    December 11, 2019We finally began to troubleshoot our cable TV problem. The channel search process is inconsistent. If the RV park says we should have 60 channels, our channel search will find 49; the next search will find 42; and the next search will find 37. A handym...  more

      phoneman828 December 11, 2019 The first thing I would do is disconnect a cable from your wall plate and you're outside connections and redo connectors and test it again the connectors can be bad even though they look like they're still on their good you can be losing the signal that w...  more

        Diana & Michael December 11, 2019 When you say "redo" the connectors (the threaded bits at either end of the cable) do you mean replace them?  Yes we know the split to the bedroom may be the problem.  We don't know where the split is located in the wall.  Thanks for your suggestion.

      MRJohnston December 11, 2019 Ditto on the splitters. We had similar problems and when I pulled the paneling off to expose the wires the manufacturer had installed two 4 port splitters. I hear that every time you add a splitter you cut the signal in half. I was able to eliminate o...  more

        Diana & Michael December 11, 2019 Each splitter cuts the signal in half.  Wow.  Good to know.  I'm thinking we'll have to schedule an eventual service appointment with the manufacturer to remove the walls and locate the splitter.  Thanks so much for your comment.

        MRJohnston December 12, 2019 Glad to help. I’m certainly no expert. What I do know about splitters though is that any unused ports MUST be terminated (meaning a terminator cap installed on each unused port). My splitters we’re located behind a panel in the entertainment center area.

        Diana & Michael December 12, 2019 Thanks so much MRJohnston and phoneman828.  I looked again at all the wires attached to the cable wall plate behind the TV.  I found two splitters and they both need to be terminated.  Your help has narrowed down the probable source of the ...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham December 12, 2019 We know the wiring on our motorhome because all of the old smaller RG59 coax cable has been pulled out from the walls and replaced with larger RG6 to allow satellite signals to pass.  Cable from the outside port went direct to a splitter in the false...  more

      phoneman828 December 12, 2019 When I said to replace the ends I meant that you can cut the old connector off and put a new connector on there you'll just need the right tools but first thing I would do if you found splitters I would figure out how many splits I need if each one and go...  more

      Diana & Michael December 13, 2019 phoneman828, we had a mobile RV repairman visit today, and the handyman with the cable signal meter was here as well.  They reconfirmed the TV cable inside the walls was bad, either the connectors or the cable itself.  Instead of replacing the c...  more

        Jim & Sharon Ham December 13, 2019 Sounds like the fix means that when you leave this RV park, you will have to do some cable swap at the back of the TV set.  Do you have a rooftop TV antenna to pickup off the air TV signals?  Winegard Batwing antenna are the cheapest and most co...  more
