Here is a wiring diagram of the coax distribution in your RV:

I have included in this diagram the red lines which show how you need to connect the Channel 3-4 (coax) output of the Vip211k receiver back into your system.

The "Set 2" output from your antenna booster control plate goes into that secondary splitter. Just put your Sat receiver output into that splitter instead. Here's a picture of the back of the antenna booster control so you can tell which wire is the "Set 2" output. You can use an AB Switch to make this easier to reconfigure when you want to deliver off-the-air signals instead.

Just connect your outside TV to the coax output in your photo then.

I don't know how the video cables are wired in your RV. It seems like you should be able to do that to get video outside. Perhaps the audio then comes they your Concertone system (which perhaps has outside speakers?).

Did you set the switch on that panel in your photo to the Sat position? Does the Sat audio come out thru the system speakers?

I am trying to go from my satellite receiver(video output for TV2) to one of these to use existing wiring in the camper to go

to the video jack here

That 'TV Video out' plate...is it a coax or RCA connection. I can't really tell on my dark monitor? What does that go to?

To chime in here. On my old camper that had the outside yellow video output, that was from the Genesis system, for watching DVD video outside and the outside speakers would then supply the audio. The coax, is part of the regular ota antenna system. To use the yellow output, you probably need to access three rear of the AV system. There are extra AV inputs, do you can run to these from the sat.

Hope this helps

I will try tomorrow using the set 2 diagram. The audio is going through the concertone unit, I do have the switch set to the sat position.

I feel like I led you astray from what you were trying to do (use the RCA jack) which should work just fine. I apologize.

The missing piece may be that you haven't set the Concertone unit to the proper input source. Focus on getting the sound from the Sat receiver on your speakers first. Then the outside RCA video jack should work.

It may also be that the receiver doesn't output signal on the RCA video outputs when you have the HDMI cable connected to it, so try removing that to start with.

Barry, your input, as well as all the others is appreciated. It made me think of other things to try that I did not try to start off with. I do have sound coming from my A,B & C(outside) speakers. The concertone plays TV audio through AV1 setting, even with the sound coming through the concertone and all speakers I still cannot get video on the TV outside. My concertone only works with the remote and it powers on and off on its own, so I am thinking it may be the whole issue since concertone is a total peice of s*^%. I did not think of the HDMI cable, I will hook up the receiver with RCA cables instead of the HDMI cable and give that a shot this afternoon after work. Worse case I have to bring my camper in on the 6th so I will question them what jack on the inside by the TV goes to the outside output jacks. If nothing else I will install RCA cables myself and have them come out of my front storage, just hate to drill holes in the camper you know.

I think the sound coming from your speakers on the AV1 setting is from your TV. Turn off the main TV and find a setting (AV2?) that gives you TV sound from the Sat receiver directly (eg, when the main TV is OFF).

Using RCA plugs to connect your main TV to the receiver won't have any effect on this. Just leave that as HDMI (but unplug HDMI from the receiver for this test). The RCA plugs need to go from the receiver to that wall plate you showed in your picture.
