Cable/TV Coax Schematic

Rig: Coachmen Catalina Trailblazer 26THS.


Anyone have a schematic of how the Coax cables are routed on this rig?

Probably not.
Wiring/plumbing schematics are few and far between from the factory.

What year?
Did you contact the factory by chance?

Sorry, it's a 2018.
No, I haven't contacted the company. Not even sure how to.

Are you turning the amp off on the main coax panel if you have one?

If your rig uses the same wire to feed the TV for both OTA Antenna AND Cable, there is usually a wall plate with the cable that hooks to the main living area TV. On that plate, there is usually a very small button and a small light.

Hook your cable up to the camper, and then press that button to turn the light off and see if that gets your cable working. Light on is OTA Antenna, Light off is cable. Generally. Campers now a days with some of the new antenna systems are doing things a little different sometimes but that used to be a semi-standard way it worked.

When hooked up to cable, I'll get a very fuzzy, unwatchable, picture with the amplifier turned off.


I suspect the cable is shorted to ground or something.


I say this because I had a 110v outlet shorted on day one.

...are you sure it's not the park's cable itself?


test this by using a coax cable and going directly from the park cable connection to a TV itself....

Yes, I've done that and everything works fine when you bypass the camper itself.
