bedroom tv - Wildwood

Just bought a 2007 wildwood 39FKDS which has two tv inlet connections outside on the back labeled park cable and sat.

I have an standard outdoor roof antenna which I connected to each one and found that the Sat. connection works for the main tv but when I connect the bedroom it does not work.

I looked at the manual and it said somthing about a jumper but I am not sure where the connections are for that. I will try using the built in antenna and see if that will work for the bedroom tv.

Any thoughts?

Love this trailer which replaced an 84 Mallard

Try using a "splitter" and connect the sat to the cable and then both will have the same signal. You can get a splitter from radio shack for about 5 dollars. You may even have an extra one in your house left over from when the cable guy was there.

The input connection labeled "Cable" is for either cable TV or can be used as an antenna connection. This system should be wired to distribute the signal to both front and rear TVs.

The connection labeled "SAT" is not a distributed signal. The reason for this is Satellite TV needs power at the dish. This power comes from the Satellite Receiver box, so it needs a straight through connection. So, the "SAT" line goes straight from the connection inside the trailer to the connection on the outside.

Use the "Cable" connection to get your antenna signal to both front and rear TVs.

I am taking from your post that you do not have a factory mounted over the air antenna. If you do have a factory installed antenna it should be wired into the cable connection. There is a small button on the wall plate. When you push the button on and off a light should light You need to make sure the light is on when using the over the air antenna and off when using cable.
