2012 Silverback 35QB4 External Cable/Satellite Outlets

Okay, just picked up our new fifth wheel and we are getting it prepped and loaded for the season - stupid question - I obviously wasn't paying enough attention when I took delivery, but WHERE DO I FIND the Cable/Satellite outlets on the outside of the unit?

Help?!

We have different floorplans but I would think your's would be in the same general location as mine, in the area with all the hookups.

Here's a picture of where mine is located. You can see that our cable is connected just under the outside shower faucets.

Thanks Oakman - could not see the "Forest" for the trees - it was right in front of my eyes! Gave a great weekend!

We have a new 2013 35QB4 and we have a half acre we park on for the season. We have a satellite dish in a tree that we connect to the trailer through the satellite connector in the docking station. Inside at all the tv locations there is a "Satellite" connection but only in the main living area there is a "cable / aux" connector which is the only place my satellite hook up works.

I presume the other locations in the trailer that have the "satellite" connector is for the intended roof mounted system. Is there any way to get my satellite signal to all TV locations inside?

Slightly OT - but your photo gives me an oportunity to ask a simple question. I have a 2012 29rk and my compartment is the same as yours.

My question is -why did/does FR locate the switch for the hook -up lights (those two LED lights located in the nose cap) in this compartment?

For those of you who don't know what I am speaking of - the switch in question is just to the right of the outdoor shower faucets (on the wall).

It seems to me that a more logical location for the switch would be in the battery/landing gear switches compartment. That way you could turn them on/off when and if you need to adjust the landing gear at night.

Thanks for posting your photo and giving me a chance to ask this question.

I have to agree with you B47 I thought it was a strange location for that switch too.

I can't help you but if you find out let me know. We just bought a DISH tailgater for satellite RV.

I connect mine using hdmi cables. I use a two way splitter behind my directv receiver and then run cables to each tv

Thank you for the response. I was hoping to be able to use the existing in wall wiring as it has to be set up to send a signal to each TV..... even if I have to have a receiver on each TV.
