Television in an A Frame?

It seems the cable TV outlet is located in different places, depending on the model.. in the A122 (2011) where is the outlet? I have looked at some photos closely.. and it looks like it may be under the microwave in the 2012.. but in a photo of the 2011.. it isnt there.

Also.. is there a TV antenna available for the a-frames? I like to camp in state parks and other places where electric is available.. but no cable TV.

On my A122 it is located below the microwave. I built a small shelf that fits on top of the microwave cabinet. It's about 8-10 inches tall and I set a 26 inch LCD tv on top. Under the shelf I have my dish network DVR on which I have access to a bunch of preloaded TV shows and movies. I could bring a DVD player but the DVR is more convinient. I am thinking of getting the Tailgater satelite system from Dish network in future.

There it is, under the microwave, the same location as in our A126. This picture also shows the porta potti you have been wondering about.

Here is a "front view" pic of the location.

If you are wondering where the cable hookup is located on the exterior, Gary told me that ours is on the driver's side, toward the rear.

dont know why this trailer has a cable outlet in the first place ...
we have never used ours .. and never will. We are rely heavily on downloads/internet for our entertainment, a fairly high end laptop, and external drives. Movies, series, and your favorite shows can be all there, without excess weight and space.
Thats how we do it .. on long trips ... and also use phone hardware devices for calling home for free .
Chuck ... the location of the cable outlet strongly depends on the build date of the A122 that your purchasing. The earlier units had the cable put next to the electrical outlets next to the bed. If you check your build date of the unit, and you dont find the cable outlet under the the micro .. the unit was built in 2010 ...

The coax connector comes in handy if you are in a campground that has free cable tv.
