There is a signal? booster switch at the literal antenna. Then at the wall cover, I have another switch to boost the line? Not site what reach do independently, but I turned them both off and I get clean cable

I hate autocorrect. Last sentence should read "not sure what each..."

Where exactly are the boosters on a 2014 Sunseeker 3010DS?

I want to add to this, that if you have the JACK antenna, you have a different setup. You don't have that "wall booster" that you have with the batwing.

I'm slowly getting used to the JACK, but don't know if it's any better than the batwing. The advantage to the JACK is you don't have to raise it and lower it.

Also, if the campground is getting digital pushed down to analog, you will have static. Some campgrounds are under that system. BUT..... if your campground is a hostage to COMCAST, well, COMCAST is putting the screws to campgrounds by requiring converter boxes. You need one box per TV, but if you are hooked up to a switchbox, then you can put ONE converter box behind the switchbox, but all of your TV's have to be watching the same thing. (Well, you can still have one TV on cable, and one TV watching a DVD..... or one on cable and one on "over the air" but if you have cable, chances are, there aren't any "over the air" channels available.....)

Some campgrounds will charge you a refundable deposit for these boxes, and some will go on "honor" system, but if you don't return the converter box your credit card will be charged a huge amount, like $200 or so (and those boxes don't really cost that much....)

There is actually only one booster ( amplifier) it is mounted in the antenna. The switch on the wall plate with the cable connection turns power on and off for the antenna mounted booster.

Yes, the Jack will still have a booster with the wall plate. The little dial on the Jack with blue lights is the Attenuator.

If you have a switch box there may not be a booster. It was built into the box.

Yeah, FlyBob is right, I forgot to say that. It's just different from having the "wall booster." But with the JACK, those little blue lights are so bright you have to put tape over them or you won't get any sleep, even when you are in the back and the JACK is in the front. Depending on signal strength, you can turn the blue lights off and still get reception.

Follow the main cable from the front TV to where it goes into the wall. The booster will be a little black button on the wall plate. Unless you are on a switchbox like BClemens says.
