ID:	119834great info. I would suggest picking up a couple of push on coax connectors. I like them because I don't care to thread on and thread off the cable connection each time These are from the "shack de radio". As I call it.

I must be totally stupid because I cant find any button or light,and Ive looked everywhere.Plus,I have 2 male coax connecters on the outside of the trailer at the left rear corner,but no way to know which is sat and which is cable,so if I cant get anything on the ant I just turn it off.

I would assume the "cable/satellite" label shown in post #4, is a standard FR item,...so I would consider the left connector to be the cable connection on all their RV's until I had proof otherwise,..... you got nothing to loose if you start there, .....

Be sure the cable type is RG6. There are several types that look alike. RG6 is probably all that Walmart sells. It would be printed on the cable itself.

The TV wiring is definitely confusing... Nothing is labelled and there are a lot of potential combinations to try to get right. I took mine apart and mapped it all out to simplify.

I made up a laminated label for the outside connection to mark which was cable input (on the left on mine) and which was the aux or satellite input (on the right on mine). The actual paper base came from the attached word doc file, just printed and went snip snip.

On mine I found that the outside aux/sat connection ran into a splitter to feed one outlet in the bedroom and an outlet on the Winegard plate. If you want to use this you will need to shift the TV cable inside over.

The cable input went into the Winegard amplifier to switch in when the antenna amplifier is turned off. It will feed out of the amplifier normally to feed the regular TV port on the Winegard plate and a splitter feeding an outlet in the bedroom and the outlet on the side of the TT.

This is all shown on the wiring diagram in the attached word doc.

There is some chance yours may be wired up like my 2015 Rockwood 2604WS

We have a 2013 Sanibel and can't figure out how to change over from antenna to cable TV on our exterior set. Our two interior TVs are fine. Can anyone help?

Pretty plain as where to hook what cable to where. Cable/Satellite Cable goes to the side that says cable. Later RJD

Once again, all RV's are not the same. On our 2014 Grey Wolf 26DBH, we had ONE 'F' connector on side of trailer, not two. It was labeled "Sat/Cable".
