Cable Splitter for TV

I Have a 2013 Zinger ZT31SB and I cannot find the cable splitter for the main TV, the Tv in the Bunk House is working but not the main tv. The cable box I am trying to hook up is not getting activated and it probably means the cable is not contected to that tv.

I also pulled the Audio system out as suggested in other post but they are not there.

Does somebody else have any suggestions or know where the connections are ?

thanks
Matt

Is your antenna on or off. If the Antenna is on you will not be able to get cable

I removed the cover plate to the cable jack in the living room. Tucked up in there was the splitter.

I do believe the rear TV hookup is behind the plate in the entertainment center.

If you are using antenna, booster must be on. We don't get squat in bunk room without booster.

Are you trying to hook up a cable or satelite box or just get a signal from your roof antenna. I have the same Zinger and I have done some wiring in mine so if I know exactly what you are trying to do I may be able to help. I use a direct tv receiver in my Zinger.

Ken, I am trying to connect a cable box. I am going to try the wall plate to see if it is connected first.

What have you done ?

This is what you need to do. Go to the back of your trailer and make sure you are plugged into the connection on the right side that is the satelite input. Now connect your box to the wall plate above you tv that does not have the antena booster I believe that is on the left if I remember correctly. If you need a cable box you need to do it this way you will only have a signal at you main TV not the bunk house. When you have rv park cable you want to plug into the left plug on the outside of the trailer and that signal will run to all you tv plugs like you antena would. I used a sharpe and marked my outside plugs so I wouldn't forget my first few trips out when I bought mine.
Hope this solves your problems Ken

If you are running cable TV from a house, why can't you install it on the cable side? The cable runs from the back to the living room and splits to the other jacks. No different than in a house. You will just need boxes at the TV's you are using. Now you may need a booster because of the resistance in the length of cable and the splitter.

Thanks guys, I took the wall plate out in the main room TV and tighten the cables, they were a little loose.

It works now.

thanks again for the feedback.
