As a general rule, you do not want to exceed 50 feet of coaxial cable (including RV wiring) between the receiver and antenna, since power is being transferred as well. Any longer than 50 feet may result in a loss of signal quality, and in some cases complete signal loss.
RV wiring varies from one to the next, so we cannot guarantee it will work by going through your RV wiring although many do. If you try to connect through RV wiring and do not receive a strong enough signal, try using a shorter coax cable between the antenna and RV. If all else fails, try a direct connection.
