It is strange that there is no external coax connection. It must have been a manufacturing oversight. It just does not make sense otherwise.

I know this probably doesn't help, but on my first TT (2010 Keystone Passport), they put the male cable connector under the license plate at the bottom. It wasn't inside a protective box like my current TT. It just had a rubber cap on it for protection. It was a pain to screw the coax cable on with the license plate there.

I have seen the cable connection one the driver side in what looks like a waterproof box near the front or near the rear, under the rear left quarter, or inside a left side compartment. It may or may not be covered by a box.

Thanks for all of the replies. Here's the update after looking in all the places you all have suggested. And, you all are right, for some reason they didn't go over this and we didn't think to ask when we did our pick-up of the camper.

So, I went to the dealer we bought from today to get them to show it to me on another of the same model they had in stock. Turns out, it is like an option on a car and the specific one we bought does not have it. They said that sometimes they still put in the double coax outlet on the inside but there wouldn't be anything connected to the top "satellite" connector. And they were right. I pulled the plate off the wall when I got home and there is no wire connected to the top. So the dealer gave me an outside connection plate so I can make a connection myself. Just have to drill a hole big enough to run the wire and three screw size mounting holes. So, it looks like my outside connection will be near the camper's front door. I don't really like that but I don't know what else to do.

If you really need it, I would see if there is any way to run some RG-6 cable from the plate through the interior and back to the rear driver's side corner and mount the input box there. That would be a lot cleaner than having the cable hanging off the camp side front wall.

I know it is not the same, but.

The white cap hanging down is where mine is located.

Wildcat puts a cable line and a satellite line in area of the water hook up panel.

Barton's, you are correct. The tv and signal booster are standard on your model but the website for FR shows under options "cable and satellite ready". Bummer, sorry u didn't get that as standard equipment. Good luck with your upgrade however, shouldn't be too much trouble.

On our Georgetown MH (an '02) it was on the aft wall of the stow-bin bay where the electrical hook-ups were. There was also a phone jack to hook up to a campground phone line (probably extinct nowadays!)
