Little black button on the cable panel. Push for cable. Push for air

My TV in the bedroom would not work on my Thor chateau. They did not hook it up to the cable system in the coach. So I went to the dollar store and got a $14 antenna in the shape of a T and all the channels came in and it worked perfect.

By "Not work"? Did you use the auto search and not find any channels? (Some of the cheap TVs Thor installs don't have QAM tuners and thus won't get any cable channels.)

None of my 3 tvs worked with cable. Im installing a new 39" in the living area, replacing the 32" thats there now, a little later today. Ill replace the other 2 sometime in the future. These will have to stay 32". No room to go bigger.

For the money we pay thor should give us tvs that work

Exactly.

The possibility of not having a QAM tuner in the TV's wasn't covered in the OP's problem of:
