2604. No TV channels on Air

This wkend is our first trip without cable TV. I did a scan and have no channels. I had plenty of channels other years with our old camper. Where is the antenna booster, is there one? TV in living area is hard wired to the stereo system. TV in bedroom does not have a booster button. ????

If you can, go backward from tv coax to find booster....will only have one. Tv set to air. Booster will have a button on it to turn it on and off, if you've never had one before....light on, booster on.

When leaving put the antenna down as well. Something hanging from power cord outside is a good reminder.

There might ALSO be a switch allowing you to select from Ant-Cable-Sat.

After raising the antenna and powering the booster try using antennapoint.com or tvfool.com and point your antenna towards the transmitters before doing a channel scan.

If you are using a Winegard antenna with the Wingman option, you will have more range but also a tighter reception angle. If you don't have the above app, look at what your neighbors are doing.
