So, while trying to find the end of your sat. coax....it should be orange.
Hope this helps.

Ugh!!! I wish the separate divisions would get their crap together! I have to make a correction. I took another look behind the scenes in my 5er & discovered I have black, grey, white & orange coax. I assumed...(I know, I know) that since 4 colors are used, they each had their designated purpose in the RV industry.....yeah right!!
After my second look today I have the following;
White is my main feed from the roof OTA antenna
Grey is my main feed from my Park Cable connection outside
Orange is my satellite (2 home runs) feed to living room & bedroom from outside
Black runs from the 2nd Tv port on the amplifier to a splitter which then runs to the bedroom Tv and 3rd Tv in the basement storage for OTA antenna or park cable depending on if amplifier is on or off.
So, I guess each manufacturer/division does their own thing when it comes to cabling & wiring. Which is why there are never and printed schematics when you need one.
