Antenna amp is off. Cable works when plugged directly to tv but tv will not find cable channels when cable is hooked to the main inlet port on coach.

Unfortunately it sounds as if your amp is bad. You will need to pull it and also the splitter to check cable connections. You can buy a coax continuity checker at Home Depot for $10-$20. I found the short cable from the amp to the splitter in my coach was bad. (My splitter was behind the microwave).

If you are getting shocked (tingling, not burning) it is not from your amp unless someone connected AC voltage to the amp instead of DC voltage, which of course, would explain all your problems. If you have 12 VDC going to your amp as required, switch your voltmeter to AC measurement and see whay you get. You could have a problem with your converter not properly rectifying/filtering the 120 VAC to 12 VDC, which could also be the source of your problems.

The amp is actually in the head of the batwing antenna, but generally when we say "amp" we are talking about the circuit board with the on/off switch, LED, 12 volt, and coax connections.

Not sure what wire you are talking about. There should be 2 wires to measure 12 VDC:

You should have 12-15 VDC on the red (+) to white (-) wire and almost no AC. If that is not the source of your "tingle" then remove the coax cables and measure AC voltage from center conductor to outer shield. Someone may have run a screw through a 120 VAC line and coax line.
