Cable TV and a 1999 Excella

We have never hooked to cable tv since we bought our Excella 5 years ago. Is there a place externally to hook it to a coax cable?

Hi

Based on how many I see with cables running through windows or out storage doors .... it didn't come with a nice easy cable hookup.

There is a strange looking long bolt in the electric cord storage area but it does not looks like a hookup for a coaxial cable. Not sure what it is.

My 1995 has a cable hookup in the electric cord storage area as well.

Looking at the schematic and it appears to be city cable hookup ext. Maybe the connection was changed for satellite. The bolt that holds it on looks newer than the hookup.

Still more to learn..we have 3 coaxial cables in the trailer not including the antennae one. I tried the 2 that reach the tv with tv on cable setting..no deal so I guess next is a short cable and connector so I can try the last one. I am learning..guess that is good.

Hook your tv to the antenna booster and turn the booster off ( red light off ) re scan your channels on your tv you should be good to go

Actually, mine never worked. The TV works fine on antenna in either end of the trailer. I never could get mine to work on with cable hooked to the jack at the electrical cord. (Yes, booster was off) I messed with it a lot and figured I had a break in the coax somewhere not far from the hookup. I said the heck with it and drilled a hole in the floor in the living room cabinet right above the city water compartment. I put a short piece of cable in and hook up directly.

If I hook the tv to antennae then when do I hook the cable back up? Guess I need step by step. We unhooked the antennae with the light off then hooked up the cable then scanned the tv channels with tv on cable setting.
