video connector
 
the video connector on the side of my trailer will only send video if i use a video modulator box. it has a 12 volt antenna booster for a roofmount antenna i tried disconnecting the booster and cableing direct with the external video connector to no avail.any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have seen

I think he means the cable connector on the outside of the unit.

If he means the cable connector, I tried running my DTV sat dish through it and it wouldn't work. I solved the problem by adding another "cable connector" to the outside of my TT and running RG6 coax through an A-B switch to the sat reciever. I connected the "cable" RG59 coax to the other side of the switch so I can now use cable, antenna or sat to view on my tv. Remember, if you are using the cable to view, then the antena booster must be turned off. This worked for me.

Being that you ran another cable how did you run it as I am thinking of doing this for my DTV sat hook up??

That is what I figured too... Much of my post seems not to have posted (in case it looked cut off)

The connector he thinks is a video connector is a park-cable RF (Radio Frequency or Antenna) connector. Hence the need for a modulator.

Some rigs have a box with many buttons.. They are grouped according to televisions or destination device.. Example
TV-1 VCR, TV-2 TV-3
And in each group (Save VCR has no VCR button) there are buttons with names like TV-ANT, Cable, SAT, DVD, VCR.

In those units, the box with the buttons.... Does, indeed, have a set of Video Connectors (Red-White-Yellow RCA or Phono jacks usually) and of course.. The box contains a modulator.


Hint to Original poster.. Consumer Video connectors do not have threads.. RF (Specifically "F" type) connectors do (As do a number of others, but they are RF or industrial Video, not consumer video)

I drilled a hole large enough for the coax from the inside of entertaiment center, being careful not to hit any wiring in the outsde wall and being low enough from the outside of the TT so I could reach the connection. Then ran the RG6 coax with the connector through the wall and attached it to the outside cable connector and attached that to the outside wall using the screws provided and the sealing putty type stuff. That gave me a good water tight seal from the outside. The RG6 was then attached to one side of the A-B switch.

Thank you for the info I will give it a try as it sounds kind of simple.
