Tv loses signal

Would like to know if anyone has had a problem with their tv going out while on air antenna and booster after you put on a light, microwave ,or bathroom fan. We have a 2013 rockwood 8280 fifth wheel and have this problem when camping when cable TV is not available. Any ideas to solve this problem would be appreciated.

Did not try that . The tv picture goes out, tv power does not go out. We get a weak signal reading on TV when picture goes out. Thanks for your help.

I think out trailers are the same. On mine, there's a picture frame look'n cable that attachs to tv and has a screw in one end that is barily hidden by bottom of tv.....keeps it from jump'n off wall when travel'n....Then, grasp the bottom of tv and push up on both sides...sometimed you might have to add a palm tap to the bottom, and a little wiggl'n

I'm assum'n they stayed with the same size and mount. This one has 3 tabs that grab the wall part...2 at top, 1 each side, and a longer one at the bottom. Original tv was a Toshiba, kind'a heavy, now using Samsung....lighter. Try tight'n the connections, but there is a splitter in the cable behind ant booster that is difficult to reach...I had to use cable as a handle to drag it down...it's between inner and outer walls of cabinet
