    I live in a triple wide manufactured home. There was Coax ran by my ISP to the walls of each room with a wall plate, but I cant for the life of me find the Junction box for all of the cables. I have looked outside along the exterior wall, and in every place it could possibly be. I have Dish satellite TV, and they ran their own Coax outside of the home. I need to access the junction box and cable ran by my ISP to change the location of my internet modem to another room. Any suggestions on where it could be?

    Check near the opening of the crawl space.

    If its a trailer it will likely be under the house grounded to the trailer frame somewhere.

    In most cases the splitter will be in one of 2 places, under the trailer (I wish it be at the crawl space entrance but likely not) or near the separated power meter post.

    Tools needed
    Either 2 pairs of small pliers (not jewelry or needle nose just standard pliers capable of covering 7/16" to 9/16" for normal drops sometimes hardline will require bigger tools) or one pair of pliers and a 7/16" open ended wrench.

    Do not try to break the things they will I assure you aluminum fittings are not that strong, but use your wrists to loosen it and snug it back up.

    Also wear a hoodie or covering you do not care about as if you have to crawl in you will get covered in all kinds of stuff. Spider webs, dryer lint, etc...
