Splitter is behind the tv and the sink. I accessed under kitchen sink. I put on all new ends and a new splitter. Had to run a new cable from there to the bedroom, had really bad reception.

I did put the outside tv on a pull out swivel mount, easier to view since it is mounted so high. Easier to get to the cabling too.

Young now I need to see your exterior mount mod.

Here are the Pics for the TV. As you can see I changed the TV to a LG Smart TV, changed the stereo and speakers. so I added a weather proof 32" tv cover from Amazon, just in case water was to get in the cabinet. The TV bracket is found here...Articulating Mounts for TVs Fit 32€ - 65€ Flat Panel Plasma Screens It folds up to a little over an inch thick, which worked out perfectly. Lastly i covered the holes behind the TV, This keeps the bugs out of the coach, you will see there are some large access panel behind the TV. I bought 1/8" plastic sheet on Amazon, cut and added stainless screws.

This is next on the list, did you reinforce the plastic mounting surface to accommodate the new mount?

My mounting box was metal, no reinforcing.

While sitting inside during a small storm here in the mountains of PA, I took the time to troubleshoot the tvs. Splitter under sink is no go, so I will replace this week. I will also be doing the exterior TV mod later in the week.
