    Question How to connect cable TV

    Ok, the obvious answer didn’t work so… and searching the web didn’t help… and it led me here.

    I can’t figure out where the wires from all the “f” connections in my new to me 2018 Reflection 337rls go. Nothing in the manual.

    Connecting a cable from the campground directly to the cable box works.

    Connecting to the “cable” connection in the wet bay and the cable box to the “cable” connection in the left cabinet over the TV does not work.

    What is the “bypass” connection in the wet bay? Where is the other end?

    What about the “cable” connection on the dry side of basement?

    Right now we have campground cable coming in a window but that is not a good solution.

    Help?

    Turn the antenna booster off. In my 2021 320MKS, it is behind the main TV. It is a red push button switch that turns off the little red LED next to it.

    The cable wiring varies per year and model.
    It's something like in one of these DIY diagrams.

    That was very helpful. The last diagram showed that we can use the “sat” connection in the wet to the living room. Gonna try it now. Let all y’all know soon.

    You will need to move the coax from the top connected at the TV to the bottom one for that to work.

    Worked! Thank you.

    Side note… we have been living in this trailer since May 9. We are new to rv trailers and systems but I have been a member of the rvforum.net for over a year. Bunch of helpful folks over there. I learned lots.
    We are between homes for the next several months and finally had time to sign up with cable at the campground last week. We hooked it up but no joy and no time till today to ask the campground for help. In troubleshooting they ran the wire in a window and it worked. Next up is figuring a multiuser cell to lan setup for t-mobile & Verizon.
    Thanks for the help.
