Hi All newest problem,
Cannot get any channels using the antenna. I have been on roof disconnected coax up there and did a connectivity test behind tv. All is good there but I do not seen to have a booster switch or else I can’t find it. Not sure if that is issue.
Btw antenna is one of those circular multi directional so should not have to rotate antenna.
Any suggestions
Thanks again
Peter

Many places there is no TV reception, are there others nearby that have reception. You might not have an amplifier on that poor excuse for an antenna.

Well we have a amplified flat panel antenna which was worthless. Causing my wife considerable angst. I finally stuck it in a window and it works great. The body of our RV was blocking the signals.

Are you sure the TV input is on TV? You have run auto scan?

Don't have a Cameo, but do have a Carriage trailer. Our antenna is a Winegard and the booster is inside and at the bottom of the pantry cabinet. It looks like a 12 volt receptacle and a coax connector on a wall plate. It has a small push button switch and a green indicator light.

By the way, from the factory, the antennae was wired in such a way that it would never work.

Actual the wall plate with the TV booster is a power supply for the booster that is in the antenna itself. This power supply also has a splitter and electric switch between cable input and OTA antenna input. To use the antenna the light has to be on indication it is sending the 12V DC to the booster in the antenna. The the TV has to be on TV and a channel scan has to be done to picked the channels in any given location. The two trailers that we currently have the power supply is in the bedroom.

The backside of the power supply has three coax connections. Cable in, Antenna in, and splitter output. The front has a second splitter output.

The new multi-directional antennas on new trailers are junk. They don't work. Friends went to Walmart and bought one of their antennas and it works great.

I have same RV as you do. Our booster is on switch plate to the right of the couch as your looking at the couch (and looking at back of RV). Little black button that turns the booster on.

We're on our 3rd Carriage. All have had the booster in the same spot. The first two ('02 & '06) had a black on/off button with a green light that illuminated when the booster was on. The current RV in the signature has a red button only; in is on and out is off. Much preferred the previous models but it is what it is.
