I have the TV overhead. In the right compartment, I have the TV plug and power antenna box and the TV wires are plugged in here. The TV works off the antenna and also if I have the MH plugged into cable it also works off cable.
But , in the left compartment over the driver, I also have 2 coaxial or cable wires. These are'nt and have never been plugged into anything. Does any body elses Damon have this and what are these cable wires for?

I would guess it is the wiring for a satellite receiver.

Max049 the second wire is for the CD milti- changer for your radio/CD player in Dash. We also have what you discribed. Ours holds 12 cd's which is great for going down road and listening. Happy New Year to ya!

Thanks guys, I guess it makes sense that the wires could be for a satellite receiver. I want Direct or Dish but am having problems getting it in my home, have cable now, and they have both been out and they both have more problems installing then carter;s got little pills, one of which is because I have cable internet. I can't justify paying for cable at home and Direct just for the MH.
But getting back on course, it seems like if I had a dish, I'd plug it in , in the compatment where the cable input is. and that goes to the compartment where the other cabinet is. So it seems like I would put the receiver there.
I probably got you guys confused now ; and me too. Maybe they put extra wires so I could put it on either side.
Oklahoma MR C, are you thinking that one onf the coaxial cables goes to a CD changer? I have a radio/ CD player in the dash but I don't think it has any where to plug a coaxial cable into it so I guess I don't understand how that would work
Happy New Year to all you guys too and thanks again.

One cable would be from the Dish on roof to your receiver and the other would be from receiver to your TV control box if you have one.
A CD changer should have a 6 pin plug to control unit which would go to radio CD control section.
