how do I switch between cable and antenna?

Ok this is the first time we've camped where we have cable TV. I have the cable wire connected but not getting the signal to the tv. I looked behind it and there is 1 cable wire coming in that is split to the 2 TVs. I think I remember the dealer telling me something about it but can't remember or find it. If anyone knows where it is or what I need to do I would appreciate it.

Thanks.
I did have it set to cable mode and I don't find an antenna booster switch or plug anywhere. Does anyone know where this is on a forester?

If you have the swing arm TV up front the antenna booster is on the wall behind the tv. A little push button, if the LED is lit the booster is on. The boost is usually near the cable connection to the tv

AS KJcachers said, it's where the cable from the TV goes to the wall connection. It is hidden by the cable and the 12v power plug is right above it. TV roof antenna should not be lit up.

Ah ha! I do have one of those in the cabinet next to the TV. That was it. Thanks all for the quick responses.

Kicking back now!
