Inside Cable Wire Connectors for TV

It appears that my cable that goes into the back of my TV is missing something that connects into the back of my TV,. The screw on part that hooks into my TV is missing the wire that plugs into the back of the TV. The cable is flexible and the wire inside of the cable is strains and not a solid wire. So I need to know what I hook that strain to (and how). What is the part number for the connector and how does it connect to this cable? The cable has the mesh on the outside of the cable with a small plastic inside that houses the strain wire. I am used to hooking up to a solid metal wire at the center of the cable and not sure I understand how this works. Please tell me the connector part brand and number and how it is supposed to connect / work. 2016 Flying Cloud 25.

The connectors to the TV for antenna or cable is called an "F" connector.
Commonly, they're just crimped on the wire with a tool that squeezes the collar.
You're right, normally the center connector is a solid wire and has no added tip. I've never seen one for video that's stranded.
The mesh is called the shield, and it's the ground connector as well as shielding outside interference.
So, let's back up. Because a similar connector for AUDIO uses 22 ga. stranded wire, and is called an RCA plug. They usually have a red or white center piece. Although they don't have a shield, just a ground wire.
IF it component video or composite video it can also be run on a stranded RCA plug that's shown with a YELLOW center marker.
Although RCA's can be soldered, I find it's easier to buy a cable and cut it in half, then solder the bare wires, or replace the entire cable because it's normally accessible at both ends.
Does this narrow it down?

So what goes into the TV with this mess wire center. Does the correct connector have a tip that goes into the TV? The mess wire will not go into the back of the TV "connect plug"? Does the cable wire just crimp into the correct adapter that screws into the back of the TV? TV needs to have a solid wire inserted into the back of the TV but the Cable is limp..... mesh wire. How does the correct connector from cable wire to connector attach to the TV with this "limp" wire.... Does the connector have a solid plug that the wire just meshes up against inside the connector?

Sorry I did not get all of your previous post before I replied. My cable is not standard Coaxial. It is a flexible cable without a solid center wire.

I got confused - at first I couldn't figure out were this wire was located on his truck (TV) so use to using TV as a short form for tow vehicle

Yep a pic would be helpful for clarity

In my trailer the television coax is an ultra thin cable (RG-316?) and not the large household type RG-6 cable. It does have an F-type connector on the end that fastens onto the television in the normal way.

Trying to attach picture but not sure I got it

I need an F type connection to television but the cable is small and flexible. Conductor wire is braided not solid copper. Would like compression right angle instead of solder.
