Outside tv connection

If I recall correctly when I purchased my Sunset Trailer 2014 that the outside connection would only receive over the air reception. Is there a work around so that I can get my satellite channels outside. Not sure why a simple A/B switch could have been installed to toggle back and forth. Thanks

Only the satellite connector goes to the main tv. Mine does not work though it must be damaged. The cable tv connector goes to all Tvs. These outside connectors are unmarked on my 2014 Sunset 32 bh.

You can only watch satellite outside by running tailgater directly to a tv sitting outside.

I found on my 2013 CR ST 32RL 5th wheel that the outside TV connection at the rear of the trailer goes to the space between the upper cabinet just above the TV. I gently removed the bottom board panel of the cabinet and found that the outside coax cable enters a splitter and then branches off to the front bedroom TV and then to the main living area TV. This same splitter also connects to the Jansen stereo system.

Since I have a satellite View Cube with two coax cable connections, I removed the connection to the front bedroom TV from the splitter and installed a new connection in the side wall of our large side opening that allows the TV to spin and face the outside (outdoors). This way I can run two coax cables from the View Cube to the same spot inside next to the back of the TV and connect both TV's. I left the old coax connection from the rear of the trailer in place and connected. That way, if we ever stop in an RV park that has their own TV cable hook up, I can still connect our main living area TV to that system.
