Outside cable tv hookup

Hello, does anyone have time to tell us where you hook up cable tv (on the outside of the trailer)? We have been around the trailer and don't see it. We just bought this- thank you!

Although we have a Class A, it's possible the location logic is the same. In the bay where the shore power hook-up is, we also have, on the aft bulkhead of that bay, a connection for a 75-ohm coax (TV) and a phone jack. They're both the kind of ivory-clored wall-plates used in domestic hook-ups.

With digital over-the air and all the variations of cable systems out there, getting a TV signal is a lot more complicated than it used to be. We've only used ours maybe three times in two seasons and we had to let the TV tuner sort through the available channels each time we hooked up and switched on. We aren't big TV fans, so it hasn't been an issue. Most of the time we're looking for weather forecasts!

Hi! Thanks so much for taking the time to reply! My husband says we don't have a bay for the power hookup, so I guess we have a different situation! And we figured out that we turned the TV on and it worked, I guess it is satellite here- oh gosh, yes, tv is so much more confusing now! Anyway, thanks so much! :-)

I have a different TT but the cable/coax hookup is on the same side as the water & electric hook ups towards the rear. It has a small cover that is easily missed.

The outside cable hookup on my 2009 Palomino Puma 25RS is on the outside wall, directly opposite of the inside connection panel. Not far from the left rear corner of the trailer.....

It's possible that you dont have one. Thats not a standard option on all TT.

On your back wall beside the slide and water hookup there is what looks to be an electrical outlet. This should be your cable and satelite hookups.
