External Cable TV Hookup?

New owner of a Salem 27RLSS. Does this unit not have an external connection for cable TV? Can't find it for searching...

As stated, look for a little door.
Or look in the storage compartment on the side walls.
There is a REAL possibility that you don't have one.
In my Cruise Lite, I don't and there are several Salem models that don't have it I have found it.

I have run across many "cable ready" campers that don't have the external connection. Seems crazy but true. SMH

The Salem is a 2014 and there are no visible connections. I looked behind the internal TV cable connection and there is a cable connected to it. So it blows my mind there is no external hookup? Really? So where then does the cable behind the wall plate go?

Aerial antenna. 2012 Salem 26RKSxL here. Had to install my own cable connection. Very easy.

The photo I saw showed it on the slide side just ahead of the power cord door. There are 2 round plugs with caps on them. One marked for cable and the other marked for satellite.

Mine is located on the rear wall below the right side (curb side) tail light. TV is located toward the front of the trailer. Go figure................
