What is DSS

I am a new owner of a Wildwood 21rbs ( two months) we had the chance to go camping where the rv park had cable TV offered..when i tried to hookup the cable wire i found two outside plugs, 1. had no markings 2. was marked with large letters DSS.

when i tried to connect the cable wire to the unmarked plug i received zero channels.. then i connected to the DSS plug and received approx 14 channels..

the problem is that we wanted to use the cable plug in the front of the camper near the bed, which is unmarked and we received zero channels.

i however was able to receive 3 channels from my batwing on top of the trailer

question is; doesn't the front plugin receive cable also or only channels from the onboard antenna?

and what is DSS

thank you for any help

Normally the cable option only goes to main tv.
