I can assume that the numbers and such were lit up on the new amp and the selector was on antenna when you read no signal strength.
Are you sure the white part of the roof antenna is pointed DIRECTLY at the antenna farm in your area. 10 degrees off and you will not get digital VHF stations. Digital UHF stations are only good for about 10 miles without the Wingman clip-on elements (then 30 miles).
I am concerned that you get 2 stations when direct wired to the TV from the antenna head, but not when using the amp in the middle. That does not sound "right" to me. When using the wall plate amp, have you tried running a long coax between the antenna head and the wall amp; then a new coax from the wall amp to your TV; thus bypassing the wiring in the camper completely?
