Remove the loop and a piece of coax to the input on the back of the sat receiver and the output from the receiver back to connector 2 on the wallplate and you should be good to go. Too bad Jayco doesn't include directions for the electronics connection procedure.
Iím New at this and I have never got the cable to work. Could you explain what I have to do with the loop. Iím trying to connect to the cable outlet at the RV park. The wall plates are unmarked. All too confusing to the uneducated. Is there someplace to get written instructions?
No written instructions that I have ever seen. If you are wanting to hook up to a CG cable, leave the loop in place between the 2 connectors on the wall plate. Make sure the booster [green lite] on the wall plate [usually also has a 12v cig plug outlet] is "OFF". The cable now s/b fed into the RV coax wiring and available to the main tv and all other coax connections in the RV. Check with the host or CG office and ask if the cable is working at your site. I'd say that my experience is maybe 50/50 that my site is working.
My white Hawk only has one external input connector and the set up is as described above. Our previous TT had 2 and one was marked cable and the 2nd was Sat. If your Jayco has the loop on the wall plate as described I suspect you only have a single exterior input connection.
If the above doesn't work, you might try bringing in coax cable thru window and connect it directly to the input on the back of a tv. If that doesn't work then I suspect there is something bad at the power post. If it does work, you probably have an issue at the splitter that is usually behind the wall plate that contains the booster switch/green lite. All of this s/b as easy as plugging in your toaster but its not. The good news is that once you figure out the grimlens in your system you'll be good to go for the future.
