Where is TV splitter on 31UL

We have a 2016 31UL and we're trying to replace the TV in the dinette. Before we unhooked the old TV, we had plenty of OTA channels. Now we get very few. We tested with the old and new TVs and have the same problem now. The bedroom and outside TVs still get all of the channels, so there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the connection to the antenna.

We're thinking maybe there is an issue at/with the splitter. Does anyone know where the splitter is located? Any other suggestions?

Have you configured the new TV for input "antenna"?

Yes.


Every time we do an auto scan, it finds a different number of channels. Sometimes the channel list starts at 16, sometimes at 32, sometimes at 40... We are always missing the lower channel numbers.

Take the TV back and exchange it for another or call the manufacturer's help line.

Check the coax fitting, you may have pulled it partway off. The factory crimps are not always the best.

Use one of the phone apps or online sites and verify which stations you should be receiving at your current location. I'd start there before I tore into the wiring.

There was nothing wrong with the TV or the antenna. We finally got it working. For the record, the splitter is behind the side panel in the cabinet that holds the Blu Ray player.
