Default New guy with an old camper

Bought a used Class C, Ultra SE model. Previous owner threw out ALL the books.
Found some info online, but have a question.
Actually sent an email to Gulfstream, but since 2006, not much help.

My question, under the fridge, there are many wires cut.
Trying to get antenna wires working, traced one to back bedroom tv, and other to outside camp ground connection.
Guess there was some type of video switch they wanted to keep.
Tried searching on my RV, but do not see any info.
Anybody?

Most likely a signal booster.

Default Convert it to DTV

If it were me I would order a complete DTV antenna system. You should find a 12 volt wire in the hole with the coax cables you discribe. That is needed. The King Jack antenna works great if installed correctly.



More to follow.

Default Non Amplified TV coax switch

Then get one of these to fill the hole in the wall.

It is marked for which cable goes where. The 12 Vdc will be sent to the King Jack through the coax. You can tell if you have it connected correctly if the lights come on on the King Jack.



I used to get maybe 4 channels here at home before I upgraded. Now I het about 30 channels.

I have 1997 C Yellowstone Ultra and have replaced ALL of the RG59 coax cable with RG6 for better satellite picture, so I can tell you the wiring path in mine. The park outlet is on the rear driver side near the gas tank. The wire goes down the interior wall into a metal channel and across the width of the motorhome coming up an empty pipe chase behind the galley venthood that has all of the controls and LED readouts. The coax then goes behind the cabinets over the door to the cabinet over the dinette, terminating in an A/B switch and power amplifier in the false bottom of the cabinet over the dinette area. The roof antenna line comes into the same area. There is a single feed up to the TV set in the cabover area. I modified mine to have two feeds in the front, and another line to rear bedroom, and added satellite receiver, BluRay Player: all switchable. Your interior layout may be very different but there was plenty of space to pull wires after I figured out the factory design.

I just got a 2006 ultra as well. It has been a fight, but the manual is on line.
the real problem is finding parts for sale !! Don't have an answer for that one yet. Anyone have a site for, say, Guardian RV 3600 generator parts?
