receiver. Much depends upon the layout of the coach, how the wiring runs to the various TV's and were a receiver is expected to be located.

Kaypsmith, Thanks for the feedback. I have a cable hookup in the coach. The product I am trying to hookup is a Dish Tailgater with a Wally receiver. I hook the Tailgater into the coach and the Reciever to the tv. Something is preventing setup from finishing.
Cable comes in fine, but satellite will not connect. I have contacted a technician to come to my coach for help with this issue. I have hooked this system up every way possible with no luck. Thanks again for your assistance. I will let you know what the issue was. Have you contacted Dish to activate your receiver? I have the Tailgater if I don't use at least once every few weeks I have to contact them to reactivate the receiver. I have simple splitter that is connected to the end of the input cable.
The motorhome also has a era Winegard "bat wing" antenna which does an OK job of acquiring over-the-air TV broadcast signals.
