Smile New Owner 195RB - AC Question

I recently bought a new Jayco SLX7 195RB, my first travel trailer and I have a question about roof mounted AC.

Obviously when I turn it on it starts to cool trailer, but dealer was not clear on thermostat or control. Does it just keep running unless I have it turned off? Or am I missing something.

It also appears that in installing the roof ac, my antenna does not work. I do have appointment with dealer in October to look at antenna.

Are the ac controls on the ac or the wall? I suspect on the ac. The fan will continue to run non stop, but the compressor will cycle as needed.

Antenia; radio or tv? The TV, has an amplifier button. It will be mounted were the antenna wite connects to the wall.

If you have an A/C at home it is the same. You set the temp. You set the fan either on or auto. If in auto it will cycle on and off with the compressor. If you select ON the fan will stay on and the compressor will cycle on and off with the set temp. I leave mine at home and in the RV in Auto. I like the quiet.

AC Controls are on the AC .. so I'm assuming no thermostat control, I just have to turn fan down.

As for Antenna, yep button wall shows green but still cant pick up any stations. I was at campsite and another Jayco Owner with similar Antenna pulled close to me and I asked him & he received 2 channels while I got none...
