It would help if you posted your year/model of RV. You can also create a signature that shows these details every time you post. That way someone with the same model would have an idea where the cabling connections and labeling are.

Please know that every time you split a signal into two lines there is a likelihood of signal quality loss. Knowing this you might consider just getting a long enough cable to plug into the wall and run out a window or door.

It would not be hard for me to put in a splitter if you can access the cable somewhere and run the line out to a convenient point to put in an outdoor access port. But I used to do this a part time job. But if you have never done any cable work then it might be hard. Consider asking a local cable guy to help ( 6 pack and a couple of $20s).

I want to use my over the air roof antenna to attach only to my outside TV. No splitter.
Thanks.

On most the cable runs through the roof, across the ceiling and down the wall to an outlet/plug for cable. If you want to run it direct you would need to find it in the wall or ceiling. The either split it for future possible use leaving the original cable operational and then run a line out side via walls, hole in the floor or outside wall of the RV.

How about a portable antenna or set top antenna?

Thanks.

The roof antenna should already connect to the outside TV. You need to make sure the booster is on (green/red light) then go to the TV, set it to OTA, then scan for channels.

I guess I dont see the advantage of rewiring the coach to remove the splitter when its already connected. If you don't want to use the OTA antenna on the other TVs, you don't have to. What are you trying to accomplish?


How is the current configuration limiting you in terms of what you want to do? If you simply want OTA on the otusdie TV you should have that already.

My 2021 Altante 27A has both TVs already hooked up to the antenna.
Cheers,
