Unhappy TV feed wiring diagram

We are talking about a 2014 335. I added satellite to my RV toys (a Tailgater from Dish). The installer took better than 2.5 hours to install and get it working. The big problem, according to the installer, was that must be splitters in the wiring, interfering with the signal within the cable wiring in the RV. There is a satellite input in the second bay, but that did not allow a "clean" signal to the TV.

At any rate, we were able to cobble together a decent picture using the cable input in the back "basement" area.

I am looking for a wiring diagram of the cable/antenna/satellite feed for the 335 so I can make this work like it is supposed to. Anyone have access to the wiring diagram for the TV feeds on a 335?

You say cobble a decent picture. There is no difference between the cable input and the sat input (both are RG6). If you are using cable out from your receiver then you will have SD picture. Need to use the HDMI out from your receiver to get HD TV. Unfortunately for most of us FR did not prewire HDMI cables. Can hook receiver at TV to TV input cable and HDMI from receiver to TV and have HD TV but without A-B switch (or similar) will have to disconnect receiver and reconnect cable to TV for park cable input. Of course all of this may be completely wrong.

If you are looking for a wiring diagram, contact the factory customer service. I have done this before with other brands. Don't know why FR wouldn't send you one.

On my 351DS I had a sim issue with Dish install. Ended up cutting center overhead cabinet back to gain access to a poorly installed splitter. Once we tightened everything up the picture came in clearly. Might be same issue (or not).

The actual SAT feed is on the roof under the vent cover that is located above the passengers side front. This vent cover is just a temp cover for future use if anyone wanted to add SAT dish on roof.
If you remove it you will find a coax end as well as 2 power leads that are not hooked up to any power yet.
Locate your antenna switch in one of your cabinets that SAYS Antenna, Cable and SAT.
This is where the SAT coax from the roof goes to.
If you have two TV yes you have a splitter and it is usually located behind the false cabinet wall where the 3 way switch is located. It will be attached to the output from the 3 way switch. You may be able to pull the coax and it may be close in the wall.

On my 2013 332 i was able to take the tv feed that goes outside to a compartment next to the entry door . If you look closely at the diagram you will see a spliter that feeds all the tv,s. I removed the cable at this point and extended it to my dish box. Now i just hook my portable antenna to the connector that was miss marked "cable" . Now great modifiction was required just a little cable wiring next to the tv.

I called forest river when trying to set up my carry out dish. They emailed me coax schematic the same day. I have gtown 351. Unfortunately the signal goes through a couple of splitters. Pre-pre-wearing with HDMI would have been nice
