We're now set up in Gettysburg, PA. First time trying to use cable. Plugged my cable into the cg tower on one end and plugged it into the connection marked "cable" in the service center. We haven't been able to get any cable stations. Any ideas? Thanks.

Are you sure the parks cable even works? We've even had to use the antenne when the cable reception was too poor to use at some parks.

on my trailer I have 3 conecting points in the service bay. Use the lowest one and it might work (mine isn't marked). Also turn off the antenna boosterEdited by: Dave&Ginny

Have you programmed each TV for cable? It's on SetUp in the TV's menu and you also need to set the channels again each time you move

To get cable I had to pull the TV out and move the coax cableto the other outlet.

Yes, as Dave said-make sure the antenna booster is off. I have messed this up several times.

It's above the bedroom TV to right on our RL. Push it in for cable - green light off, and on for the TV.

We have the FL. Can't find anything near the large TV or the small one in the rear bedroom. Must be looking right at it. Very frustrating.

I don't know where the antenna booster is on your model. Ours too is in the cabinet by the bedroom tv. It is built into the side of the cabinet, up high and is hard to see. Most probably near that bedroom tv somewhere. Hope this helps.
