You sprayed inside the coax plugs at the antenna with WD40?

WD40 is non-conductive so a short is not possible.

You are correct sir. It is an insulator and that means that an open circuit is possible. Wasn't thinking about a short circuit.

WD stands for water displacement and the 40 is to denote that was the 40th attempt at a formula that would work. It was developed for outer space use. It technically is not a lubricant although WD-40 does make other products at do lubricate but rather a rust preventer.
The purpose was to push water out and replace it with a secret formula of liquid to make it non conductive.

The way I look at it is that there is enough metal to metal contact on the center conductor and it would take more than WD40 to insulate it.

so, there are no fuse to check on this TV booster?
We all think its the wire or box that has the on off light (that works)

Thanks for all the ideas of what to check,
before I bring it to the RV repair place and suffer all the over priced and incompetent service Iíve come to expect.
I'm gonna have to look for a different repair shop.
I would be surprised if it was something easy and quick to fix.
Wish me luck!!
