Cable hook up at campground

Help!!! I just bought a 2015 surveyor cadet 294. None of my connections seem to work. I have to connections outside simply marked cable/satellite. Inside I have connections labelled satellite and tv 1, and then a sat 1 and sat2. I've tried both connections outside and all inside and nothing. I'm losing my mind!

The factory has been known to mis-wire the inside plate. Try cable outside and then connect to satellite inside. If it works, pop off the inside plate and switch the coax.

I connected to cable outside and tried all inside connections. Then outside sat and all inside connections and still nothing. Changed tv input from air to cable and still no dice. I guess tomorrow when it's not freezing I'll take apart some stuff and chase wires.

After changing inputs did you re search stations?

And, just to make sure- was your antennae booster off?

And finally- have you tested the campground's cable connection directly with just a wire and a TV?

The booster is not just a signal amplifier, its a switch that selects between the rooftop antenna and the sidewall cable connection in order to route either signal via a single cable to the TV. The green light must be off to use the sidewall cable input. And, yes, a channel rescan on the TV will probably be necessary too.

At first the switch was on, then after researching I turned it off but it made no difference. I've not tried connecting directly to the tv. I will later today.

Also check the TV set up for input such as HD1 etc.
