TV in Rockwood

Can not seem to get my TV tuned in. New to RVing and turned TV on, antenna up but only get static. I know it is something simple but thought I would try this forum. Also in TV area are a number of connection for other devices. Not sure. These are not found in any of the material I have. Fifth wheel I bought is 2013 Rockwood Signature. Still feeling my way around. Thanks for any response.

Most roof antennas have a wall plate/amplifier that must be turned on for the antenna to operate correctly. (push button on wall plate)

Is it on?
Also, most newer TV's require you run a channel scan to auto tune to the stations available.
You will need to do this each time as you move about the area as 'over the air' channels change from location to location.

Sorry. But yes I ran the auto scan and still static. Looked like it was adding local channels but nothing.

Yep. Set to Antenna. Maybe I don't have antenna amplifier turned on. Check when I get home. Thanks

Should look something like this, maybe not with the 12V plug. Push the little button and the light should come on indicating amp is on.
