Lesson Learned - Secret green button

I am sure most of you know this but I wanted to share this with others that are new.

Our first trip out, the campground had cable TV. I hooked everything up and switched the TV mode from air to cable. It never found any channels. I read the instructions from the campground and even bought a new 25' cable.

Turns out that there is a little green button on the wall. In my case it is behind the TV near the cable plug in on the wall. The way I understand it the button powers on or off the antenna booster. Use it on for over the air TV and turn it off for cable TV. If you have it on you will not get cable channels.

FYI - the kitchen in the coach is going to serve as a supplemental kitchen for our Thanksgiving this year. Turkey and trimmings will cook in the house and the ham and cookies will cook in the coach.

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to try the green button on my way to Yuma next month as I never could figure why I was not getting TV reception when I was hooked up to cable in the campgrounds on my way to and from Yuma two years ago.

And you have to re-program the tv and select the type signal input at each new location. Don't ask me how I know.

My 11 year old grandson handles all of the technical stuff like this cause I sure can't figure it out. I grew up with 3 B&W manually tuned channels you received from a 50' antenna on top of your house and all three channels were off the air by 10:30pm. But it wasn't all that bad..... one channel would show grainy "B" rated scary movies until the stroke of midnight, but only on Saturday nights.

Been there, done it as well. Doesn't help when it's pushed in and you can't see it.

Great comments thanks all. Glad I wasnt the only one. Wish the manuals were more clear on this kind of thing.

That dang little button has caused lots of grief for many of us. I'll add to that list the bathroom vent switch next to the sink. I spent more time than I'd like to admit trying to figure out why the ceiling vent fan was not turning on when I turned on the toggle switch on the unit on the ceiling. Then I remembered....the switch by the sink controls it.
