New Cardinal, New member, wife needs Help

Good afternoon, we just bought a new 3850 Estate and before delivery I had to leave Arizona to work for awhile. My wife did the walkthrough and the dealer helped her set it up in a RV Park in Yuma. I always did all the setup so now she is struggling with the TV setup. She cannot get hardly any channels to scan and is hooked up to cable. Can anyone tell me if there is a antenna amplifier and where it might be? Thanks in advance, I知 sure I値l have many more questions until I get back down there and then I知 sure I値l have even more.

every unit I have ever owned the amplify is on the wall behind the tv in the main living area and has a small push button to turn on and off with a small light to confirm on.

On my Wildcat, the booster button is on a faceplate on the wall behind the tv in the bedroom. If she's hooked to the campground cable, this booster must be off... then she has to set the TV's input to Cable... then she has to scan channels.

on our cardinal there are three coax jacks in the water compartment. one is for cable, one is labelled satellite, and truthfully i do not know what the third one is. she may want to move the park cable input to another of the jacks and try again. also, when you scan on the tv you may have to use the menu to set the scan to cable rather than over the air. some tv's also have option to scan either analog channels, digital channels, or all. use the scan for all.

FYI check the Jack's behind the panel to see if they are hooked up to anything. I had Dish sat installed on my Cardinal and when it wasn't working we that the sat Jack was hooked to nothing. We ended up having to take is lining in storage out to hook into the tv. Works great now . Apparently they don't hook sat up at the factory.
