Not sure about your specific model rv, but make sure the tv is set to "air" with the on screen menu. Then, our Cougar has a built in antenna booster that should be turned on. By the way, our booster has to be "off" to return to cable tv.

Make sure 12V is going to the antenna.

On many of our rigs there are 2 switches to operate the antenna - one is on the antenna itself (the slider switch that turns on the blue lights) - the other is located somewhere on the wall (possibly in an electronics compartment - and will be a simple 'push button' or 'toggle')...

Then follow the previous instructions about changing the 'signal source' on your TV ...

Did you have the King installed or is it factory installed?

The antenna is factory installed but it doesn't have a switch or the lights.

Are you referring to the King Jack over the air antenna?

The King Jack has a slide switch on the ceiling base and LEDs that indicate the signal strength. If you don't have LEDs on, then the power switch on the wall plate is not on.

That plate has a button and a LED. LED on - Antenna, LED off = Park Cable.

On my Bounder, the wallplate is behind the bedroom TV.

On our Vista, the King Jack switch for the antenna/cable is located in the shelf above the passenger. Took me a little while to find it. The King manual said it existed but didn't give a clue as to where it might be.

Good Luck....it's probably there...

Hey folks, I'm reading all the strings regarding passing a Satellite dish signal into the cable input of the RV to the front TV. I am having a problem and searhing for answers. I hope someone reads this and can offer some suggestions.

I have a 2014 Fleetwood Storm. The coach is set up with a front tv, middle tv (bunks) and back bedroom tv. All tvs are fed by a passive push button router/spliter located in the front. The router inputs are : DVD, Aux 1, Aux 2, Antenna, and Cable for front tv, back tvs and outside tv. I purchased a Dish Tailgater package by King which comes with a 211 receiver. I unboxed it, set it up and cannot get the receiver to talk to the dish when put into the cable connection on the outside of the RV. Of coarsse the Satellite system works fine if you run the cable straight into the receiver through the front window. I don't want to do that. Do I need to splite the cable that feeds the router cable input and run a coax along side the cable coax

The satellite signal cannot pass through the Box-of-Buttons. You have to disconnect the Park Cable input coax from the BOB and run that to the satellite receiver.

If the satellite receiver has a coax output, you can run that to the BOB and to the TVs. If the satellite receiver does not have a coax output, then you cable the receiver to the TV using whatever cabling is available.

The better solution is to run a new coax cable for the satellite input.

I run a separate cable for the tailgator and then use the co-ax output of my 211K into the panel.. I have a choice of where to run the HDMI output.

I don't think the newer 211z has a co-ax output.

If your distribution system has a HDMI input you can tie the 211z output into your system.

Remember the tailgator gets its power and control from the 211 so you can't put anything in between.
