outside cable hook up

I have a 2012 Salem Cruiselite.
There is no "dedicated" hook up for campground cable to come in.
There is an outside cable hook up for where you can mount a tv outside under the awning.
Has any tried back feeding through that connection for campground cable rather than running a new connection? (booster turned off)
I searched around the Forum and found one other post about it, but that post had NO outside hook ups at all, so didn't really answer the question.
Thanks

I find it hard to understand why a 2 year old trailer does Not have a cable hookup.

Anyway My guess is the outside F connection is for a 75-ohm TV antenna.

There is no "in" hook up anywhere else
Even had the dealer looking for it. LOL
I have no way to really test it without going to somewhere that has cable, just wondered if anyone else had tried it.

Does your C-L have a pass-thru storage in the front?

Do you know if on one side or the other there is a hole (which may have a cap) thru the floor?

If there is a hole what is right above it?



My hookup is right above the white cap hanging down.

I just wonder if your connection is hidden in plain sight like mine is.

It was just a thought.
Sometimes things are in the last place you would ever look.

Well I finally took about two hours and tested it with my home dish.
Took receiver from house, 150 feet of RG6 from satellite connection in the house to the trailer etc...
It DOES feed back into the trailer from the outside connection for a TV, must be RG6 inside because it feeds the dish signal in HD.
