Russell, I see that your TV has two way power. I don't think I have seen that before. I can see why you might think a cable may not be needed. Does the instructions tell you how much of a draw on the battery the tv would use?

In my Jayco Eagle Super Lite 5th wheel I don't see a booster for the over the air antenna. Am I missing something?

Thanks.

The box says Max 25W

...And an update on reception...
Now that I plugged the darn coax in I get good reception. Analog channels are poor, I don't get them very often but the digital ones are fantastic... the picture quality is amazing.

If your's is like mine, the booster is turned on by pushing a little black button near where the antenna cable for the TV is attached; there should be a small green led light that is on when the booster is on.

Here is perhaps a little help .... Go to www.antennaweb.com on the internet, put in the address of the campground locatons (you don't have to be exact) it will tell you the local channels, the distance and the compas heading for the transmitters... If you don't have the interneet on the road or a smart phone you could always do it before you leave for a specific location your headed ... it's a great tool..

We just purchased a 2013 26RKS and hope to get it in 6 weeks.. I'm sure I will make some of the same mistakes as we start out.. but hopefully my tip on Antennaweb.com might be of some help down the road..

And on that note.. rather than gooing for the technology package I am going to pick up a 26" TV for the Bedroom and either a 26 or larger for the front room... lots of choices .. now the fun begins as we ready for our unit to get here... By the Way, we are in Tennessee

Not sure if you got your problem resolved but I was having the same issue and I did have the booster on. So I statred checking connections. Of course it was the last one I checked. I pulled the booster out of the wall and found a loose connection on the back plate of the booster. Scanned in 15 channels here in the middle of no where...lol
