The button turns on the signal booster for the antenna. If your TV has a 12 volt (cigarette lighter cord) plug that cord into the 12 volt outlet (cigarette lighter hole). If your TV has a regular plug like at your home, plug it into the 120 AC outlet (like you have at home). You need to connect a coaxial cable from the plate with the button and the threaded outlet (connect it to the threaded outlet) and to the TV. Raise the antenna. You will need to scan for TV channels from the antenna setting in you TV (not cable). You will need to have your camper plugged into shore power (a 30 amp 120 power outlet) using the camper power cord.
