That's great but I took the question as whether there is a separate antenna already installed for the outside TV alone.

No, unless you or a previous owner installed one.

Move your cable boxes from your house out to the fiver. Call your cable company and request service for your cable, describe the issue.

Our cable company (Spectrum) sent out a nice technician with quality testing tools. He was able to identify a section of coaxial cable that was bad and screwing up all the TVs in the coach. Replaced that one section of wire and all the issues went away. I did the replacement by running the new wire under the trailer above the chloroplast. This solution worked well for us perhaps your cable provider can help you here. He told us that occasionally coaxial wire fails without reason and the HD digital signals are particularly susceptible.
Tim,

I read with interest the problem(s) youíve faced thus far with your RVís television cabling system. I did what "redhooker" suggested above.

When at home, the Wildcat sits next to the house feeding off a power pedestal that includes cable hookup. My service provider, Brighthouse/Spectrum, considers this as part of our home network. He found issues I would not have thought; loose fittings, cable sections frayed from the framework, a faulty amplifier, the list goes on. This on my then new Wildcat.
