Exterior TV on Georgetown

I have a 2009 357 and would like to hook up an outside TV. The switchbox has the capability for 3 TV's. I had always assumed that the connector in the storage bay 2 spaces aft entrance door was for an exterior TV hookup. Last night when I looked the coverplate said that it was for "Park Cable", the same thing that is on the connector in the far rear drivers side compartment that I do use to hook up park cable.

Is this the right hookup and it is just mislabeled or is there another one somewhere. I want to get this figured out before I go buy a TV.

Help is greatly appreciated.

The one on the driver's side rear is for Park Cable and the other on the passenger side baggage compartment is for the 3rd TV option. They just have the same type connector. I've used mine occassionally and it has worked fine.

TV and stereo mod for you

Attached are some pics of the exterior TV and stereo install that I did on my Georgetown 350SE TS. As you can see pretty simple, got the fabric from wallmart. If you want specifics just ask. I am using the 3rd cable outlet provided from the selector box in the coach. I installed an XBOX 360 below for the kids to really campout and feel the nature.. LOL

Your setup looks great. I also have a 350ds

So do you take out your TV when traveling?
How did you run cable to that compartment as the plus is in the compartment 1 over.
How did you run power to the compartment?
I would ove to see more pics of the install

I have been leaving the TV in there when traveling. So far, no problems with rain or outside elements. On the compartment to the right of tv, that's is where is the A/C and cable, this is where I also installed the XBOX 360. So you have to drill holes in the compartment linings to make the wire run. I used two 1" holes, if you want a real clean install do a 2" PVC pipe in between and caulk real good. The part that takes the most work is running 12 volt wires to the batteries below the steps. This is what I used to power the 12 volt stereo, this is nice because you can runthis without having AC hooked up, nice for a short stop or camp trip. We're actually on vaca at Mt Rushmore and we have the entire rig up at Horse Thief campground, everything is working great! We get allot of walk by's and good comments on the stereo and TV. Remember to get those kids away from there and be outside playing, walking and enjoying the nature!!

Awesome setup, my compliments to you and your fine handy work. I go to pick up my 379 ts tomorrow and have plans of doing a similiar outside hookup for TV, Xbox and stereo. Thanks for your sharing. Nice Rig.
