First off welcome...When you lift the cover on the camper cable box to hook up to the campground pedestal it should have two connections, one should have the letters (SAT) next to it for satellite the other should have (CAT) for cable...

I don't understand what you mean when you say there are two locations, can you explain that better or post pictures.???

Is this a better description of what I'm wondering?
My TT, has two external coaxial location's, ( one goes to inside tv's, the other is for watching tv outside ) thus two location's.

Each location has two coaxial connection's, none of the connection's are marked for satellite or cable, does it matter?

Thx, Mike

I own a CF305SKP Cruiser...My camper has one coax connection, which is an imput from the campground pedestal, and it's location is in my basement...It has two connectors and they are marked SAT & CAT...Evidently your camper has a much different set up than mine...Sorry I could not help you...

Okay thank's, I just don't want to hook the campground cable connector to my TT satellite conector by mistake, it probably won't hurt anything just won't have a good picture if cable is in satellite coaxial connector.
Thank's though, Mike

Without a satellite receiver you won't get any picture hooking to the sat connection.

On the rear end, I have 2 connections, the one on the left is for cable, assume the one on the right is for satellite but have never used it.
I also have one on the side near my out door TV mount, not sure what that one is, never used it.

The one on the side near your outside television mount is probably the connection to your outside television...

I believe Tommy is correct about the side connection, though I never used it. On the rear, my right one is the satellite, which I use. I have never been able to get the left to work while trying cable. I only tried it once so far. May be a loose connection.
