Cable Hookup on 2004 Wildwood LE?

Traveling to a campground that has cable hookup service but cant find a way to bring the outside cable hookup to the camper/tv. Any ideas?

Year make and model of camper may help you get answers.
It should or may have a cable/satellite hook up

Does this trailer have the plastic box that the power cable is stuffed into when not in use. This is the easiest place to run a coax cable into your trailer. On our old Triple E fifth wheel I drilled a hole through the plastic and installed a barrel in the hole. Ran a cable from the barrel to the TV inside the trailer, and now have an access point to connect to on the outside of the trailer.

Turbos right. This trailer should be wired for cable already.

My 2012 Salem was not and I had to take it back to the dealer to get it installed. It only cost $100 and was worth every penny since we have two girls that like to watch tv!

I own a WILDWOOD.. its a great trailer.. but many are budget built and in some.. the cable outlet is optional. I don't camp too many places that offer cable hookup. So I just bought 50 ft of cable and a couple pieces of "flat" cable connections. The "flat" connections stay in my window.. and I just plug in the cable when I want it. Works great!

FLAT CABLE:
