New owner.....need tv cable advice

We are new to owning a MH. We bought a 2002 Monaco LaPalma 36ft and love it!! However we are having trouble with the tv cable setup. (We do use our Tailgater / Dish Network for the exterior bay TV). We would like to at least hook up to cable at the parks to watch on the interior TV's though. We have yet to be able to get it to work and we are not sure why. We think there is a cable hooked up wrong somewhere but we just aren't sure. Can someone help us with how the cables inside, etc are all supposed to look? Thanks so much!!!

RV cable systems can be a nighmare, particularly if modified by a previous owner.
Question . Have you tried to get park cable in from the , hook up: usually in the power cord bay to the TVs ?
The reason I ask is , many RVs have a cable /antenna booster switch , in the system and that switch will not pass any kind of sat. signal. Park cable , will go through.
The switch, has a cable hook up on the front, 12v lighter type socket, a small "on" button and an LED indicator light. The on , is to power up the booser in the antenna.
If you have this switch and want to feed sat. signal through you have to by-pass it.

Monaco was notorious for mixing up the connections in the power bay. You should have a "cable in" and "sat in" connection in the power. On mine and others, these were backward when compared to the labeling.
