A bit OT but we have a Rockwood Minilite with Furrion TV. We are at a campground with cable TV, a scam brings up 130 some RF channels but I am unable to figure out how to watch them. It keeps saying do channel scan--which I've done about 10 times. It finishes a channel scan and tells you to do one again, about ready to throw it out LOL.

This is the second trip out with trailer--I'm actually pretty techy but this has me flummoxed. The first time it suddenly (not sure what I changed--we have booster off, cable selected). The campground has Comcast--cable is connected to trailer, I have TV select3d (choice is TV, air, HDMI and PC)--any help greatly appreciated.

We are thinking it has something to do with the replacement of the bracket. Did we hit some wiring in the wall? We have the RPOD in to have the decals replaced and have asked them to check the TV and see if they can find the source of the problem.

We replaced the cable, and the other connections and even went so far as to bring in another 19" TV to test with and still no cable.

I'm thinking what I could do would be to just link the cable up from the outside source directly to the TV and bypass all the internal wiring in the RPOD and it should work as a temporary solution.

Coincidentally I hooked up tonight at a campground in Santa Fe, and the exact thing happened to me. Worked fine at home, but the cable took a beating over the 950 miles it took me to get here and got kinked at the end where it connects to the tv. I'd start by subbing out with some known good cables.

I wanted to post a reply that we got a solution to our cable problem. We were having a replacement decal installed on our door and I had the tech take a look at the cable problem. Turns out there is a short in the Cable to cable connector from the outside to the inside, which is why we could not get the cable to work. If I move the outside to satellite and the inside to satellite as well the problem is solved and we have cable.

When we get back from our latest trip I'm going to have the cable issue resolved as it should be under warranty.

The sat to sat was the only one we did not try when we were doing all the configurations.

Okay now

We went to an RV park in western NC this past week with new ends on the coax cable, spouse having checked and tightened wires behind walls--both done with recommendation of our dealer--and voilá--good cable all week. Don't know whether the new connecting ends on the cable or the tightening of the wires inside the trailer did it but it appears corrected.
