Cable tv question

Hello all,
Question is in my 87 345 M/H is it wired for cable television as there is a screw in plug outlet mounted on rear bedroom wall and coax under the front table that leads to which looks like a booster box which I assume goes to roof top antenna. After more investigation I found a coax coming out of the drivers side compartment that houses the electric and water and connected it this weekend at the campsite cable box which was on to see if I cable... nothing happened so when I got home I ran a new line from the rear bedroom to which I just installed a tv into the wall to the underbelly compartmentand tied in and got cable. I cannot figure out why I can't get cable with the old coax and thought someone might know the answer before I try and figure out how to run another line from table in front to the same location in the rear, seems like that will be a real hassle.

If you have a winegard booster you need to have the switch, or light off to feed the signal thru. If the booster is on it oly sees the antenna.

The feed will run from the outside connection to the front box, and from the front box to the rear connector.

Good luck on your troubleshooting

Brett and I re-did mine last Thanksgiving. I still have the documentation if you need it.

The Winegard plate has

Front - Out to TV

Back -
(1) Antenna input (switch in - light on)
(2) Cable input (switch off - light out)
(3) 2nd TV out

The plate in the rear of your 345 is fed from the front.

On our l987 345, the primary control for both of the TV's is in the table in the lounge. When that switch is turned on (red light) it activates both boxes- the one in the front and the one in the bedroom. The cable connection located in the right rear compartment is adjacent to the phone connection.
