Jack Antenna woes?

This just happened. 2013 328TS. Using Jack antenna that we had installed at the dealership. Front TV is getting 16 over air channels and back room TV only gets 3. Toshiba TV back there. So weird. Doesnt do that on park cable and first time we haven't gotten same channels on both. Is that weird?

How old is TV in rear that only receives 3 channels? It sounds like the tuner is not able to receive all digital signals.

It's always a mental challenge when we change from the Jack Antenna, park cable or sat.

Have to tell each TV which (Ant, Cable, Sat) input to use.
Then have to change the A/B box.
Then have to do a search for channels on all 3 Toshibas with different menus.

Sometimes I get it right the first try which only takes about 10 minutes....WHAT A PAIN!

TVs are new. MH is a 2013 328 TS. Front TV has 19 channels, outdoor TV has 16 channels and back TV has 3 channels. I thought they would all get the same number of channels.

You likely have some bad connectors on your coaxial cables or they are not tight causing the signal to dissipate the further back in the coach you get.

Makes sense. Thanks! Don't have that problem with cable...or at least didn't.
