Basement tv

I was checking out my basement area and it appears to be wired from the factory with cable, telephone and sound. I would like to put an outdoor entertainment system down their but not sure where to look for the cable on the other end. Any ideas........

The connection you found may be ran directly into a video distribution box or a cable switch within your RV to your televisions. You need to identify what you have.

Our 2012 Tiffin TGA is also wired for it in one of our Bays but we already have 3 TV's in the Coach and we do not Tail Gate so not for us but if you can do it Go For It.

I don't know your coach, but everyone I know of, all A/V cables meet at the front entertainment center in the front of the coach. As previously stated, they will all be joined at a distribution box up front.

If all the cables (ant in, catv in, front, rear, outside outbound, DVD, ect) are not labled, you're going to have some experimentation involved to get the inbound signal you want to that outside TV.

The signal on co-axel cable travels both ways. If you have a cable out (prob where electrical cable out is), you can put a splitter there and run your co-axel cable from there to your hold. Some have had no luck with a more expensive splitter but picked up a splitter from a Dollar store and system works just fine. Fishing the cable is the hardest part and your holds are sealed which could make for some work. Nice to have though.

In most cases, when you find a cable outlet in the basement storage, your A/V Distribution box will have buttons for TV1, TV2, and TV3. All connections should be there already and connected.

Mine has a cable hook-up in the power cord compartment to hook to cable, it also has a outlet and TV hook-up on the passenger side in the rear compartment. I hooked up to the one in the passenger side compartment and everything works off TV 2. Jim
