X17Z no TV channels

I have a 2015 X17Z. We just put a TV in it but are not getting any channels.
I have tried the booster on and off and rotating the antenna around, but I am getting no signal at all. I programmed the Tv
at home so I know it works. Any suggestions to try?

are you sure you have the input selected correctly on the TV? Coax..maybe it is on Hdmi or something..just a thought other than that maybe there are no channels to get where you are sitting

Check the coax connection on the antenna and the booster has to be on.

I know there are channels where we are. Is there a coax connection at the antenna on the roof? I have tried two different cables with no luck.

That is what I forgot at the beginning of this season...the booster switch! Make sure you power up the booster!

OK I was checking on a main channel with no luck and decided to flip through the other channels. I am getting 2 but not very well even after rotating the antenna. Is there anything I can do to boost the signal more short of getting satellite? We just became members at the campground as it is a 1/2 hr from our home.

I get one or two channels when the trailer is at home but nothing camping. There are very few over the air TV channels left.
