lost cable?

I need help locating TV cables for the TV systems.
Just bought a 1996 34í cutter w/slide and I canít find the video switch or cables to change from antenna to outside hook up. I found the power booster in the front passenger overhead compartment am I getting warm? Any help would greatly appreciated.

Normally, in a trailer that current, the outside cable TV input on the trailer is wired directly to the "power booster" you have located. No switch, just connect the cable TV from the park hookup, and you should see cable TV on a set connected to said outlet. This outside connection is not compatible with a satelite dish without a minor modification.

Thanks the info I got with MH shows a box that can switch source such as vdp or other and select front or rear TV the feed for this comes from the power booster and the out side hook up. I didn't know if there was a standard placement for the cables. My dads is located in the front right upper compartment.

Did you find the connection?

My 99 Cutter has the connection in the electrical outside cord compartment. It looks like a telephone box. In fact, the outside telephone hookup is next to the cable hookup.

After hookup, you select the aux. button on the switch box. You may have to program you tv for cable in the set up mode.

Hope that helps....

Just to update
The leads from the shore cable, antenna, and front and rear tvs. were behind a small wood panel next to the antenna power booster over the passenger seat. I add a source switch and are up and going

water heater

We own a 98 Cutter. There is a heat exchanger under the floor near the
entrance door, that heats water while driving, uses engine hot water, hot air
is vented into the cabin, is there a way to turn this system off. We enjoy
the added heat in the winter(since the engine heater system is underengineered, in the summer this sytem puts too much heat into the cabin

I can install a manual shutoff valve in the inlet hose, but thought someone
might be familiar with the system and there may be a simpler solution.

Thanks alot Jim

Jim I cut a small vent cover and set it over the vents when it gets real hot
You could install a bypass valve but I think this heat exchanger also heats water for your water system.
I have also found that leaving the blinds closed on the sunny side helps keep
the temp down some.
