TV Connecting

Situation:
1. 1999 Land Yacht 30'
2. Two TVs, color RCA in rear, unknown brand in front.
3. No remotes either set
4. Vehicle has Winegard antenna
5. Vehicle has cable connection; assume connected
6. Would there be a factory-installed splitter servicing the two TVs?

Question is, given the age of the TVs (non-HDTV), can a simple cable connection work?

If not, what needs be done?

Many thanks for any suggestions, remedies, etc., etc.

Mike

I would assume that the TV's both have a coax connection (CATV jack). If so you may find some places that have standard cable still but for most places you will need a CATV receiver. You may get lucky and the CATV receiver has analog outputs (either composite - the single yellow video cable, SVideo - the cable that looks like an old PS2 mouse, or component - the red blue and green cables. It that case your TV's may have one or all three of those types of connections. The quality of the signal goes up from composite to SVideo to component.

Thanks. Since both TVs are factory installed I'm not sure how to access the connections. The motor home does have a cable jack near the shore power connection.

The connections are on the back or side of the TV - I am not entirely sure - but fairly certain there is a splitter from the outside connection to the physical connection on the TV. Can you post pictures of the TV's? The TV's also will have buttons somewhere - check around the edges.

I replaced both my TVs with flat screen models. The one in the front is suspended from the ceiling while the one in the bedroom is on a tilted mounting bracket affixed to the original box. On my unit there was a splitter located behind the driver's side upper trim box near the headliner.
