Newbie TV connection problems

Hi, We recently purchased a 2009 Monaco Cayman 38'. It was stock except for replacement flooring. The TV's both worked on Roof Antenna, Cable connection from the rear bay and the Sony Home theater.
Arriving at our winter quarters we signed up for cable which used to be just a coax connection to the rear bay and tuned thru the TV.
The park now has a cable system requiring a box for each TV. A "Technician" came to connect the boxes. After disappearing into the bedroom he announced that was working fine. Then he started fiddling about in the overhead where the coax connections and the satellite dish panel is.

Then he started trying to get the flat screen in the living room off the wall. He couldn't get it off and neither could I. He announced that he couldn't connect that one but he'd leave a box incase I managed to get to the back of the TV.

He left.

Shortly after we tried the TV. No signal. I looked in the overhead and found 4 coaxes dangling and a splitter sitting on the bottom of the cupboard. He'd disconnected everything without marking anything before he did it.

Now the main TV works on the DVD from the home theater box (Sony) but has no roof antenna signal.

Does anyone have a picture of an undisturbed coax setup for the overhead locker over the front entrance door? I'm hoping I can at least restore it to the way things were before this idiot screwed it up.

I'd go to the campground office and demand that things be made right. I don't see the need to disconnect everything and leave it in such a state. It might take a signal generator to fix the screw-up. If the front TV had a coax cable connected to it and that cable ended in the cabinet that has all the disconnected cables, there was no need to access the back of the TV, all connections could have been made there.

A photo of someone else's set up probably won't help because the cables aren't labeled.

Schematics that might help

We full time in a 2008 Cayman 35sbd. Should be somewhat similar. Takes a while to trace it all down if the wires are not marked. I installed some new devices, but left all the connections as is. I'm attempting to attach a couple of schematics that may help you. Got them from Monaco way back. I'm guessing that you have a black box that allows you to switch input from TV Ant, Sat, Aux, etc. This is one of the keys. The cable you alluding to show go directly from the tv to this box for further distribution. Hope this helps.

Note: there are multiple pages to the pdf I attached.

Good luck and let me know if you need something further
