"But there is this cylindrical shaped opening that has metal around the inside and the back that looks like something should plug into it. "

Don't worry about that opening ---- just attach your coax to the coax fitting, turn on the booster (green light on) and then attach your coax to the TV. On your TV select the correct source (Antenna or Air) and then search for available channels.

If you have access to cable at your campground, you'll need another coax to attach to the post at the CG and run to your trailer. Inside at the antenna fitting that your cax is attached to, turn off the booster and then select the correct source on your TV (Cable) and then search for available channels ----------

12 volt plug fits the big hole, cable hooks to the small silver threaded one by the button.

That's it! Now I also know what that writing says around that damn opening! Mine is in the ceiling, backwards when I'm trying to read it and black plastic, couldn't make it out. lol

The hole is for a 12 volt plug as said by 4mula1fan. It was meant to be used if you have or are going to purchase a tv that can operate off of 12 volt instead of 110. They still make them, have an led one. This will allow you to use the tv when you are dry camping or boon docking.

Mine is a 2015, the round saucer antenna on the roof won't pick up a thing for me. I had camping world try it but they are in Nashville Tn and they said it picked up fine for them.

I camp 25miles from nearest station and nothing.

I bought a cheap magnet mount short rubber antenna that had high reviews from amazon and put it on a length of cable from the cable connection on the outside of the trailer and stick the magnet base on the rear rack or the top of the tow vehicle.

Then with the booster button off perform a channel search on the tv. It picks up 4 to 9 channels depending on placement of the little antenna outside.

As info

cable already connected at antenna and runs to the back of the 12v booster panel......The large hole is for a 15 cig lighter plug to run an accessory...nothin to do with TV......There may be two screw like silver terminals on panel.....One marked TV another satelite......Connect a coax cable from TV to back of TV.....Turn on booster and TV......You may have to program TV to pick up any channels using menue on TV remote.....also change source to antenna NOT cable... Good Luck!!!,,,J
