I had that issue with the TV in the bedroom. the living room worked fine, not so much as blurry pic in the bedroom. Turns out the cable connector in the ceiling was bad. The blue piece which receives the pin from the cable was rotated. I bought a new one at Wally World and all is good with DW and her night time requirement to fall asleep with the TV on. Easy fix, PIA to try and figure out what was wrong.

What model antenna do you have? It should be in your paperwork.

Many are directional and must be pointed at the antenna farm to get good digital. I use antennaweb.org to find the towers and orient my antenna.

If you have a Sensar (batwing type), point the white box AT the tower location. The wings are like wings of a plane and the white amp box is the cockpit.

With a Winegard Sensar type make sure the "boost" or "amp" light is on in the wall plate using the tiny button. This will connect power to the roof antenna and disconnect the outside cable TV connector. Turning OFF the power will disconnect the roof antenna and connect the outside park cable connection to your camper TVs.

Adding a "Wingman" to older Sensar systems will increase digital reception range.

As been posted on other threads, if you have LED lights on, no TV reception. Don't know the reason but it's true for our unit.

Just a suggestion, but did you go through the TV menu and make sure it's on ANTENNA not CABLE? I have made that mistake.

Don't know if OP got his problem solved, but my XLR had the antenna and internal cable reversed at the booster. Caused all kinds of wierdness. At org. PDI, tech commented that it was working fine in another part of lot. (First clue)
Took it in for warranty work and had them check antenna system. No problem found.(clue # 2).Got it back home, no reception. My old trailer always worked fine even though im in a fringe area. Started checking and found 12v on center conductor to gnd at wall outlets. pulled booster, put the cables where they were supposed to go and working great now
