Thanks to the younger generation

Wife and I have been out 4 times in our new Windjammer this season and have used the radio only. Haven't been able to pick up any television stations where we have camped so far. Probably a blessing. Anyway, next week we take our college aged daughter and her friend with us for their last blowout before returning to campus. They want to watch movies. So out to the driveway to see if I can figure it all out. Never got close to getting a picture from the DVD but did get sound. Daughter comes out, hits one button and we are in the theater! God Bless the young-uns!

Glad you got your DVD working.

IF you've never gotten any TV reception I wonder if you're turning on the little
antenna booster?
Look for a tiny button next to the antenna connection in the wall.
Push the button and a little LED should come on.
If you don't have this on, you will not get any TV reception via the antenna.

Thanks for the tip KyDan. I'll have to look for that. We get great receiption at the house (we live in the country south of Kansas City) without the antenna even being raised but once we get to our sites--nothing. I'll have to see where the antenna connection is as the TV is mounted in the entertainment center. We don't have a TV in the bedroom slide and those connections are out in the open and easy to get to.

What you're looking for might look something like this---


You may or may not have the satellite socket but you should have the
coax antenna fitting and the little push on/push off button next to it.
When it's on there is a tiny LED which might be red or green that will
come on.
Mine is mounted in such a way as the coax totally hides the little on/off
button. If I did not know it was there I'd never have found it.

Hopefully someone here with a similar RV as yours will chime in and tell
you where to look.

the antenna booster switch is located in the left cabinet below the tv on the left side wall, also remember to turn off the booster when you hook up to cable.

Also, don't forget to use TV Fool to see where the signals are coming from where you are camping.
Link to TV Fool

If you are camping in the middle of nowhere, the easy way to find the coordinates is with Google Maps. Zoom in on your campground and the click on the "Link Button." (Shown with an arrow below.) You will see the coordinates where I was looking are 38.674789 and -94.428177. You will only need 38.67 and -94.42 for TV Fool; as that brings you within a mile.

the camper has been great so far with the exception of the concertone unit, we went thru 3, with the last one being the new genisis unit that has been working great. we ordered ours in late jan. received it in early march, even with the custom things we had done like no carpet in the bedroom we have the wood look floor thruout the camper. other thing we wanted was to have the awning cover both doors they said it couldnt be done, two months later the 2012 model is out with the awning moved and as far we can tell that is the only change.
