Park cable/sat cable

I'm new to the forum.
I have a 2015 Salem Hemisphere 300BH
I have my satellite hooked in the sat hook up on the rear. I want to use the park cable side (given there is cabling in there) to run as outputs instead. Is there a main area where these are located to access for me to run splitters? I want use my receiver in the living room to play the same thing outside.

I don't know your specific trailer but most are set up the same. There is an antenna input plus a cable input and they feed two TV outputs. They meet, typically, in the ceiling or high on an inside wall at the signal amplifier. It will be a little box about the size of an electric switchplate but a lot thicker. It will have a little button on it to turn the amplifier on/off.

If I'm understanding you correctly, that's the spot you're looking for ---- you'll remove that amplifier and you can replace it with your outgoing splitters.

Maybe I don't understand ---- if you send a signal out using the already installed cabling that you'll find at that point, your out connection is going to be on the backside of your trailer. You'll want it on the front side won't you??? I suppose you could just toss a long coax under the trailer??

I'll check that out. I have the amplifier switch plate behind my lr tv. I just want to switch things around. I want a tv in my outside kitchen, and right next to it is a "park cable"hookup. I want to utilize that as an signal output from my lr cable box receiver instead.

We just got back from a week of camping where I gave up on the TV, assuming there was no reception where I was. I figured it out when I got home, at least I think.? On the amplifier there are two connections I switch the wire from the TV to the other connector and I did get reception from the antenna so I assume that one connection is for cable the other for the antenna.

Won't work....cable splitters in way....sat. is all by itself from dish to receiver. After receiver, with a sat splitter, it'll work. The splitter you need are carried by HD and Lowes. After leaving receiver, before tv, is where splitter needs to be.
