most likely there was or is a DVD player or cable(satellite) that fed this cable.Maybe even Tv antenna booster someplace . GBA!SVJ

We are wondering if our Vizio smart tv won’t pick up an antenna signal.  Will investigate tomorrow.

I'm sure older retros may differ, but most recent ones, like our 2018 177SE, have a plastic plate with an HDMI connector (lower left on photo).  It comes from the DVD player/Radio on the wall to right of the bed.  You connect the jack on the wall to an HDMI input on the TV, and you can play DVD's in the player and watch on the TV.  Works fine.  HDMI is NOT for antenna signals.

For an antenna, most all TT's have an amplified antenna built in, or at least a jack on the outside of the trailer.  If it's just a plate with a single Type F connector (top right in photo), then connect an RF cable from the jack to the TV's antenna input.  If you don't see a built-in antenna on the roof, you probably need to connect a signal cable to an external F connector on the TT.

For my 177, there's both a built-in amplified antenna, and an external jack.  That means there's a small white pushbutton switch beside the F connector, and a red LED light.  To use the built-in antennna, push the button, and make sure the red light is on.  To use the external jack, push the button so it's out, and the light is out.  Then connect the external jack to a big antenna or to the cable service provided by the RV park.
