Question Cable vs. Antenna

Going out for Labor Day Weekend to a new private campground. Our site has a cable hookup, so could it simply be just a matter of connecting the cable to the trailer (and setting the TV to cable mode)?

You should have a switch somewhere near one of your TVs to switch between antenna and cable. Switch to cable and then set up your TV(s) for cable as you suggest.

The switch is likely labeled as a signal booster. That has to be off to get cable.

No switches to be found. As for "signal booster", do you mean the amplifier push button for the antenna?
