Lousy TV signal

Ok I know that's normal with the digital TV signals we have now but I've been going thru all the connections trying to improve our reception on our antenna on our 2013 36ckts. I took the coax loose from both tv's and from the power supply and sprayed each connector with electronic contact cleaner. I reinstalled each connector making sure they are all tight. It seemed to help but I still don't get as many channels on the bedroom tv as on the living room tv. They should be the same. I noticed the coax connected to the power supply going to the second tv is white but it is black coming out of the wall in the bedroom. Where is the connection that changes the bedroom tv from white to black between the power supply and the bedroom?

The loosest connection I found on mine while fishing coax was at the outside connection and on the splitter behind the stereo.

It probably goes to a splitter before it gets to the bedroom. Do you have an outside outlet in a compartment?

We had that issue in our Sabre. Something wasn't wired right. They had to re-run all the cable/antenna wiring in our Sabre during Goshen last year. Much better now.

I found a splitter in the wall behind the bedroom tv.
I think I got it fixed. Virtually every coax connection was loose. At the splitter, power supply and everywhere else. I took all the connections loose and sprayed them with electronic contact cleaner and reinstalled making sure they are all tight. The hard part is finding all the connections but I think I got them all. So far it seems to have helped a bunch. I'm 50 miles from any tv stations and I went from barely getting 1 or 2 channels to over 40.
