Need a little help

Have looked around in our Eagle SuperLite HT 26.5 RLS for an antenna booster and can't seem to find one. Looked at the area where the outlets come out of the wall under the TV set and see nothing. Can someone help me find what I need. I would love to be able to watch over-the-air TV in my driveway when I'm just messing around. The TV did search for, and find, the channels that should be available from boosters in our area, but no picture came in. Please, give me some help.

Jal,
What year is your TT? If it's got a few years on it perhaps it wasn't available when manufactured. Mine is on the underside of the cabinet above the TV.

It's a 2012, guess I'll just have to go out there and look it over a bit more thoroughly. Thanks for the replies.

I am sure that yours is different than mine, but the switch for mine is in the bedroom where the bedroom TV jack is (in a cabinet next to the closet).

Our is under the tv as well. I also added a wingman to the antenna. That is my favorite mod so far. It more than doubled the tv stations that we are able to pickup.

Likely it is in the Bedroom where the connection for the BR TV is.

The antenna booster is actually in the antenna up on the roof. What you are referring to is the power switch for it.

My wall plate unit has a 12VDC cigarette plug on it and a BLACK small push button switch which turns on a GREEN lamp I think... Mine is a RV-7042 model that looks something like this....

photo from google images

On my wall plate is also a standard F-connector and my HDTV has to be connected to this connector in order to use the OTA antenna. Also the GREEN light has to be "ON"...

I think other setups may be different...

I've got the Eagle Superlite HT 23.5 and the booster is in the cabinet below the TV, to the right of the cable. Only reason I know this, is that I opened the door and saw the green light. Picked up the 5er yesterday and the tech must have left the booster on. Good thing I'm parked at home and plugged in. Good way to drain a battery if parked in storage

Thanks a bunch guys. Didn't really think to look in the bedroom area, but it's exactly where a couple of you said and it's exactly like the picture from RoyBraddy. Once again, thanks a bunch!!!!!!!!!!!!
