Problem: when I connect the TV cable system in the camp grounds, the front TV (SAMSUNG) only had Channels 2 thru 13 but the rear TV had all the channels. Also the front TV show that it had 0 cable and 7 air channels.

Solution: The manual for the SAMSUNG show that it had inputs for 1) top was AIR and bottom was CABLE. Winnebago had connected the cable the top connector.
I had to removed the screws and bolts that hold the TV down. To removed the top screws, open the middle door above the TV. removed a plastic insert and use a #15 torque to removed screws. On the bottom bolts removed the front bolts with a 1/2 inch socket and the rear screws with a 9/16 inch socket. Carefully move TV forward until your arm will reach back to take the cable off the top connector. NOTE: To gain access to cable put your arm on the left side of TV and in the back there is a cut out for you to reach the cable.
With a A-B switch connect the cable to the input and with two new connectors connect one to the output of the switch to the bottom TV connector (CABLE) and the other cable from the output of the switch to the TV top (AIR & SAT).

Now by switch the switch from A to B will allow you to watch cable or air depending how you set the switch. Remember you also must select on the Winegard selector.

Thanks for the post! I have been struggling with this same problem.
Could you describe what you mean by A-B switch? Where did you get it and the cables you used?
I have to remove the front TV to repair the damage to the TV cabinet that occurred on my trip to Texas so it would be a great time to fix the connections.
A picture would be a great help.
Thanks!

The A-B switch allows you to select cable or air and you can buy them at Radio Shack. The cables I used are from Wal Mart they are three feet long and are used for TV connections. Radio Shack also has the cables and can show you howw to connected them. Also, you have to select AIR on the A-B switch to use your satellite. Sorry no pictures
