Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. First you need to determine if you have the type of antenna that can be raised (batwing style) if so look for the crank on the ceiling where the antenna is positioned on the roof. Second ensure that your antenna booster is on look at the switch plate where the cable to the antenna come out of the wall and see if there is a small push to operate switch push it in and see if you get a light. if it already lite the booster is on.

If you have one of these then your antenna cranks up and rotates.Click image for larger version

Otherwise you might have an antenna like this that can be seen from the ground with a rotate knob on the ceiling.

Or you could have a fixed bat wing antenna that doesn't raise or rotate.

I just replaced one of those on our RV with the bottom unit that Wiscampsin posted.

Since yours isn't a fifth wheel and you can reach the ceiling, I'd suggest you replace it with a crank up model if you don't already have one.

I'm interested in your answer to SeaDog's question about the Over The Air antenna booster. It has to be ON to receive any semblance of signal. If ON, are you sure you selected Antenna on your TV before you scanned for channels?


Are you still with us?
