Greeting and Welcome

We need a little more info.

Is the bedroom tv a Seiki?
Do you have an a/b switch to control the tv inputs?

What do you mean by "Connect". Does it not hook up or does it hook up but not work?

"Front tv connects to cable but second tv wonít connect in bedroom."

Pretty sure campground, that's why I asked if the second tv is a Seiki, they won't connect to some campground cable.

Seiki TV's connect to all campgrounds (in my experience). Thor's cable connections in my Hurricane were sub par. I ended up changing the splitters and adding new powered cable/antenna switch - now works great at ALL campgrounds.

Do not blame the TV!

I had to tighten all the cable connections when our Gemini was new. Some took 3 or more turns. I thought they just was poor quality tvs that couldn't get reception. After tightening the cable connectors they all work fine.

As abjbrtd pointed out there are many cases where it is right to blame the TV. Not all Seiki TVs came with QAM tuners - a well documented problem. That may not be the OPs problem in this thread, we may never know as he seems AWOL, but it may be.

TEst

A quick test - run the cable wire to the TV - bypassing the cable hookup thru the RV - This is what I did to make sure the TV worked.
