I'd disconnect the cable from the TV and short the cable shield to center and then take a multimeter to the outside connection to see if it shows the short. If not. There is a disconnect somewhere between the two.

Passport 217EXP Norfolk Lake trip EXCELLENT!

Hello fellow Campers, well we finally got out and had a camping rip with no rain and I was able to take some pictures! We were able to attach our PUG thanks to this information from you all on this site! It was just the hubby and I so we only put down two of the tents, one to sleep and the side one for some storage. We decided not to use the dinette but turned it into a lounge for us to lay on and relax with a little Fawlty Towers before bed time. Then Stella (one of our fur babies) slept on it while her sister slept at the foot of our bed on her memory foam bed.

We have added a 4 inch memory foam mattress to one bed and the difference has been amazing! Next I will look into the insulation some have mentioned to lay under the bed, on crisp nights we think this would help with the chill. Other than that our heater kept us warm and cozy!

Still learning but thanks to you all we are learning some great tips and tricks! We have 3 more trips before we winterize it has been a great first year with our Passport looking forward to 2018 already!

We were just able to set up our PUGs and we attached the Velcro to the drip molding and it worked great.

Just wanted to update everyone on my situation. We have loved our 217 this summer and enjoyed camping in it all summer with few complaints. We took it into our dealer for the end of the year warranty work. with a list of items that needed attention. When it was done we went to pick it up and he told us that he has ordered a new front cap for the trailer as he noticed some delamination starting on the top of the cap. He said it is very minor now but will get worse in a few years and you will be out of warranty. Keystone approved the work and shipped a new cap to the dealer. I wanted to mention this as he stated the passports are known for this and he inspects every passport they sell before the warranty expires. So the balance of the 217 owners on here may want to do the same and inspect it or have the dealer inspect it. He also mention that they will reinforce the front top section when the replace the cap as he feels there is not enough structure there. He promises it will be better than factory. Keeping my fingers crossed as they rip my new rig apart.

TV and Cable Use

With regard to the Cable TV use, the rear CO-AX connection is for the incoming cable feed from the house or campground. To use it, just connect a good cable to the source, and then go inside.

Pull the TV out, and make sure it is connected to the TV and the output in the ceiling above the TV. You may see a little LED on up there on the outlet with a little black button, that is the Antenna Amplifier. You need to turn that button off.

Then, in the TV settings, go to cable input and search channels.

Similarly, if you want to use the antenna, you crank up the antenna, press in the button on the amplifier in the ceiling, select the antenna in the settings and search for channels. You may have to turn the antenna 1/4 of the way and scan again to pick up better or more channels. Once you have a selection, then you may turn the antenna one knotch or two at a time to try and clean up the signal.

When all else fails,... put in a DVD and get some Popcorn.

Kudos to your dealer for taking care of you instead of just letting it run out of warranty then leaving you upset. If their service dept. is any good, and I bet they are, you should come out better than new - so don't worry too much and good luck.

Dealer finished the replacement of the front cap. I have not picked it up yet will on Saturday but he did tell me that the trusses on the top front were not level causing the delamination and he noted some minor leaking had already occurred. He leveled everything out and applied the new front to it. Hopefully this ends this issue for us. Again I advise everyone to check their unit and have the dealer do so as I suspect this is a common problem.
