Auto scan on Furrion TV

I am set up in a campground that I have been at before but this time when I run auto scan on the tv all I get is 7 stations and only one is a local main station (CBS). Can't get the local ABC or NBC. Had no problem last time I was here. I'm getting the signal over the air. Anyone have suggestions? The manual isn't much help.

I have seen this issue on my 2016 Wildcat. In the bedroom is a wallplate that has the antennae amp switch. If you remove that plate behind it you will find your amp and all the coax and splitters. Some of your connection are loose and need to be reseated or twisrted on.

It is amazing what even small turns of the antenna dial can do. You might have to try it a few different settings to get the best signal.

thanks for the help. I turned the direction of the antenna and tried scanning again. What a difference. Ended up with 17 channels including all the locals. It's great when something so simple works.

Turning the antenna becomes more critical the farther you are from the television transmitters. I have an app on my smartphone that shows which direction the TV signal is coming from and the signal's strength.

It's an app for android phones called TV Antenna Helper. There is also one called Antenna Pointer, both are free.

I'm sure there must be something similar for IPhones.
