How do select OTA vs. cable (what does the switch look like)?


something like this?

I am looking into running an OTA antenna cable to my entertainment center which is over my steering wheel. There should be a splitter somewhere that sends the signal to my three TV's. The one I checked was on the back wall of my compartment right in front of the water tank compartment.

To my knowledge there is no OTA cable run to the AV cabinet over the steering wheel. Attached is the Newmar wiring diagram for the OTA coax.

Consequently, I had an OTA coax run to the AV cabinet as a special when the coach was built for use with Dish's OTA tuner.

That diagram is like mine ... I expect the OPs to be similar. There is an extra (unused) coax output on the front of the Winegard switch faceplate.

I have been running a cable from this connection across the floor and over to the entertainment center. I was checking into getting something set up to not have to do this. My idea with the splitter will still work thanks to the diagram that dp7 posted. It have a spare "out" connection and I will run the cable up to the front and then hopefully up the "A" pillar and into the entertainment center.

I did several special options, but I did not do this one.
