Setup RV park cable in my backyard

We live in a popular downtown area and Airbnb our RV while we're not using it. I ran water, sewer, coax, Ethernet and 30amp out to the back yard where we park. Everything works except I can figure out how to have all my cable channels to all 3 of my TVs.

We have Comcast and it's football season so I upgraded my cable package for renters, but do I run the cable into a Comcast box underneath in storage? Do I put the cable box behind the main tv?

First thing you need to find out is if all 3 tv's are set up to receive your cable. Some are set up separately and need a box at each tv. If not you'll need to do that. Some may need AB switch box.

If you put the box at the main cable input you can watch Comcast on all the TV's but it will be the same channel on each.

Did they change the cable wiring? The cable input in the rear drivers side compartment used to be wired to the tv in the living area only.
Smart move it they did change it.

I have used it before. Unless I ****ed something up and just thought it was working with the campground cable.

There are two splitters behind the power button for the TV antenna. I was under the impression the outside ran to there and combined with the antenna cable to distribute everywhere

GM,

Cable at campgrounds is analog. Cable at your home is digital which is why you need a box to receive signals.

In order to receive cable channels at all of TVs in your RV, you'll need a box at each on.

Or as someone said earlier, if you put a box at the input connection for your RV, you'll only be able to see the same channel on all TVs.

Use Coax out

I have the latest comcast equipment and the box has a VHF out (not HDMI but a decent signal). I send the HDMI to my primary TV and split and amplify the VHF to various TVs throughout the house. The splitters are cheap. It also runs out to the driveway for the RV. Of course you watch whatever is on the primary TV
