Front tv
« on: October 07, 2018, 05:18 PM »
Got my first motorhome and the front tv was gone..I am installing a new 19" flat screen tv...have questions about the tv cable hook ups..there is 3 coax cables in the bubble hole where old tv was at..one has a green strip tape on it..the second one has red strip tape on it and 3rd one goes to a regulator behind pass side sunvisor that has a male end to screw a coral cable onto with a little switch that has a red indicator light beside it and a cigarette lighter plug..
Where do I hook each of these coaxial cables to? Assuming one of them goes to tv but what one and then where does other 2 go?

The regulator is the antenna amplifier and it should have one coax wire coming in from the antenna and then on going out to an AB box which splits it to the front TV, the rear TV and the VCR. I should still have the books on mine but I am getting ready to turn in, been a long day, I will look tomorrow and also look at my setup. Mine is an 89 Chieftain.

Sounds like the selector box is missing.The three cable wires are,tv antenna booster,2nd tv,cable tv or satellite from outside.You will need to connect the front tv to the Tv booster or the selector box if you add it.

You also need a digital ready TV although I think they all are anymore. Giving away my age here. I have heard that the old antenna's work just fine for digital signals so fancy (read expensive) add ons are not needed.
