Outside TV connection?

Ok, I know this probably has been asked before but here goes. We have the 8289ws 5th wheel. How do you get the tv to work outdoors? The tv in the living room and also the bedroom works but not the outside tv.

My outside connection in the garage was wired to a splitter off the antenna. I changed this and wired it to the RF out of my Sat Receiver in the Living Room. Were we camp Off Air never would work . I can always move the cable to the spare antenna output on the panel with the LED and push button if I want Off Air Antenna feed.

I assume you have power and just not finding any stations. If so, check the plate that has the F connector in it. Mine didn't have any cable ran to it on the back side (it was just for looks). If you don't want to pull the plate to check, try connecting an external TV antenna to the TV and see if you can get channels that way.
