I have a 2015 Thor Chateau 31W and I am trying to locate the antenna splitter, all I have found is switch plate for antenna booster and antenna coaxial connections but no splitter. I have a dish satalite receiver with one cable going into it then one out but I have 3 TVs in the unit one outside one in the back bedroom and one outside in a compartment so has anyone found the location to send signals to all the TVs

Splitters are usually built into the ant. P.S. (your wall switch thingy)
It should have an output for each TV.

Here is a neat diagram of the ANTENNA WALL PLATE my two trailers have...

I never had much luck trying to use the so called SAT TV outside connections... Neve could get past the outside trailer TV splitter to grab the required SAT ANTENNA DC VOLAGE to operate the dish...

The only way I could ever get my portable SAT TV to work was to run two RG cables into the trailer from the two SAT OUTPUTs on the dish head and connect to a SAT RCVR at each location we wanted to watch SAT TV. Then I would run VIDEO cables from the SAT RCVR to the VIDEO INPUTS to the TV we wanted to watch it on. Then use the TV control to select the video input for SAT TV or CABLE for regular TV coming in from the cable or outside Batwing antenna...

Are you asking how to send satellite signals to all three sets using the antenna splitter?

Ok, thanks for the picture, looks like it may be behind the amplifier switch. I’ll pull it and see. My problem is there is a satellite dome installed on top of the roof am
Nd all 3 TVs are connected to it, the satellite receiver is connected via coaxable antenna cable and all TVs have a snowy picture but if I run an HDMI cable from receiver to big TV up from its crystal clear for that TV

If your sat box has a coax output to feed to a television you can plug it into the middle coax position on the back of the panel shown. Of course this removes your park cable input. Your sat box would have an output on a specific channel on the tv most likely and you change channels via the box of course.

You must have the wall box turned off when using the satellite signal or you will get snow from the roof antenna interference.

If this information works for you there are some simple modifications to the wall plate while you have it out that will make things more flexible

Is the picture snowy on OTA antenna or cable?

OK Fine on OTA, so you know to turn off the booster before you try to scan for cable channels, yes?
