Trying to figure out TV air and cable

I have a 2018 Cedar Crewk with 3 RVs. My bedroom and outside RV have snow. I am assuming a weak signal on cable possibly because the signal is split between the two. Inside living room works great. I was trying to install an amplifier. I only have air at home so I have all three TVs playing air digital channels. I disconnected two of the cables coming feom the connector with the switch booster and none of the TVs lost signal. Now I assume the TVs must have an internal antenna?!?! How can I figure out which cables go to which TVs? How are the TVs wired? Why am I getting snow on two TVs?

Great questions!
I think you should go back to the dealer. It sounds like the cables were not connected correctly.
There should be, probably near the main TV, a connector plate with a power button, and an indicator light.
This needs to be on to power the built in antenna amplifier. I would check that first.

Just to be clear, the Power Booster is only turned ON when getting OTA (antenna) programing. When your TV feed is cable, turn the Power Booster OFF. Have you performed a "channel search" using that feature found in the TV menu? This will be required for each TV and typically every time you change locations while camping.
