Removed Direct tv Trav'ler Replaced with Dish Trav'lr

Just purchased a 2013 Journey 36M that had a factory installed trav'ler for Direct TV. I am on Dish and had the opportunity to buy a take of Travler that was for Dish.

The Direct TV was not a SIM style but am told i need to find the Direct TV splitter and power unit. Have opened up the compartment above the door where their is a lot of coax cables but can not find anything.

Anyone have recommendations where to look?

Problem I am having is my receiver is not getting any signal from the dish.

This is an area where I find folks do lots of mods over time so it may not be as planned but this is the set of drawings as the coax was to be built:
It has eight different layouts that depends on what features/options your specific RV came with, so compare what you have with the right part of the drawing for what to expect and then for where it was located, this parts catalog does a great job of letting you "see through the walls" to find things without tearing it down.

SWM Splitter might be on the roof. The power for it is probably inside your coach near where the wires from the Traveler come inside from the roof.

I have a Trav'ler for Dish and would like to switch to Directv, would you be interested in trading satellite dishes?
