TV/radio

We have a 2014 t bud, I can't get any reception from anteanna and only 1 radio station will play. There is no crank for the anteanna and I don't believe it moves. Anyone know any solutions for getting better reception?

I'm not really familiar with that model, but did you make sure the TV antenna booster button is pressed? It should be in the cabinet where your cable hooks up. Without the booster on you can't get many channels over the air ( OTA ).

I can't imagine there is not a crank for the antenna somewhere in there though.

Starting with 2014 models FR began installing what they call "digital antennas", which is just a cop out term for a cheaper fixed antenna. Supposedly omni directional, but it's a very poor performer.

We actually carry a UHF yagi with us, but that's overkill and too much hassle do most folk.

Check out the JACK antenna. It's a replacement unit for the antenna on top of your TT. Camper world, Amazon, etc

We use the Jack and have modified our FM radio to utilize the jack antennae as well. Great radio reception now 30 + stations this was an increase of 27+ stations. This modification came directly from FR who even supplied the parts and instructions for the conversion at no charge.

If all else fails you might what to try a tailgater sat by dish, or any other portable sat system. Not very expensive and with Dish it's pay as you go for the receiver.
As far as the radio. I use an app call tune in radio, you need an external speaker or front port on you radio. the app is free. there's also Pandora, but tune in gives you lost of radio programs.
