I have the double coax cable jack in the living room with the jumper cable running between them, then the coax cable hookup next to it on the same place with the 12 volt. Then a coax jack on the ceiling in the bed room.

Re: TV Problem

Some really good info here. I tried setting up our antenna once an few months ago and could not get it to work. I figured that I was missing something but have not had time to figure out what I was missing. Going to try again next weekend. Thanks guys!!!

Hey Mike - Glad you got it figured out. You will find this setup alot better than the normal camp ground cable connections. This is real good full screen high def televison. Will be hard to go back to CABLE haha... I actually use the OTA when I am at the cable hookup sites. We usually watch the national channels anyway. Being full blown high def makes watching just regular ole TV over the cable hookup hard to watch haha...

They do make a signal finder for the high def stations... The one I have is a SURELOCK model SL1000 like this one... I think I got mine from AMAZON.


You can find the transmitting towers pretty quick with this before you start your TV MENU search.

Happy Camping

Roy Ken
