Cable question

Is there a switch or something for cable tv? I can't find a signal from inside. The cable tech cannot figure it out.

Turn off the antenna booster somewhere near the bedroom tv. It will look like a cigarette lighter socket with a small button beside it, press the little button, light off for cable/satellite & on/green for antenna.

Sorry, just noticed you have an FL, so I don't know where the booster may be, but it will operate the same.

Mine is located in the Living room cabinet were the TV is. We have two openings one has the surround sound and the other has the switch for cable or TV it has a indicator light which is on when I push it for cable. Hope that helps.

On our 38Rl the booster is located inside the cabinet by the Bedroom TV. You have to remove the TV to really see it such a PITA. I have a wooden dowel that I keep and reach in with that. Push the button with a Flashlight so I do not have to remove TV every time. On my list to move in the spring to different location.

Here is the strangest...I have good signal in my kitchen but very weak signal in my livingroom and my bedroom. Now I have to get someone to check the cable wiring. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you fix it.

On my 2012 RL there were 2 places to hook up cable to and just one of those connections did the both TVs. I have no idea why but in 2012-13 it seemed like there wasn't a real reason why all the trailers were wired different.

Remove a light fixture & fish around, mine was in the light on the right above the bedroom tv, but again on the FL I don't know.
