Hello fellow FROGgers....it's official, I picked up my Forester 2301 today and it's sitting in my driveway. The dealer did a good job with the pre delivery inspection and explained everything really well. The coach has a King Jack tv antenna, not the old style crank up one that I had on my old camper. It's the digital antenna that stays up all the time (low profile). When the dealer did the walk through with me he showed me the on/off switch on the interior part of the antenna and told me that I had to turn the antenna on to use it. Well, when I got home I fired up the front TV and switched on the antenna....nothing happened. I had the TV do a scan for channels (after making sure the TV setting was on "air" instead of "cable". Still nothing. There are LED lights on the interior antenna mechanism but I didn't see them come on.
I found where the TV is plugged in to power and the antenna inside the cabinet over the door. But, there's also another TV cable plate that has 3 connections with a jumper cable between 2 of them. What's up with that? Do I need to switch the cable from one position to another to use the antenna? I didn't know if the antenna received power through the TV cable or not. Nothing in the literature explained any of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's a photo of the inside antenna portion. (I checked on the roof and didn't see any power cables or connections up there for the antenna.)
Here's the wall jack with the 3 connections and jumper cable.
