What type co-ax?

Will be going to a park that has "cable" hook-up. Do I need a different co-ax cable to hook to cable, or will the one I use with my Winegard satellite work? I know I have separate hook-ups on my Raptor 300MP for cable, or satellite, but didn't know if there was a difference in the cable itself.

Your installed cable will work fine with cable TV.......RG59 cable is generally used for antenna/cable.....RG6 is used for satellite....I imagine most trailer makers use the RG6 for both now

RG-6 is pretty much the standard now days. It is typically used for sat/cable. RG-59 used to be used for cable connections, it's possible that Keystone still uses it as a cost saving measure. RG-6 has a better shielding as well as a better center conductor. It provides a cleaner signal and transfer data better, especially the digital signals used these days. Regardless of what is internal to your RV, connecting to the RV with RG-6 will work for both applications.
