TV hookup on 2014 22FB????? HELP

hello all well we are getting ready for our first trip at Cherrystone campground in Va, and we bought a small 22" led TV for the TT, there are 3 cable connections inside . there is 1 on a plate with a 12V lighter plug, then there is another plate with 2 connections, with a jumper cable attached, to use the batwing antenna, which do I hook my TV to?? my TT came with the hook up outside so if I wanted to tailgate as well?? I tried hooking it up but not getting a signal so I don't know if I done it right?? any help would be greatful, also are there any gain to a signal booster?

The 12VDC jack with BNC output is you antenna connection.

The other plate with (2) BNC connectors is a in/out distribution point for your cable TV (or antenna). I assume you have more than (2) points to connect a TV in your TT?

makesure the amp button is not on and don't forget to do a channel search/set your tv to "cable" to find channels. If still nothing (and you know the TV is good) check the connectors if you are able to access them. odd but has to be something simple. good luck!

Yes... raise the antenna as high as it will go and point your antenna toward the nearest town. Press the little black button on the antenna connection plate (this is an antenna signal amplifier). Set your HDTV input from CABLE to ANT then try a channel scan from the HDTV menu.

Turn off the antenna amplifier button when not in use - it draws 12VDC

Happy Camping
