tv antenna booster - where is it?

Is there a TV antenna booster in 3050S? Had lousy TV reception in MH. Same campground in the old RV got more stations. Hopefully there is one somewhere in the RV.

I had my 3051S antenna changed to the Wineguard model with the built in booster before taking delivery.

If its like the 2690, it is on the switch plate where the ant coax from the TV plugs into the wall, its a little push button switch.

There is only one even if you have multiple TVs. It's usually on the front or main TV connection box. Little button with a green light.

Right. You should se a little green LED light on when the booster is on. I just changed my Winegard wingman out and put on a JACK antenna, very easy to swap out, and it works much better, so far. Randy

Yep - I had a little green light along with a button on my old motor home. Went over last night searched everywhere in the RV and could not find any booster switch or button.

It is there somewhere. It is also the switch for controlling whether you use the park cable or roof antenna.

Don't you have a input selector/ switch box somewhere in a cabinet? If so press "cable" button on the front of the switch box for the correct TV you be viewing from.
