Correct, that's the way mine works. Booster on, all three on antenna, booster off all three on cable.

Dumb question only because you weren't specifiic. Have you tried the bedroom tv without being connected to cable port on the outside of the TT? Then you should enable the booster which may be near the main entertainment center.

I have and it won't pull a signal from the antenna without the booster on. On the other hand I hooked up cable once and had the booster on. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get a cable signal. I tried turning it off and got the cable. That's how I figured this out and later verified it on this forum. I'll say again: that's how mine works, may be how yours works too.

I now have the same situation with the FM/NOAA radio being hooked up to the antenna, no booster, no signal but with the booster I get many stations where I got none on the conventional antenna.

I installed an antenna booster in the bedroom also only because I needed the 12v source. So where do I hook up the single cable wire on the power antenna booster in the bedroom?

Yes, correct. Don't connect the bedroom cable to the "booster control" that you installed in the bedroom. Connect that cable directly to the coax connection on your TV. It is being fed from the booster control in the living room, as others have indicated. (There are also cheaper outlets you could have used to put a 12v plug in the bedroom and those wouldn't have been so confusing to whomever owns your RV when you sell it.)

Adding a booster to the bedroom is where you lost me earlier. All 3 rvs I've owned had all connections run thru the 1 booster, wherever it is. Booster on..... scan TV for antenna signals. If yours doesnt do it that way, i have no clue. Wish i could help.

Success! The power booster worked in the bedroom. I now have antenna signal in the bedroom and can watch the tv at night without the generator on! Thanks everyone for your help!
