TV hookup

I have a 2011 F.R. Salem and I am trying to figure out the television hookup. It came with a flat screen that is plugged in and has a coax to the antenna/booster. The trailer has a cable hookup outside, I am assuming that when you plug in the cable at a park it over rides the antenna? My 2003 Sandpiper had two coax jacks, one for antenna and one for cable or satellite. I just had to move the coax inside from one jack to the other.

It does not appear that I can hookup satellite through this port, so can anyone give me a hint as how to do that?

One last question, next to the antenna connection there are two RC jacks, one red and one white. I thought these were to hook the TV up to the trailers external speakers. So far I can't see how they work for anything. Any information?

As far as using the antennae or cable, if you are using the antennae, make sure your booster is on. If you are plugged into a campground cable system, turn your booster off.

Others will have to help with satellite hookups.....I haven't the foggiest.

BTW, welcome to the forum !!!

To switch from Antenna and cable go to the menu on the tv itself. For antenna it will do a scan for channels. when you hook to to cable at sites that have cable the campground should give you a channel guide when you check in.Like others have said when you use the antenna make sure the booster is on and I look at the other trailers in the park and see which way thier antennas are pointed.
