Outside Cable Connection for Wildwood 252RLXL?

We just purchased a new 2015 Wildwood 252RLXL. I cannot find an outside cable connection. Any suggestions? Also, what is the TV satellite switch for inside and how s it used? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

On my Wildwood 26TBSS, the outside cable hookup is on the rear drivers side of the trailer above the 30 amp power cable. It's covered up with a little white cap. Not sure if yours is in the same spot but look carefully.

The switch on the coax port inside may be your antenna booster/amplifier. My understanding is that you keep it off if you're using the coax out for satellite TV and to put it on if you want to pull straight from the roof antenna.

The outside satellite and cable ports will normally be on the street side of the RV since that will be closest to any campground connections for cable which will also be in or near the campground electric service. If you want to use satellite you will have a separate coax port on the outside, usually next to the cable coax port. On the inside there should be a wall plug that says "TV" which is used for cable service or when the button is pushed and the little light is on indicating the amplifier is on and it is used for OTA (over the air) tv reception. For cable reception leave the amplifier turned off. For connection to a satellite antenna plug into the "satellite" port on the outside. On the inside there should be a wall outlet marked "aux/sat". That is where you hook up your satellite receiver. You cannot get satellite antenna reception though the outside cable port. The satellite antenna signal will not pass through the amplifier circuit, it must be a direct coax with no splitters in the path.

I just looked at pictures of a 2014 Wildwood 252RLXl and the cable AND satellite ports were on the street side rear wall back of the slide. Honestly, looking at photo's of a 2015 model I didn't see any tv coax ports in the normal locations. Maybe they put them on the underside of the trailer rather that in a wall, don't see why they would do that but they need to be somewhere on the outside to hook up cable. You need to ask your dealer those questions, they should have been discussed in your walk through.

One other suggestion, post your question in the 5th Wheel/Trailer part of the forum in the Wildwood section. Just remember you say you have a 2015 and just like I noticed the 2014 is different from the 2015 and you will get answers from everyone that has a Wildwood regardless of model or year. The only one that will be correct is from someone that HAS a 2015 model just like yours.
