I have a WallyBox receiver on top of the AS and Dish subscription. Most of the sites we camp at have trees and can't use it. Kinda frustrating. Learning now that we should not have opted for the roof mount. Thinking of a portable unit as backup while on extended trip coming up. How do I do that? Do I simply plug the portable satellite into the jack on the outside of AS? I know, I'm a dope...but I don't get it. What is that external satellite jack wired to?

Yes, you can plug the satellite into the SAT on the side. Look in your electronics compartment for the other end. Your existing connection will have to be taken off the back of the receiver. I have to admit, I do not know if AS provided a roof and side SAT cable, so the connection in the compartment could be the same.

Be aware when you first hook up to the wally, Dish recommends you run a direct line to the box (like thru your door) until everything is working at that location. I found the side connection worked for me most of the time when doing the setup. I have about 50' of cable on my portable outside dish. Very flexable when finding sats. I own the tripod also, but found you can just set it on level ground and get a great signal. And I'm from the east! Ohio
