No TV reception

Unable to tune in any local TV broadcasts. Tried to scan local stations, received none. Any ideas... Thanks

Depends .... Usually you have a button on the plate where your tv antenna is plugged in. Pressing it will change from cable to over the air. Some have a separate button to turn on the antenna.

Please post what Brand your RV is and what year because you didn't list it in your profile.
FR makes nearly 100 different brands and many share the same model number.

in a lot of cases it isn't the antenna or the RV, check your setting within your television. make sure it's set to the input source to scan for over the air signals. All TV's are different... Poke around in your settings menu

Look to see what direction other campers have their antenna pointed before you do the scan. This might help you zero in on the strongest signals.
