Any reason why I can't take the wall recepticle on the inside of the camper and reconfigure it so that I have my antenna signal split and running out to that jack on the outside, as well as wired to my tv inside? Seems logical. That way I wouldn't have to drill holes in anything......in theory. Anyone tried that? I'd gladly hang a cable under the TT each time I wanted to use the tv outside. Heck, I'd probably even just set the tv on a table so I don't have to hang a mount. I'm going to test this out this weekend. Wish me luck.

Thanks,
John
I did something similar. I have cable and sat connctors on the hookup side of my TT. I do use cable if it is available, but only use satellite on the outside TV. I bought a splitter, connected the output from the cable/ antenna amp, reconnected the feed to the interior TV and put the sat coax to the splitter. Now if I want to use cable or antenna I just throw a 20 foot piece of coax under the TT to the Television and connect to the sat plug at the hook ups.

I have purchased a cable jack and cover to install under the awning and have the coax to run, but I to am not looking forward to removing the cover under the TT to do this. I am just waiting to have another reason to remove the bottom cover.

Hope I made sense.

So I have looked again and I guess I am just missing something. Where is the exterior cable hookup on the 26tbud. I like the idea of being able to hook up the tv outside under the awning but don't see the coax hookup.
This is on a 2012 model, they surely didn't stop this feature did they.

Thanks in advance
Dave

Not my idea. Can't take the credit.

i have tried the x10 transmitter solution now. it works well transmitting the audio and video signal from a source with a video/audio output to a second set. the ir remote signals are linked as well.

biggest problem is that people walking around the transmitter and wireless devices tend to interfere. usually u can switch the channel on the x10 device and eliminate the wireless problems. people walking between the signal isn't as easy. i have my sat rec in the upper part because that is where my hi def tv is. the transmitted signal is send back to the tv in the living room. all inputs, cable and tv inputs to the tv remain normal.
as far as recommending it, it still leaves something to be desired. as long as someone doesn't move between the transmitter and receiver, it's fine. walls aren't a problem, just people moving around.

how to install exterior CATV hookup

I am in the same boat at KCcamper. bought a 2012 Tbud to find out it did not have an external hookup for CATV. This is my first camper, so anyone have some help on how I can install an external hookup. Not sure of key do's and don'ts when drilling holes, etc.
