Outside TV issues

I have a 2016 Winnebago Vista LX 35B.
I have been trying to hook up my computer to the HDMI cable above the driver's head .I get video from this on the tv in the living room but I am unable to get video on the outside tv . I tried all combinations on the switch box and the tv .
What am I doing wrong ?

My guess is, if you check the owner's manual it will say that that hookup only feeds the interior living room TV.

That HDMI cable is only hooked up to the Living Room TV per schematics. You need to hook up to the AUX 2 input of the switchbox.

If you download the schematics from Winnebago they make a very good reference for seeing what is actually going on. They are on the site under Resources.

I have a 2015 Vista 30T. I installed a Dish box in the driver's overhead and plugged the HDMI cable to it to feed the living room TV. The 30T does not have an outside TV, but has the outdoor connections to hook up an outdoor TV. The coax feed for the outdoor TV is located in the passenger overhead. The Dish box also had RCA outputs, so I ran the cable to the passenger overhead to an RF Modulator and then coax to the outdoor TV input. Don't know if this helps, I'm thinking you may have a similar setup.

The owners manual has no info . Just a picture of the switch box

I have a 2015 Vista 27N. The entertainment compartment has 1 HDMI cable that feeds the main inside TV. Mine also had a component cable ( R G B and Composite Video plus L R Audio that goes to the outside TV. No HDMI to the outside TV. The outside TV on mine has an open HDMI connector so I added a HDMI cable that is stowed in the outside compartment that I can connect my laptop to outside.

I also now double feed the component signal to both the outside TV and bedroom TV using a component signal splitter I found on Amazon and audio signal splitters. Works great. I drive the Component cable with my Dish Hopper 3 Sat Rcvr, that has both Component and HDMI outputs that both work at the same time.

Winnebago web site, Resources Tab, Product Information Tab. Fill in Year and model and go from there. Get yourself a thumb drive and download all of the manuals and drawings and schematics for your MH. They come in handy just for answering things like this.
