Can I get TV signal from TV in camper to outside video jack

I have a 2011 Puma Unleashed 356QLB with a concertone ZX700/"entertainment system"(I use that term loosely)that barley works with the remote. I am wondering if it is possible to keep my TV inside the camper and place another TV outside and watch the same program/game that is on in the camper through the video jack that is mounted outside? I tried this weekend to accomplish this task to no avail. Is it possible that my awesomely awesome piece of junk concertone zx700 is the culprit for not allowing me to do this? If it is possible, could someone let me know how it is done?

Are you talking about the cable and/or sat coax jack on the outside of your trailer?

OK, that is actually an input jack to allow you to hook up to cable (for parks that offer it) and/or portable satellites..........to view on the television inside your RV.

Some RV's do come pre-wired with an output jack that has an outlet on the outside to hook up another television.

I will find some wiring schematics to show you how it goes in to the RV , thru the antenna booster, to the television.

If you don't have an outside output jack (not the cable/sat input), Do you have a coax outlet in the bedroom of your trailer? If so, you could hook a coax cable into it, and run it to the outside of your trailer to hook into an outside television.

Could you post a picture of that outside connection? If it takes RCA plugs, it's not the park-cable connection.

I am sorry I did not specify, the RCA video jack and cable connector are not to hook up for park service. The cable and satellite connectors (inputs) are at the rear of my camper. The connectors in question are the ones by the main door(opposite side) under the outside TV mounting bracket. I was watching the satellite (Dish network) and was trying to get the signal outside.

OK, that helps a lot in understanding this. Can you help a little more?

If I understand this (am still speculating), you have a satellite (Dish) outside the RV, probably hooked up to the cable/sat-in connection at the back of your trailer. How do You have a DISH receiver box connected to your inside TV and to the outside satellite dish?

That is correct. I have the winegard carryout auto acquire antenna and I connect it to the satellite input at the back of the camper. Inside I have the receiver connected to the AUX/SAT plate and the receiver is connected to the TV by a HDMI cable. When I bring the big tv outside I hook up the antenna directly to the receiver and TV, I do not use the antenna port or video port outlets on the outside of the camper. I am trying to avoid bringing my big TV that is mounted on the swivel bracket outside and bring my 22 inch flat-screen we have in our bedroom outside, it is quicker and easier.

Wow; this is very confusing.

Since it makes no difference (that I can see) which TV you bring outside, I'm concluding that you are trying to avoid bringing your Sat receiver outside (since it's connected to the big TV).

If I've got that right, then it sounds like what you want to do is to connect the modulator output of the receiver (coax output, assuming it have as one) into the cable system in your RV so it will feed all of the TVs (including the jack outside).

I will give more information on how to do that once you verify that I've guessed correctly at what you're really trying to do.

You are 100% correct. I can connect the 2nd TV to the receiver with a RCA cable, but in order to avoid running a RCA cable out a window,through the door etc. I would like to connect it to the outside video output. Sorry for the confusion but you did figure it out.
