Television or Cable in TT

Hey All, just a question with our television in our TT. We took the TT out for our first trip and i raised the antenna and did the channel search on the tv and the search did not find any channels. My question is, is there some sort of attachment that i need? or is there another function that i need to do to find the local channels?

my TT is a 2014 Apex 288 BHS

Does your trailer have that little button at the outlet that amplifies the antenna signal? I have to push that little guy in for the antenna to work. You're might be different than mine though as mine doesn't raise either.

Make sure TV is set to air or antenna before starting channel scan too

Button is right next to hookup panel - very small hard to find - might be black button and turns on a small red or green LED light when on

It will be where your TV, either main TV or more often, bedroom TV cable screws into the wall or ceiling.

Also very much depends where you are...there are several parks we go to where we can't get any channels, and others where all we get has very poor reception...its hit and miss.

Might be located inside a cabinet near where the main TV/entertainment center is located. If light is on it will be in the antenna boost mode. If you hook up to cable be sure to press button to turn it off or you will likely get bad reception.

May look like one of these. Tiny black button will press in and out turning booster on when light comes on.
