Where Does cable go?

Hi, I have a 1999 Harney Coachworks 37' diesel motorhome. The only cable outlet I see is in a compartment where it says TV and telephone. Is this where I hook up my cable? Do I need to do anything to the TV inside? If I buy the RG6 cable, should I get male/female attachments just in case?
Do I need to do anything with the antenna settings or remote?? Just realized last week I might actually have cable and anxious to try it out for this week's trip. Thanks!

Usually in the "cable" outlet, you plug in a coax cable from the service pole to your mh; inside your mh, usually under or close by the tv, you should have a spliter box with some of these buttons mentionning: "Antenna", "Cable", "Satellite" and these buttons could be duplicated for a second tv; so if you do have cable facility at a campsite, you plug the external coax cable in to your mh and then either select TV or cable on that split box (for cable listening, your tv should be on channel 3 or 4) If without cable facility, you'll have to press the "antenna" button after manually cranking or raising your anetnna.

Most MH have a cable-in plate or box on the rear drivers side sometimes in the wet bay. A standard store bought rg6 cable should have the correct ends. Plug it in go inside set up your inside boxes per the above info.
