Tv connections

Recently purchased a 2003 28' Cardinal. When checking tv connectors I found 2 in the spot for the tv. One has a Winegard connector which I assume is the antenna and the other has a homemade label that says "satellite". Could this connector be for either cable or satellite? One the outside there two coax connectors, one for satellite and one for cable.
Thanks....Bob

The SAT/AUX is a direct to the outside connection (provided it is even used). The outside jack says SAT on it.

The Bottom one is your TV1 Output from the amp. It is THE ONLY connection that gives access to roof antenna (amp power on) and can also give access to campground CABLE using the outside CABLE jack (amp power ON).

See attached manual.

To add to herks comment...
The sat connection coax rarely goes to any other room other than the main tv.

Thanks to all of you. With your input I did some more research and found out that the Winegard wall plate functions as follows: the single coax connector is for antenna when the amp switch is on and is for cable when switch is off. The large connection is a 12 volt ( cigarette lighter ) output for powering a tv or whatever you might have that uses 12 volts.
Thanks to all....Bob

Just watch what you plug in to that 12 volt outlet.
I think it is fused at 8 amps. (96 watts)

Your wall plate manual is included in this publication.
