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!!
That is correct. The fuse only provides 12 volt DC to power your antenna switcher/power supply to the roof antenna. The light tells you the power supply is ON and routing power and signal to the roof.

If both connections on wall plate (front AND rear center) do not work, the coax to the roof or the antenna itself could be shot. (assuming there are actual stations to receive).

Just a thought, did it work after the switch from analog signals to digital?

You may need to buy an analog to digital converter box if your TV is older than 3 years. Mediasonic HW-150PVR HomeWorx ATSC Digital TV Converter Box with Media Player and Recording PVR Function/HDMI Out (Black): Electronics

You may also need to upgrade your antenna with a "Wingman" to get the digital UHF signals in your area.

Well I fixed it.
Bad connection from antenna cable to second cable thatís buried in dicore (thatís that white goop)
at antenna base on roof
I had to dig it out then replaced that short cable, about 5 feet, and new connectors
works very good now.
I saved myself at least $100.00 or more.
Lucky me

Thanks again for all the suggestions, that helped a lot
