Loss of tv antenna amplifier

When I turn on bathroom or bedroom lights I lose some of my tv channels, still have power to amplifier switch. Turn lights off channel comes back, don`t lose all channels. GHOSTS wierd. Any suggestions?

not sure which rv you have but I had something similar happening on my rockwood 8280. I would turn the bedroom tv on and the living room tv would go blank. In the back of my living room tv, I had a 90 degree adapter that connected the coax cable to the tv. I removed the 90 degree adapter and hooked the coax cable directly to the tv and that solved my problem. If you have any of those 90 degree adapters, you may want to remove them and see if that solves your problem.

Many, included myself, have the same issue caused by the LED lighting. I've read that a few members have gotten higher quality lamps and that helped. My dealer didn't really want to even discuss that, and we rarely watch the thing so we just deal with it.

I have a Columbus. My TV also loses antenna signal when you turn on the bathroom or hall way lights on. It is caused by the cheap LED lighting that the trailer came with.
