Comcast cable doesnít work...

...through the outside connector. It does work when bypassing the outside and going directly to the cable box supplied by the campground. And yes the antenna power button is off.
At other campgrounds that offer cable without the cable box it works fine. Anyone know why?

Does your antenna switch have a cable vs antenna setting, rather than just on or off?


Somebody, please, point me to the road.

If the campground requires a cable box you need to use the box. Either on the outside or by removing the cable from the back of the tv and put the cable box on the tv line with a short cable running from the box to the tv. Other choice would be to take the white cable/antenna switch plate off the wall and make the cable insertion box at that point.

The box is is a decoder. Most parks don’t require the. But some older parks still do. Depends on the cable system provider.

Missing Bypass Section

Your trailer may not be wired to match mine, but as far as I am aware, you should have a location that will allow you "splice" in a converter/decoder box so either satellite or cable signals can be made compatible with your TV. Find that spot and use a short section of cable to complete the wiring circuit from the exterior connection to the interior TV cable termination plate.

Here is a picture of my bypass cable. I was pulling new wire for another circuit when this picture was taken so the lower plate (where you would typically connect the TV & select cable or antenna with power boost) is removed.
