Yes, I took a few and meant to do a write-up for the Files Section - just haven't done it yet.

Was there something in particular you're looking for?

Do you get OTA signal in the bedroom? If you don't then maybe the coax is not hooked up to the wall plate. On my TT the bedroom coax was not hooked up. I took the wall plate off, fished around for the coax and screwed it into the wall plate. Worked fine after that. Hope that's all your problem is.

Do you mean install the wiring, power, and mounting hardware for an outside TV when none is currently there, or do you already have an outside TV that only offers Cable or Antenna and you want to get Satellite outside?

I have a RGB-6 connector and a 110v recipital inside a cargo door. But nothing else... I believe the cable connector is for antenna or basic cable only.

Is OTA mean Other Than Antenna?

That's similar to mine. On the outside wall under the awning, I have a coax connector, a 120v outlet AND a special mounting bracket that holds the supplied TV.

Without any mods (except to mount the TV) you can watch Broadcast programs via the antenna or the park cable tv.

If you want to watch Sat TV outside you'll need the mod I did. I'll try to do adetailed writeup soon.

does the 318bhs LaCrosse have the yellow RCA plug outside also, or just the coax?

Ok, I checked and it is just the coax. I bought an RF converter and plan to convert the DVD output to coax and run it out to the outside connection when we want to watch a DVD whilst sitting outside.
