Boost "on" is required to get any signal from the roof antenna. This is because it also acts as a switch between the roof antenna and the cable TV input on the side of the camper.
If you are getting a TV signal with the Booster "off" and no cable hooked up you must be very close to the TV tower and picking up signal through the cable wiring in your camper.
There are several great threads here on how the TV antenna system actually works: Like this one: Winegard wingman antenna booster
and web sites that give true bearings to the station antenna towers in your area.
