Cable tv

We are heading to a park that has trees making it difficult to raise the dish. The park has cable tv. How do I connect to that from the coach?

We have the same year Newmar, just a different model. On ours there is a cable plug-in where our 50amp cord reel is.

We run in to this every once and awhile so I keep a 25' roll of coax in there next to the power reel.

You have a small box on the wall behind the passenger seat where you scan for over the air channels. For cable, be sure that is turned off. You'll also need to have your TVs scan for cable channels.

- the cable input box by the 50 amp cord isn't marked, it's just a gray box with a plastic hinged lid you have to open to connect the cable with your own coax. The shorter the better for reception as there's another 20-30 feet of coax inside the RV from that box to your TV. We carry a 10-foot and a 20-foot length of coax.

- The box behind the passenger seat Susan refers to is not obvious, on our 2017 VTLE is looks like a 12V lighter plug with a tiny green LED. The LED indicates that it is boosting the over-the-air signal, so when you connect to park cable you want to be sure the green LED is *off* or not illuminated or it will interfere with the cable signal and you'll get static.

- You have to scan for the cable channel from each TV you want to use, living room, bedroom, and outside if applicable. There should be a menu button, then something like "network," then the choice of Antenna, Cable or Satellite. Choose Cable and then have it scan, which takes a few minutes.
