TV connections

Just getting my new (to me) 2103 Rushmore set up for the season. The owners manual is worthless as far as telling me how the TV connections work.

My assumption is that the satellite comes into the camper where the city water does (also next to the "outdoor shower), however, where does it go from there?

From the point where it enters the camper, is it split to the 2 locations where TV's are mounted, or does it go to the TV where the reciever is at the back of the camper and and then split off from there? I'm sure there are other options I haven't considered, so if I'm way off base, please tell me so.

I'm a couple weeks out from getting the satellite guy there to work on his portion of things. I'd at least like to have an idea how everything is connected when he gets there.

Look in the cabinet to the left side of the fireplace
You will see an antenna plate with connections
Remove the plate. Those are all the coax connections for each TV
And. Satellite input. Good luck.

Tony, the other day while fighting the cold water connection on the hot water tank. I notice the two TV cables behind the the dump handles area. One was white and one was grey. Not sure if that helps or not.

I have a 2015 Rushmore, I too had the question about how to hook up the Tailgater satellite dish. I called Rushmore, 888-226-7496, they sent me the wiring diagram by email. Problem solved. The dish installer for our house said that the satellite does not work when there are splitters in the line. My diagram shows a line coming directly in without a splitter and one with.

OK, just getting back to this today. I was at my campsite and took some pictures. I called customer service earlier this week and must have spoke with a disgruntled employee as he was of little use. Maybe I'll try again and specifically ask for the wiring diagram as mentioned previously.

In the meantime, here are my pictures and descriptions of their locations. If anyone can tell me how this puzzle fits together, I'd be very grateful.

Anyway, I do not have the panel as described by TDG in the cabinet to the left of the fireplace. However, I do have a hole drilled into the back of the cabinet leading to the area where the TV rests when the lift is down. The picture below is of that area.



Below is a picture of the area I think is where the cable/satellite comes into the camper. If anyone could confirm/deny this, that'd be great.

Below is a picture of the plate behind the TV in the bedroom. It'd be nice to know where the signal comes into this plate from.


Here is the other plate I found. This is in the basement, a couple feet to the right of the door leading into the camper. I'm not sure what the other connection is on the plate with the coax jack, but it looks an awful lot like a cigarette lighter to me. If anyone knows anything about this, please pass that info along. I'm not sure why, or how to fix it, but this should be rotated 90 degrees clockwise to see it in its proper orientation.

Sounds like I'm the only one who can see my pics.
Hopefully they show up this time.

I attempted to upload them in the order I described them in my last post.
