I'm thinking that could be it as well. It could have been damaged when the bracket was replaced. I'll try that when we get back home and see if that takes care of the problem.

Usually with cable when you get one you get them all.
May as well try it, either that was it or its elimanated.

With only 8 channels at 2 camp sites I'm thinking maybe only your antenna is receiving channels and somewhere it's not switched to cable.

Is there a antenna/cable switch somewhere?

I'm grasping at straws here.

Oh, I just thought, some TVs have 2 threaded connections at the back. One is CATV and the other is an out to a component. Make sure your coax is in the CATV. More straws.

We go to one campground that supplies cable where main tv will program but bedroom tv needs one of their converter boxes.

Ok today we got to a new campground and I tried to get the cable to work. Still no luck. This time I bypassed the interior cable hook up and used a different coax cable that I know works. Connected it to the wall and to the TV. Still can't get the correct cable channels. For some reason it is still only pulling from the antenna. It's almost as if it needs a reset to pull through cable channels.

Year and model of the Rpod? I used to have one and would like to help.

I recall there being two coax connections behind/above the TV, one for SAT and one for Cable. Maybe try swapping.

And the TV is set for cable....? How about hooking up from pedestal direct to TV, and not using any other cable....skip trailer wiring for now...

cABLE CONNECTIONS

Do you have a 90 elbow on the back of the TV where the cable connects to TV? I had a problem with mine where it was the 90 elbow was bad. A small wire in the elbow was broken. Lowes carries the elbow.
Try removing the elbow, connect the coax direct to the TV.

Some TV's can be reset by disconnecting power cord for a few minutes.

To switch between Antenna and cable you must find the power supply/source switcher button on the wall plate.

Push till power light comes ON -> source is roof antenna
Push till power light goes OFF -> source is cable TV


Once you have selected a source; you still need to search for channels.
