PT Crusader 351 cable TV confusion!
We are on the road right now, and have come across what might be a cable issue, or an issue with my understanding of what may be going on. With rain the past couple days, we are trying to watch TV but itís not going so well. Here is what I have found so far.
The bedroom TV has one coax cable hookup that comes out the side of the dresser. When I look inside the dresser, that cable is grey.
The living room tv: now that is interesting. It has 2 coax cable hookups. When I go in behind the fireplace this is what I can see: There is one coax faceplate that has what looks like a booster(?) as part of it has a button with a green light that can be switched on/off. In behind that faceplate has a white and grey coax cable going into it. The second coax faceplate is a standard one, and when I look in behind it, has an orange cable going into it.
In my hook up area (where the water, etc is) there are 2 coax cable inlets. Neither is marked and I cannot see what color of cable is hooked into these behind there.
The campground has cable TV available, I do not have a satellite, and of course the trailer has an antenna.
I went to Walmart last evening and bought a splitter and 2 short coax cables, thinking that I would use them outside in the hook up area: Have the campground cable go the splitter, then to both coax inlets, thinking I would get equal signals to the bedroom and main room TVísÖÖÖÖWrong!
No matter what combo Iím playing with, the bedroom TV is terrible and looks like itís getting an antennae signal only. The main room TV only gets a clearer cable signal when I use the faceplate that has the orange cable in behind it. The faceplate with the booster is not good for the main room TV as it seems to only catch an antenna signal.
Am I missing something? What are the 2 cable inlets in the hookup area? Why isnít my bedroom TV getting any good signal? My manual does not cover how this trailer is setup for cable so I am only guessing at what is going on.
