Default 2015 RT SS Agile TV Reception via Antenna?

Hello Forum Members,

We have had very limited success in receiving TV via antenna in our 2015 Roadtrek SS Agile. We really don’t plan to watch TV much anyway, but it might come in handy during our 5-week trip later this summer. Can anybody give suggestions? We recently purchased a “Flatwave” antenna to “cut the cable cord” in our home and we received 17 channels- this even though we live in the Adirondack Mountain area of upstate NY. No luck however with the RT supplied “Solo” antenna. I am attaching a picture of the two coaxial connections FYI; perhaps we are not hooked up properly?

Thanks

Steve

That coax jack appears to be an antenna amplifier. Have you turned it on using that little white button? The LED next to the button should be on, showing that the amp has power and is turned on.

Yep, you need that small button pressed to power up the antenna booster. If that doesn’t work, remove the antenna wall plate and inspect the cable connections, make sure the antenna is connected to the antenna feed connector of the wall plate. There are 3 coax connectors in the back of the wall plate; there is possibility that RT connected it to the wrong one.

Thanks for the replies! We found two issues after receiving your input:

1) the 10A fuse for the AV system was blown so we weren’t getting power to the antenna amplifier. We replaced the fuse but of course now we’re wondering what could have caused the fuse to blow.
2) the cable coaxial cable was hooked up to the “TV 2” location on the back of the face plate; not the connection labeled “cable”. We switched that to correct the connections.

We were able to receive spotty reception of several channels over the air via both the Solo antenna and the Flatwave antenna, so it looks like the issues are resolved. We haven’t tried hooking up to cable TV yet but hopefully that will work as well!

Thanks!

Steve
