You did not say you did a scan for channels??? Each time you re locate and hook up you will have to scan for channels for cable or tv. If all that does not work, you could have a bad cable connection or cable even.

Take a picture of the power booster plate. Let's see how it is configured.

Hooking to outside cable and turning power booster off was sufficient for my 24B. Maybe a park cable problem??

I did scan for channels.....beginning to think it might have been the park cable hookup.

I had a problem with the connection at the pedestal the last time I was out. Picture was really crappy. Unscrewed it and reconnected and pushed in really hard, and it helped.

If you're on cable in the CG, the booster in the upper cabinet over the door should be OFF not on. That booster is only for the roof antenna. If it's on, you won't get a signal to the TV on cable.

Also make sure that you choose the right input on the TV, pick "cable" and not "antenna", then you have to do a channel scan.

Does the cable system in your campground require renting a cable box, ask the office?

Probably, it should have a small led light when the booster is on. This booster is a switch between OTA (Over The Air) antenna and park cable.
