ABI St David 2nd TV aerial point

Post by MikeKGS » 1 year ago

Hi

we've just completed moving in to our ABI St David, I believe its either 2012 or 2011. We've mounted the TV over the fireplace instead of the mirror to make use of the extra hidden aerial socket up there and plug, and it looks great!

However, when I plugged the aerial in to the TV from the socket up there I don't get anything at all. It appears to be not wired up somehow. I'd assumed this would just split the feed to the main socket lower down, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Does anyone know what I would need to do to get that working?

Thanks

Mike

As you have just moved in to your van I suggest you speak to the Sales team and ask them to get it fixed for you.
Is the additional socket a 'factory fitting' or has it been done by previous owner?

If for any reason the sales team can't help then you need to check the cable connections by removing the socket from the wall.
Is there and sign of the supply 'splitting off from the feed before it enters the van? Is there a direct line between the two sockets? If necessary can you add/replace the cable by feeding it from the main socket?

If you find this Forum useful - pass the word to other owners. If you don't - tell me how it can be improved.

Thanks, those are some good starting points to look at/ ask people about.

I should have thought of at least some of that myself. :)

we had the same system in our ABI Connoisseur, the cable arrives at the lower point, carries on to the fireplace one and then on to the bedroom. Found that ABI hadn't tightened the connections very well, so had problems with reception, especially in the master bedroom

Was there an easy way to tighten it?

Just took all three aerial sockets off and tightened both clamp screws on each.

Mike,
As you have just upgraded the van surely sales will send a maintenance guy down to sort that for you FOC. If there's a TV point fitted from new it should work.
I'm not on site for a few weeks and can't even offer to pop down to take a peek for you.

we're not down until the 24th now either. I'll call the office and get it added to the snag list.

Thanks :)

That's when we are back. If you get grief getting it sorted just drop me a line and I'll try and help with the limited tools at the caravan. I'll be in the car over Easter, not the van.
