You will have to try both. Remember to turn off antenna booster when on cable. Mine were not marked correctly

Welcome to the forums. Sorry, I can't help you with the connections.

The manual from Forest River is generic and will not tell you which connection is which. If you don't have any manuals from the manufacturers of the individual accessories you will need to get the make and model numbers from each and look them up online. There are manuals for many of the appliances in the Library section of these forums.

Even with my antenna booster off I couldn't get good signal with my Wally receiver and Tailgater dish. I ended up running a 2nd coax RG6 that is only for the receiver/dish. Good luck

Our most recent TWO Forest River products...(Columbus and Cardinal) which we love very much...both had to be rewired. The Columbus had to have 100% of the coax from the web bay to the main TV redone (at Forest River's expense). There were a half-dozen or more "connectors" in that 30' run of wire. Why? I have no idea, when one single strand would have been much cheaper and faster for the factory.

The Cardinal...I discovered the problem and simply switched the wires connected to the coaxial inputs behind the wet bay and it corrected the problem.
