X2 on the loose connections. However, in the newer units, the satellite cable(s) are 'home runs" from UDC to wall plate (unless they hooked them up wrong at factory). Also, I think the RV industry is using orange coax for satellite so, it should be easy to figure which is satellite connection(s) by pulling the wall plates. Hope this helps some more.

That's what I thought also our is a 2013 Montana and has color coded dedicated lines for Ant. and Sat. or Cable, but for some reason that Ant. booster interferes with our Sat or Cable hookup. I traced the lines as best I could without tearing things apart and did find any reason for this either. Oh well, at least for us, I know to see where the switch is before unhooking cables'

Problem resolved

I did get the picture your UDC connections does not look at all like mine. All three of my coax connections in the UDC are on the back wall of the UDC none on the side with the dump valves. I finally took the whole darn thing apart so I could see all the coax connections in both the bedroom and living room. When I took the back off the UDC so I could see the coax connections. The two coax connections in the upper right of the UDC are for the sat connections top being the bedroom and the bottom one the sat connection for the living room. The coax connection lower down in the middle is for the cable. Thanks for everyone's help in resolving this issue a little labeling would go a long way to resolve this type of issue.

I went nuts with the lable maker myself too. Even on light switches because so many where clustered in the same cabinet by the entrance. But all in all I cannot complain as the unit has been great for me (even the few warrentee items where nothing to chaning my view of the RV.)

One of my plans before vacation is to install an outlet tied to a dimmer switch for the awning lights, and sort out my cable connection for the times where DirecTV is not possible due to line of site issues.

I have a 2014 3601 and have both orange cables hooked to satellite and two receivers and can't get bedroom to work. I've taken wall plates off and have tried even jumping through the cable coax and bypassing the splitter and using the tv antenna and can't get anything to work. Is there anyway to pull a new coax?
