I have a 08 Rockwood 5er (8281ss). I have 3 places from the factory designed for tv hookup in the camper; one in the living room that, one in the bunkhouse and one in the "master bedroom". I can get over the air t.v. channels on the living room t.v. (which is the 12v model that came with the camper), whenever I want as long as the booster is on and I do a channel scan. Can I use the booster from the living room and roof antenna to get over the air signals on the other two t.v.'s? So far I have not been able to achieve this. I have two new t.v.'s for the bedrooms that are digital ready, etc. but can't get any over the air channels on them.
Do I need to buy seperate antenna's for these other two t.v.'s or can I achieve what I want to do using the excisting coaxial jacks in the bedroom with my excisting equipment?
The one ant. will provide signal for your three tvs. We have to do some guessing here. Where your Living room tv is you have the ant. outlet, do you also have the coax leads from the other tvs? If so you will need a three way splitter to feed the signal from the ant. outlet to the other tvs. Like said before you will also have to do a channel scan on all tvs. I see you live in Iowa if its eastern do not plan on getting two many channels.
Version 1: Is a wall plate with an antenna outlet, 12 volt outlet switch and LED (There may be additional plates without the switch and LED) Switch on is OTA TV, switch off is CABLE
The back side of the one with the Switch has either 3 or 4 antenna conectors, In order left to right with the 12 volt outlet at the top
OTA antenan, Park Cable, TV 2, TV 3 (Last is optional)
The other is a "Box of many buttons" Which is what I have.
WIth the wall plate the same signal goes to all sets.
NOW: here is the issue:
If the wall plate has only 3 connectors on the back, then a splitter is somewhere "Downline" of that plate, this splitter if well designed means you get 1/2 the signal at each of the other two tv's. If poorly designed 1/4.
AND what's worse you have many feet of lowest bidder RG-59,, Though normally this is not that big a problem (is for me, but only slightly).
There may be other issues as well, IE: some idiot stapling THROUGH the coax instead of around it.
Nothin adds excitment like something that is none of your business

Ideally you would have a mmulti-meter. With two people you could diagram the wires and have the other person short each end while you watch for the short on the meter. Once you know what wires go where you can get signals where and when you want them.
Does the RV have a DVD player and a cable connection? If it does, there is probably also a set of selector switches to choose which of the three possible signals is sent to each TV. Our motorhome had two TV sets and there as a selector witch center with three choices for each TV set.
