THOR #14548
Angry Satellite Dish Tailgater

I have a 2018 Quantum Thor LF31, I purchased a King Tailgater it does not work when I plug into the RV, It will work directly plugged into any TV manually. I am trying to get it to work using the outside jack. This RV has 3 TV's 2 inside and 1 outside and the antenna that is installed with RV.

I am trying to find a way to get this to work but cannot find the splitter in the RV to unplug wired antenna to see if this is the problem with connection of satellite.

I also cannot find any schematics on the wiring diagram for the tv system.

Need help

Your problem is most likely the splitter. I have seen where a green label splitter is available and will work. Usually the splitter is located behind the cable outlet in the cabinet near the main TV. The one with the antenna boost switch. Have you tried looking in the documents for your coach in Thormotorcoach.com under owner resources? They had a pretty good schematic for the TV wiring for our rig.

You need to unhook the main cable that is coming from the outside and hooks to the TV antenna amplifier. I ran the main line to an a & b switch. From that switch I run one line back to the amplifier and the other to my satellite receiver.
This wall I can go back and forth depending on what I want to watch.

The splitter in my challenger works with my direct TV system.
