Where is the antenna booster on a 831fkbss. I am hooked up to the cable in a rv park and the channels are fuzzy, someone suggested turning off the booster. Any help would be appreciated.

Your booster is not really a booster. It is the power supply for the antenna on the roof. It is also a switch to switch between the roof antenna and the campground's cable if they have it.

Switching the power OFF will kill your roof antenna and CONNECT you to the park cable.

Where are you in WI? You should be getting something unless you're sitting in a valley or heavily wooded area.
While at the FAMCAMP in Dayton, there were about 25 campers there. Only 4 had their antennas pointed in the correct direction. Most were pointed at Springfield (thinking that was where the stations were) but the TOWERS were southeast of Dayton.

Seems like whoever got there first stuck their antenna up and everyone else used your method. I was getting 23 stations and the other campers were getting the 4 strongest only.

Same camper, same situation in Wisconsin. I camp about 35 miles north of Madison and everyone around me can get most of the stations. I've had nothing but issues getting any of them to come in reliably until I bought an external digital antenna that I mounted up in a tree. Not the ideal situation but it works for now.
