How do I connect to the antenna?

ok I give up! First time trailer owner, picked up Monday. I can't figure out what kind of connection I need to plug into the antenna on the roof! I know where the booster button is and there is a 'port' there that seems it will accept some sort of plug but I just haven't been able to figure this out. What do I need to connect the antenna to my TV?

I have a 2016 26DBH Grey Wolf. TV is just a 32" LED I picked up from Best Buy for the trailer so just standard TV.

Can you upload a picture of the port so we can see what you are trying to connect to?

Should just be a piece of coax cable screwed on the little threaded stub on the "booster" plate. Then screw the other end on the back of the tv...

Does it use the same output as the cable/sat then (I only have one input ont he outside? Push button on for antenna and off it is cable/sat signal?

Here is what I have in my ceiling. The coax output with the little on/off button. But there is this cylindrical shaped opening that has metal around the inside and the back that looks like something should plug into it.

The big hole is for a 12 volt plug, like a lighter plug.
