Antenna/TV receptacle

I can't find the antena receptacle on my 73 24' Argosy. Any ideas?

I'll try to post a photo of mine -- I plan on being at my trailer this weekend. My sink is streetside and there is a wedge shaped plastic receptacle cover on the wall above the sink that has a 12V plug (cigarette lighter type) and two holes into which one would insert the solid TV antenna wires. The PO lifted the receptacle cover and directly wired a flat antenna duo (not coax) coming out from under the cover.

Okay -- here's the streetside galley wall in my '76 Argosy 24' trailer:

... and the 12V and TV receptacle cover. The two holes on the left are labeled TV Ant; I assume one originally would have jammed stripped wire ends into those. No wonder the PO direct wired it! I haven't pulled the cover to see just what was done -- should have been pretty simple though.

Ours is just above and to the left of the sink (when standing in the dish washing position) It's mounted under the overhead storage bin.

Antenna/TV plug

Dear Al, Bob, Janet and all,
We have a 78/79 Argosy with the same receptacle. Ours came with the original adapter plug and twin lead wire attached. This plugs into the two holes in the wall mounted receptacle. NO BARE/STRIPPED wires!! Although that might work.
Most new TVs have a place for a twin lead attachment. Or an adapter to connect. Or you may be able to get them at Radio Shack. Luckily, we have not had to go looking.
These plugs were very common in the vintage era. They also saw use in homes as well as in travel trailers. My father-in-law has one in the wall of his house. They might also be available in old established radio/tv shops. Antique section!

found a source for tv jack/adapter plug

Having recently acquired a 1977 Argosy 28 foot travel trailer (painted Airstream) hubby and I are having lots of fun exploring the net to find out more about our "twinkie".

It has an interior antenna base plate which requires a 2-prong tv adapter (just like one pictured below). I commented to my husband that that is a nearly impossible adapter to find and lo and behold he told me our local RV dealer has one.

I am sitting here with one in front of me. AND it was only $3.39 plus tax. They have more (they get them somewhere on the internet). They look to be made in late 60's - 70's because of the clothes and hairstyles of the family pictured on the front near an RV.

It is a Braund 300 OHM tv jack. It has a base plate and the 2-prong tv adapter. The recepters on our original unit are splayed so we are going to place the new recepters in our original base plate. The tv adapter will then fit snug.

The only available color is walnut.

If anyone has a need for one of these email me and I'll give you the info or for a small shipping/handling fee I could pick one up and mail it to you.

Barb

Barb,
Thanks for your offer to help in getting a plug for our TV receptacle. I've sent you a private message with our address and other information in order to hopefully get that done. GStephens
