You might consider staying local to the RV dealer, unless the beach is local, for a night or two in case you need to bring it back to them to address any issues.

The Seiki TVs installed do not have QAM tuners and on many campground cable systems a converter box is required.

Search the forum for Seiki and you will see numerous postings about this issue.

You can check with the campground. Some of them have converters you can use during your stay.

Most folks having the issue have replaced the Seiki TV with one that includes a QAM turner. At some point in time however, that will stop working as more cable companies are moving to encrypted broadcasting that will require a converter box.

As a note, the campground that I am currently staying at does not have digital broadcasting on their cable system. When I run a channel scan on my televisions I get 60 channels and they are all Analog. The TVs do identify the digital channels but they come in with a message "no signal being broadcast".

So this goes to the question, are you getting Analog channels but not digital or are you getting nothing. If it is the latter then the QAM tuner, or lack thereof, is more than likely the reason.
