Do you know where those outlets would have been mounted when the Safari was new. All of the Excellas I owned before this Safari had these outlets mounted on the exterior wall near the fridge right at the tv credenza. This is my first Safari, so I'm in a learning curve. I moved the tv and curtains and looked behind them, but did not see anything. Since a previous owner put new fabric on the walls I think they coverd the original outlets up when they ran new cable for satilite or catv (you can see the cable in the picture in my post above) If I new exactly where to probe I think I can find them and return them to original condition on my own.

Thanks again!
I have a low-voltage wiring tracer that generates an RF tone, so we could follow the coax to the plug.
Strangely, we're going through where you are to Asheville to attend my wife's nephew's high school graduation. We'll also be in the area toward the end of the month to help my nephew (in Salisbury) pack if you haven't found it by then. He's moving back to California.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

per note at third picture in post #8 - the tv cable runs behind the fridge and cabintes, and bath fixtures into the rear bumper storage

Thanks to all who have helped me!

Thanks to all who have helped me!

I received a PM from a fellow forum member, Extiger, with information that directed me to the location where the outlets were originally installed. A previous owner had removed them, I assume when they re-located the TV installed onto the wall mount TV bracket. (Extiger said he uses a TV table near the original outlets) The original antenna and 12v outlet location is between the road side windows about 4' above the floor.

I think all I will have to do to get things back to original is to uncover the boxes that are mounted in the exterior wall, install new devices, and install new cover plates.

I appreciate all the responses, thanks!!!
