I am a new owner of a Cutter Bus 96 and love it. Very well taken care of and always under cover. It was quite a change, learning to drive next to the center line rather than my usual center-of-the-road driving. Whoo! those oncoming trucks on the country back roads got awful close. But I'm used to it now and the white-knuckles have turned pink again when a truck approaches, and slowing down to 35 for the country roads, I just think, be patient car in back of me, I'll be turning off shortly. -smile-
Anyway... my inquiry about tv reception. The original TV was in place and I removed it easily enough. Clipped the cord (the ONLY cord there) and left a long tail. They don't make monster sized tv's anymore, only flat face tv's and I have one from my 'other' rv that I wish to use. It is not set up for the Cutter like the old one was. The flat-face is not a 12 volt
, it's a normal A/C.
I'm assuming the old tv was battery/ a/c combo. My questions:
Can I splice the a/c wires from the flat-face tv into the existing wire from the old tv. The old wire is a direct connection to the antenna, through the battery and the a/c system, I assume. I don't know.
If I cannot splice the flat-face tv into the old wire... how can I utilize the antenna system built into the coach for this flat-face tv? Can I just plug it into any existing plug-ins and it automatically utilizes the antenna?
If I cannot just plug it in to any existing plug-in, what should I do, buy, adjust in order to utilize the antenna as it is now?
I want my flat-face tv to be able to use the existing antenna for it's better reception. Thank you all so much for any assistance you may offer. Bye. Francey S.
