Antenna/cable connections

Does anyone know where I can obtain a coax diagram for my 2004 5342 Dolphin? The problem is the previous owner upgraded the cab tv and just had it connected to a ground mount satellite.Now I have 4 coax cables in the overhead that are unmarked.Also the bedroom tv has a double outlet in the cabinet.I ,through trial and error, have the cab tv working on air.I need to figure out how the various cables are routed to figure out what goes where. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Try this diagran, it shows the TV cable going directly from the connector in the bay with the power transfer switch to the area of the "Box-of-many-buttons" (BOMB) in our 05 Dolphin. You could check this by using a signal tracer.

Ok after reviewing the diagrams sent me,it appears that the previous owner removed the "box of many buttons".When I sort out the wires can I use a splitter to connect antenna and cable "in" wires to the tv "in" or do I need a type of AB switch to separate the signals? By the way this site is great !!
Update:
After doing some research I think I answered my own question,the signals must be separated by an antenna/cable switch.
Thanks again guys !!
