Outside Cable hookup

We just purchased a slightly used 2018 ORV Black Rock 24KTS. It has the 12V TV installed and it works well on over air channels. We sometimes utilize campgrounds and some of them offer cable TV. I have been all over the outside of the trailer, and cannot find the place to connect the cable into the TV. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Mine is in the wet bay, high on the wall (of the space). I looked for a few hours before i found it. It matched very well. PITA to locate but seemed stupid once I saw it.

Is yours a Back Country Series? Those may not be wired for it. If yours has it, all external coax ports are next to the power port on ORV units as far as I know.

Thanks Guys. I checked the wet bay and no luck. Mine is the back country series, so I may not have cable capabilities. I think I will put in a call to ORV and see what they can tell me. I saw pictures of the connection in the rear around the power cord hook up, but mine is not there.

Your owners manual is absolutely no help at all;

Cable Hook-Up
To utilize the cable access, locate the exterior hookup on the side of the trailer. Attach cable to access hook-up and trailer hook-up. Finally, make sure the antenna power booster is set on "cable" and not "antenna".


Have you tried Utube for a video on it?

Sorry you cant find it. Good Luck

Looking at that plan and the 3D walk thru on the ORV website it looks like there are two sets of ports - one for the DVD player and one for the off air antenna - no cable or DSS. I am really not sure they even have an antenna as there is no switch for the amplifier.

Thank you Michael for your keen observation and your ability to correctly quote the owners manual. Please read slowly now. the TT has NO outside hookup and additionally does not have a booster for the TV antennae.
