Default Antenna cables

I'm thinkng about a simple upgrade for the front TV for my 89SP. Under the center front dash, behind the drawers, there is a double plug coax cable junction box. I use to use one of those for the VCR that we had in the drawer. What is the function of the other plug? If it is a feed from the siganl I thought I might jumper it to the curb side of the drawer enclosure into a junction box and then I would be able to freely access a flat screen connection. I thought I would just set a small flat screen on the dash or on the cabinet behind the passanger seat and stow it away when not in use. Thanks

Its been quite a while since I changed all of that out on my coach, but I think the two connectors are in and out for the VCR. As such, one should be an input from your antenna and I think what you are suggesting should work. I would just hook up a TV and try it.

Yes, one of those goes up to where stock tv is/was. The other one is "incoming" signal, and, at least on mine, it is fed by a switch up in the curbside living room overhead cabinet that selects from either the roof antenna, or from the campground hookup jack (which inside the electrical shore power door). I like your idea of just having a small screen that you simply set up when camped, especially sitting on the livingroom table. Not only because it is a lot of work to install a large flat screen up on that panel where the small stock, crt one was, but also because the viewing angle is so much more pleasant. And actually, you can get 4 people comfortably watching when you figure 3 on the couch and one in the turned drivers' seat. I installed a 32" up on the front panel (see projects, below), but I'm considering a projector in the street side overhead, and a pull-down screen under the curbside overhead. I figure I can get a huge picture (maybe 40+ inches), and the nicer, no-neck-strain viewing angle, for totally enjoyable home theater on the road! Also at a low cost, as you can pick up a good used projector and screen for a few hundred bucks nowadays.
