    This is a Re-post of a thread I put up in "Class-A"

    Need some assistance...

    Have a Winnebago Chieftain 27, made in 1987.....
    Am trying to hook up my cable TV antenna through the existing roof connection.... (old antenna screws into the roof)
    My problem is.... where is the termination on the inside of the motorhome ????

    With the replies I got from my other thread... well, they all have NEWer MH's... :(

    I have found a cigarette lighter 12v setup... but, no antenna connection...

    I have a crank-up antenna AT the door.... but, it doesn't terminate in the cupboard near it...

    Any help would be appreciated....

    My 93 Winnebago brave had all of the connections behind the TV.

    This '87 did NOT come with a TV.... if it did, I could find the connections.....
    It's nice that you guys are trying to help.... BUT I need help from someone who actually HAS an '87 Chieftan 27. or HAD one....
    The newer ones OR ones with built-in TV's don't help me....
    Thanks... PAT

    If it did not have a tv, doubt that it has a connection.

    It HAS an external roof-top antenna..... with crank on inside roof.....
    It HAS external connections for Cable In and Antenna Out......
    THEREFORE.... unless Winnie's had money just throw around... installing antennas.... external connectors....

    So far this Forum has had NO answers.... at least to the DIRECT question I asked....
    THE YEAR IS 1987.... WINNEBAGO CHIEFTAN 27......

    I really don't need to know
    "it's behind the TV"..... "on my 1992"..... etc.....

    I need an answer from someone who KNOWS..... not a guessed answer....

    Well sorry I answered and wasted your time. The only reason I said or implied it was where your tv was SUPPOSED to be is that is where I ASSUMED it would be. I still dont understand why they installed an attenna if it has NEVER had a tv inside. I would say that maybe someone has remodled the inside but "I know you don't want opinions". Now if you want to bring it to me I will find it for a charge of course.

    lol..... :)
    I just keep getting answers..... wrong ones :(.... lol
    Need to get a hold of someone who has one.....
    And older MH's didn't come with built-in TV's..... at least the "Fords & Chevy's" didn't
    AND Alabama is just a wee bit far.....

    Your T V connections are behind the mirror in the back bedroom only one there is in mine. Button on top pulls down for tv to set on hope this helps

    I found mine under the radio console, black panel between carpet and bottom of dash console... Makes perfect sense, 12 volt power supply close by and that huge dash as the place to set your TV...
