This 19' came with a 1000 watt inverter built in and there is an outlet near the TV arm below the fridge that goes to it. The way the shelf was built-in for the SAT TV receiver, it can plug directly into the outlet on the inverter.
We rewired from the inverter to the batteries and added an inline fuze so the full 1000 watts can be delivered if needed.
I am not sure what the DISH Receiver draws, but the TV is pretty low I think.
In any case, it seems to work, and of course when we have hook ups, it is not an issue.
(BTW, I am camped in CanyonDam CA near Lake Almanor, came up for a little trout fishing. Had a nice fresh trout breakfast today!)
