Cable tv... always static-y?

My antenna booster is off. Anyone have ideas if the cable TV is always static-y, or is that just a "feature" of most campgrounds? Haha..

Jjlavin, I had to remove the cable cover, as the cable feed was loose at the receptacle. Both cable connections were loose, living and bedroom. Hope it is of help.

Campgrounds we go to have clear cable but not always....... One we go to has nearly 900 sites & the cable is run only a few inches underground (sandy soil) so it is always being cut by campers driving "stuff" into the ground.

No inside right where the cable goes from the TV to the wall that cover. Should have 2 screws in it. Sorry my instructions were bad!

I would think that if it is campground specific, then that answers that. Also, the foil shielding inside the black plastic outer cover, needs to contact properly with the cable end to allow the signal to transmit. Take a look at these pics to see what I mean by that. Notice themetal mesh outer sheath position as well. How to install coax cable end connector fittings

I'm an idiot. There are 2 boosters... one at the wall and one for the antenna. I was only doing the antenna. But I wouldn't have even looked if you suggested to remove the wall plate. All is good! Thanks all

Do you have clear TV with the antenna? If you do turn off the booster to recheck if the signal drop off. My first trip out with my new rig I had fuzzy cable till I figured what position the booster switch needed to be.

Fuzzy Cable

I had somewhat the same problem. Good picture with antenna or DVD, fuzzy when on cable while others had clear picture. Booster on/off, no difference. Except if you pulled on upper right hand corner of TV, then clear picture. Dealer has supposedly fixed, but RV has been in storage ever since so acid test will be when we camp again and have cable hookup. By the way, anyone know how to get flat screen off the wall in Georgetown 335DS? I assume it was just a loose connection but wasn't going to mess with it as long as it was under warranty.

What do you mean when you say there are two different boosters?
