Omnidirectional antenna

Ourselves and friends of ours just bought a 2015 coachmen and a 2015 vibe. They came equipped with the new fangled antenna and they are not good. We bought 12 dollar rabbit ears and hooked it up and get 3 times the stations as the entertainment center. You would think that paying 30k for a new coach would get you decent reception on a system they tout as the 'entertainment package'. Anyone out there having the same issues on these new rigs?

While they're not the best thing in the world they do work relatively well. Since they're amplified antenna's you have to have the amplifier turned on. I've forgotten to press the little button a few times.

If you had the amplifier on and it still wasn't working it may not be connected correctly behind the wallplate.

Key problem is Omnidrectional. This provide equal gain in all directions at the expsnse of great gain and better signal in a select direction. Change the antenna to a proper directional one.

The antennas are junk. Their performance is minimal. Best solution is to replace it with a Jack.

I had to take mine apart and tighten the connection between the antenna and the camper coax. It must've been loose enough were the voltage wasn't strong enough to make it work. After I did that I was able to get about 30 channels. I was p'd for a while too until I fixed it
