And your RV is?????

To get a TV signal the Amplifier has to be on:

Looks like this:


Antenna up and scan for channels.

32n Hurricane
My booster is different, only has push button and red light.
I’ve owned 8 different travel trailers in 40 yrs, but never one with 3 TVs.
All the coax RG6 has to go to a splitter... they probably hid it inside the grey tank??
What’s frustrating.. the owners manual is useless.

Yes, the "Owners Manual" is useless. The splitter is usually on the back side of that wall plate with the push button and red light.

In the cabinet above the couch, is the HDMI box, 3 hdmi cables going into the wall.
The booster is right next to where HDMI cables go into cabinet. There is NO RG6 in this cabinet, so I’m sure this is intended to put a CD or satellite device here , to connect to the input spaces on the box.

The owners manual clearly states, this is what’s in the hurricane/windsport models..
I’ve got 3 TVs that can’t find any channel with a scan... yes with the booster on.
I should get at least 6 ... without a booster on.

Miramar is there too

Ours is in the HDMI cabinet on the side wall closest to the TV. I had to call the dealer to find it. Likely not labeled.

The RG6 coax cable is in the wall behind the wall plate you mentioned.

You should have coax connected to each TV. The coax (and TV signal) has nothing to do with the HDMI cables or box.

On mine you have to have the TV set correctly, then scan, plus HDMI box must be set for correct antenna input

The HDMI box doesn’t connect to the Coax.

I’ve set up TVs on all my other RVs no problem,
My first thought is to check the antenna to splitter connection first, and work downstream from there.
If only I can find the splitter...

An addendum sheet in my owners manual would have been a welcome sight

Lol! Love it!
I loosened the plate enough to see behind it yesterday no coax attached, however thanks to your photo, I took the plate all the way off to see behind it and saw the splitter had broken off the plastic.

Not sure if this is the problem but thanks 16ace27!!

So after a little “fixing” the booster was working temporarily...
I’ve got new one ordered.

Thanks everyone!

Ace... you get me to a watering hole and I’ll have drinks for all!!!
