New to forum from WV

We are new to this forum, and just wanted say hello to all. We reside in West Virginia and are avid campers. We've owned several campers but just came home with a 2014 Salem 27RLSS today! Just trying things out in it to get a feel for the differences between it and our old Sandpiper fifth-wheel. I do have one question, does anyone have this new non turning tv antenna? I've got the booster on, and it looks hooked up correctly, but only getting 4 channels! We could get 13 with old non-digital Wineguard on old camper, and just wondering if anyone knows of cure for this? Thanks for any help. Happy camping.

Welcome and enjoy. Is your booster on? Do you have a picture of the antenna? I'm not familiar with it but curious.

If it's round sounds like an omni directional antenna. Have not read overall good reviews for this type antenna. Your experience coinsides with majority of other evaluations I have read.

Welcome from Huntsville, AL! RE: your antenna, second Bubbles review and I also wonder if you turned your booster on - it is a button usually found near the AC and cable plugs near your AV center...I missed turning this on first time we were out

Thanks

Thanks to all for the warm welcomes! Probably be asking more questions in the future and picking everyones brains. Still struggling with this new antenna ( yes, booster is on ) that doesn't seem to be worth a nickel. Anyway, happy camping to all!
