TV Antenna issues

I bought a new Blue Ridge 3775 camper. The tv antenna is not adjustable I have been told. We do not get a number of channels we received when we had our own 'adjustable' antenna that had a crank on it and you could turn it. The booster is on as well. Can anyone help??????????

I would check the antenna coax connectors first, some have been found defective.
Is this the omnidirectional round TV antenna?

A directional antenna has gain in one direction. An omnidirectional antenna compromises that gain for reception in all directions. In a nutshell, omnidirectional antennas won't receive signals from as far away as a directional antenna.
