No TV

I recently had my 29M in for service, and today is the first day I have tried to watch over the air TV.

I'm pretty sure the little green light on the antenna plate needs to be on for the over the air TV, but pushing the switch a few times has not worked. Every once in a while I get a little flash of green, but it won't stay on. It kinda looks like it's on in the picture, but that's from the flash.

Is there supposed to be something connected to this Jack? If so, where does it need to go?

Thanks.

you may have a loose ground wire from your batteries, but also check the rear of this cover for a loose wire - it runs on 12v.

There is a 5 amp fuse in a holder behind the panel. When you pull the panel - behind it you will find a coax and several 16 ga wires. The red wire has a fuse in it somewhere. The power wire on my coach comes from the hot side of the light switch for the kitchen under cabinet lights and that wire is fused by the interior light fuse at the power center.

OK, so this is usually referred to as a booster join-tenna / polyswitch in that it can merge two discrete inputs to generally 2 outputs.
Behind the wall there are connections for OTA, and perhaps park cable or external Sat. connection. There is also another feed to a (bedroom?) TV.
Amp ON enables the OTA booster. Off allows throughput of cable or Sat. to both TVs.

*The TV near this plate connects to the F-connector via coax, to the TVs F-coax (NTSC) connection. Other HD items may be using HDMI.

You'll need to, through ea. TVs setup menu, select source, TV/ OTA As opposed to HDMI. Then run a channel scan for each of these modes of operation (OTA or cable, source material).
Best of luck

Wingard type equivalent manual: (*May have optional 12VDC lighter plug)

OK, Here is what I foumd.

There is not a ground lug on my King Jack TV Antenna Power Injector. Ground is provided by the shield on the cables. All of the connectors on my assembly were loose. I mean real loose. Sloppy loose. I tightened them all up and now all is working. 12v line attaches to card, return/Ground line attaches to air.
