Did you scan the channels? Each place you go, you have to scan the channels. Or do you not even get the "snowy thing."

You want to watch TV? Go inside. The rest of us in the CG don't want to listen to your choice of programs! If TV is that important to you, maybe the RV lifestyle isn't what you should be indulging in.

I love our outside tv .....
I've never heard anyone make a statement like this


To the op.
If you only have rca cables the u can only "to my knowledge" watch dvds from the main tv.
My outside tv has a rca jack for ota tv and yellow rca jack to watch dvds from inside .
Weird.

I'm with the others- I think that was pretty harsh. Outdoor TV, like outdoor music, dogs, kids and heck even knocking back a few all come down to one thing: have respect for each other. Be mindful that we all have our own ways and try not to impose on your neighbor.

To the OP- I have no clue about your inquiry, unfortunately. I have cable hookups outside of my camper, I've just never used them.

Wow, a little to hard!
We're here to help each others, i will dare if someone say something about my tv outside when my kids are watching a movie, I KNOW the camping rules and also consider my fellow campers at the campgrouds and I've never complained about dogs barking at 6/7am. People bring dogs, tv's, radios, that's everyone choice.

To the OP, if your tv does not have an antenna conected, (coax cable) maybe that's the problem.
