Cable Splitter

I have a 30' 94 Excella. The TV cable signal coming into the trailer is strong, however, the signal coming out of the walls is weak. We think the problem is at the splitter but cannot find it. The manual does not pin point the splitter location or tells you how to get at it. Any answeres out there?

I believe it is if "on" is signified by the little red light that is next to the coax outlet.

Are you talking about the cable signal from the external antenna, or the signal from a cable service? If from a cable service, I bypass the amplifier altogether. If it will help, there is a picture of the bypass arrangement in my photo gallery. I just unhook the top cable, and run a short cable directly to the television.

i found my splitter under the antenna, i had the same problem. bad connector.

if you remove the crank and the adjuster plate from the ceiling you should find it. it is tucked up in the insulation.

Amplifier noise

If you are trying to use cable input from a Commercial provider (cable company) then yu want the amplifier to be in the OFF position.

If you are trying to use the Air antenna (crank up), you want the amplifier ON.

The amplifier will induce noise onto the line if you are trying to use Cable TV.
